As cryptocurrency platforms and providers seek further interoperability for Web2 and Web3, the need for compatible internet domains is growing. Integration means naming systems that can work across websites, email, and mobile devices.
D3’s alliance will see the crypto platforms tap into its patent-pending platform to access the benefits of “real Web3 domains.”
Commenting on the partnership and what it means for Web3, D3 CEO Fred Hsu, said: “Our vision is to make Web3 more accessible, transparent, scalable and secure by building futureproof, interoperable digital identities with DNS at the foundation.”
Shiba Inu announced its Shib Name Service (SNS) in late October bringing human-readable addresses to Shibarium. Its partnership with D3 will see SNS transition to the internet domain provider’s platform, making names .shib available to internet users across the world.
“Our partnership with D3 allows us to scale outside of the existing #ShibArmy and give over 5 billion Internet users direct access to the SHIB ecosystem,” Shytoshi Kusama, Lead Developer of Shiba Inu, said in a statement.
“Bringing real domains to SHIB is a big deal, expanding our vision for digital identities within our decentralized ecosystem, while driving long-term revenue generation within the ecosystem,” Kusama added.
