With decentralized internet becoming a reality, website owners must embrace the future of blockchain or risk getting left in Web 2.0. New NFT domains marketplace launches to inside new opportunities on Web 3.0.
The majority of internet users today recognize domains as being the combination of letters they type into their browsers. However, what many don’t know is that people design domains to accomplish a lot more than displaying a website, with functionality to send emails and make payments, to list a few. So, why aren’t we seeing domains leveraging this additional utility? In short, the answer comes down to their control from centralized servers. Accordingly, with centralization comes greater control, in turn, adding barriers to innovation.
Fortunately, the rise of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized technologies have proven that once high barriers can be eliminated. Regarding decentralized domains, users maintain self-custody, ensuring the complete control of their assets, verified on the blockchain and stored similar to a cryptocurrency in a virtual wallet.
