NFT domains have completely revolutionized how domains are managed and used. The NFT domain is very different from the traditional centralized domain name. An NFT domain is not governed by centralized authorities, it is in fact decentralized and therefore it is controlled by the users themselves (1).
Since NFT domain names are decentralized they have the potential to be utilized in a wider variety in comparison to the conventional domain names. The NFT domain can be stored on the digital wallet of the users. They could even replace the lengthy alphanumeric address with the domain name as these domain names are unique and cannot be copied.
The NFT domain is also a digital asset as they are listed in the public ledger, unlike the traditional domain name. Their value is quite similar to the crypto coins and tokens.
Decentralized domains are very secure and prevent any interference from the third party. Therefore, many users have been interested in minting their own NFT domain name.
Quik.com (2) is one such platform that services its user with the ability to mint, buy, sell, and hold NFT domains. The internet right now is in the process of transitioning from web2 to web3. We can observe the rising interest of common people in projects like a metaverse. The demands for a decentralized, permissionless, trustless platform have been rising. In such a situation, the internet is bound to undergo changes, and one of the major contributors to these changes would be NFT domain names.
Platforms like Quik.com have already started adopting new technologies in order to assist the users to gain their own NFT domains and be well prepared for future changes (3). Quik strives to popularise and increase the acceptance of NFT domains in the whole world.
Quik.com helps the users to mint their own domain name, the users can even buy and hold NFT domain names. Quik plans to launch a chrome plugin, which would facilitate its users to surf through Web3. They can even host their own decentralized web3 website through these extensions.
Quik function as an entry point to web3 through the NFT domain and browser plugin. Many users among those who were first to sign up to this platform would be given immediate access to web3, they would even be able to post their content on these websites (4).
Why choose NFT domain names over traditional domain names?
The NFT domain has to be purchased only once, they would have complete control over their NFT domain names, and would not be asked for renewal charges. The traditional domain owners have to renew their domain names because they lease them from the centralized domain naming services. Therefore, users now prefer the NFT domain over other conventional domains.
The NFT domain is stored in the digital wallets of the users, therefore they can be easily monitored. The traditional domain name is governed by centralized authority, therefore the centralized authority holds control over these domain names.
Web3 is supposed to be a decentralized, democratized, permissionless, trustless experience, the traditional domain can not for a fact fulfill these promises. The NFT domain on the other hand is fully capable of facilitating these concepts. When we compare the traditional and the NFT domains side by side, the users could clearly view the benefits (5) of the NFT domain.
The NFT domain names make the whole process of transaction hassle-free because the users can replace the lengthy alphanumeric crypto-address of the digital wallet with the domain name. The NFT domain is not affected by censorship therefore it will always be online and it can only be taken down by the owner.
The NFT domain will function as the universal username of the user in web3!
