May 13, 2021, | AtoZ Markets – Brave browser now has .crypto domains. Brave announced that its browser now provides native support for crypto domain name companies, allowing users to seamlessly access “.crypto” domains through desktop and Android applications.

Unlike so-called traditional domains that are stored on behalf of users by custodians like Google Domains, .crypto domains are stored in crypto wallets.

The leading privacy-focused browser Brave is the latest browser to integrate this decentralized domain support from blockchain domain name provider Unstoppable Domains. Meanwhile, this new borrowed feature unlocks access to 30,000 decentralized websites and over 700,000 blockchain domain names registered with Unstoppable Domains.

Likewise, the integration can also be configured to be resolved via the Ethereum blockchain in the Brave configuration, as noted by Brave co-founder and CTO Brian Bondy.

There is an additional configuration that can only be configured from the configuration shown below called Ethereum. When set, the resolution will occur on the Ethereum blockchain directly and the page will result in an IPFS CID, ”he explained.

“Unstoppable Domains was a natural fit for us, as it gave our users access to the decentralized web with the ability to visit any .crypto domain name. From registering .crypto domains to hosting an NFT art gallery, to sending and receiving crypto, the possibilities are limitless for Brave users, ”said Bondy.

How This New Option Works According to Brave

Unlike traditional domains that are stored on behalf of the user by custodians like GoDaddy or Google Domains, .crypto domains are stored in cryptocurrency wallets.  When a user claims a blockchain domain, it is minted as a non-fungible token, or NFT, on the Ethereum blockchain, providing full ownership and control.

Such domains can also point to content hosted on the Interplanetary File System or to cryptocurrency addresses, simplifying the process of sending and receiving cryptocurrencies on wallets and exchanges such as Coinbase.

We must not forget that .crypto domains are already available in the main browsers since last February through the Cloudflare integration, and also in April the Opera browser expanded its support for .crypto to browsers on all platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.

This is good news for everyone, since it is now easier for investors to access .crypto domains
