10 Ways to Use Your Unstoppable Web3 Domain

Discover all the ways you can use your Web3 domain thanks to Unstoppable Domains, which has developed numerous integrations to bring domains to Web3.

Managing your Unstoppable Domain

Before using your new domain, it is important to know where to find it and how to manage it.

You can always view it in your Unstoppable account, in the My Domains section.

From here, by clicking on “Manage” you can manage the details, i.e. add information to your profile. Once completed, you can view the public content of the domain at ud.me/your-domain-name and share it with whomever you wish.

Let’s now look at 10 ways to use your Unstoppable Domain on the Web3.

1. Readable Wallet Address

Unstoppable Domains has developed a feature called Reverse Resolution, which serves to associate a Web3 domain name with a wallet address.

This way, you can replace the long and complex addresses of your wallets with a single name: that of your Web3 domain.

So, if you need to send cryptocurrencies from an exchange to your wallet, you can just type in your domain name with a reduced risk of making mistakes. Or, if you need to get a friend to pay you in crypto, just send them your domain.

You can thus receive Bitcoin, Ethereum and 264 other cryptocurrencies without worrying about entering the wrong address. 

2. Encrypted and private email

A second feature by Unstoppable Domains is the possibility of having an @ud.me email address associated with your domain. This address can be linked to your personal Google, Outlook or Skiff email, an end-to-end encrypted mailbox. All e-mails you send this way will show that they come from your Unstoppable e-mail and not from your personal address.

3. Decentralised website

You can create your own decentralised website and join the almost 30,000 internet domains created by the #UDfam!

Thanks to the integration of Unstoppable Domains with Brave, it is possible to create decentralised content completely independently. Brave supports the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed system.

4. Social profile and badge

You can associate your Unstoppable domain with your social profiles on Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, Discord and Telegram. Show your domain on social media to signal your membership of a community that actively participates in Web3. Through the domain, you can also show some personal achievements, such as membership in NFT projects or the number of domains you own. Unstoppable Domains partners can also create domain-supported badges to reward their communities. So if you participated in a historical moment of an Unstoppable partner crypto project, you can have proof of this on your blockchain domain.

5. Rewards in video games

If you love climbing game rankings, you will love what Unstoppable is doing for your glorious victoires.

Thanks to Reverse Resolution, you can associate a domain with your gamertag in some games and metaverses. This enhances the experience especially in play-to-earn video games that allow you to obtain and use cryptocurrencies. In addition, Unstoppable is collaborating with many gaming companies, including Atari and Gamestop.

6. Access to Dapps

With an Unstoppable Domain, you can access a large number of Dapps easily, from DeFi to gaming. This way you can choose which information you want to share with each Dapp, from all the information associated with your Web3 digital identity.

All this, thanks to the Single Sign-On (SSO) service ‘Login with Unstoppable’. Part of this functionality is also Humanity Check. This is a verified but 100% private identity level that you can associate with your Unstoppable domain. With Humanity Check, you can prove that you are a unique person when using an app, in order to enrich your experience and collect rewards. All without revealing any personal information to the app.

7. Collecting and buying

Imagine if you could have bought websites in the 1990s, before they became popular. That is why some people buy Web3 domains today, but there are also many people who buy them for fun, as collector’s items.

If you think there might be demand, you can offer your domain for sale either on the Unstoppable website or on the Opensea NFT marketplace.

8. Digital business card

With the new Unstoppable app, you can download a customised business card with your Web3 domain, profile picture and a link to your domain profile. The card is currently optimised for the lock screen or clock face of the iPhone. 

9. Training certificates

With its partner Bitdegree, Unstoppable Domains allows users to take their training results with them to Web3. Those who complete a course will obtain a badge attesting to their achievements in their Unstoppable Domain profile.

10. Tips and donations

You can connect your Unstoppable Domain with Coinkit, a wallet dedicated to tipping (tips, donations) on social networks.

This is only the beginning. There is much more to come on Unstoppable and in Web3 in general.
