What is this?
A simple webapp and smart contract based on ENSNow that lets you name your Ethereum
wallet in 30 seconds, one click, and one transaction.
How does it work?
Enter a phrase to search for, and the app will show you all available
subdomains. Click the one you like best, and your
web3-enabled browser (Metamask, Trust Wallet, or any other) will pop up a transaction confirmation window.
Approve the transaction, and as soon as it's mined, the wallet you
sent the transaction from has a working ENS name! You can now give
anyone your new name in place of your wallet address.
Example: if you picked "joe" as the subdomain, then you could give anyone "joe.dev.eth" as your name and they can send ether or tokens directly to it, without remembering your long address.
How can I trust the owner of the parent domain?
In order to be listed like this, domain owners have to commit
ownership of their name to a smart contract. This contract prohibits
them from making any changes to the name, ever.
This means that your names are secure indefinitely, as long as the domain's hosting costs are being paid. As soon as enough domains have been purchased,
the hosting costs of this parent domain will be paid well in advance. In essence, the domain's life and the life of its subdomains depends on how many people register subdomains,
so make sure you recommend it to others! There's also a commission fee to be earned - just use the referral link functionality!
