Summer News in Web3 

news in web3

Web3 is changing the internet and the world as we know it. Although it is still early, this new version of the world wide web is progressing rapidly in the digital and technological space. At this rate, it won’t be long before Web3 completely decentralizes the internet and replaces Web 2.0 once and for all.

If you don’t wish to be behind the times, staying informed about the latest advancements in the Web3 landscape is essential. With numerous exciting Web3 developments unfolding worldwide, we have curated the top 3 latest advancements for the summer of 2023.

Dapps are on the rise this year

Dapps, short for Decentralized Applications, are spreading like wildfire in the Web3 ecosystem. More than 100 Dapps have already been released this year, and we’re only mid-way into 2023.

So, what exactly are Dapps?

Simply put, these are applications built on blockchain technology. That means they are not hosted on a centralized server but over a peer-to-peer network of decentralized servers.

We’re seeing a lot of Smart Contract Wallet apps like Obvious and Plena Finance, which makes sense, given that decentralized finance, or DeFi, is one of the most promising prospects of Web3. These wallets are typically non-custodial, meaning the user has full control over their private keys and funds, and there is no need to rely on a third party to manage the wallet.

DexCheck is also making headlines as it’s set to launch on multiple IDO launchpads this year. It’s an AI-enhanced blockchain analytics tool that provides insights into crypto and NFT trades. Dapps like these quickly enter the market and offer multiple diverse functionalities in the Web3 ecosystem.

BaaS solutions are simplifying blockchain technology

While blockchain has massive benefits and the potential to revolutionize the future, it also has one serious limitation. The technology is too complicated for most people to wrap their heads around.

Sure, most of the world is now familiar with blockchain, and many people get the basic concept of how it works. But when it comes to implementation, building apps and tools over the blockchain infrastructure is incredibly difficult and complex. However, all that is set to change, thanks to Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS).

BaaS solutions allow individuals, businesses, and developers to utilize blockchain technology without setting up their own blockchain infrastructure. BaaS providers offer pre-built blockchain platforms and APIs that enable users to quickly and easily integrate blockchain capabilities into their applications, projects, or business processes.

Alchemy, for example, is a high-quality BaaS platform where users can build Web3 applications using a wide range of built-in development tools. As BaaS solutions continue to grow and expand, it will enable more people to build intuitive decentralized Web3 apps without having to climb the steep learning of blockchain technology.

Crypto domains are getting popular

Perhaps the biggest Web3 advancement in recent times is the growing popularity of crypto domains. Unlike traditional domains, crypto domains are not controlled by any centralized authority as they are built on blockchain. Ownership of these domains is tied to a specific blockchain address, such as crypto wallet address or smart contracts.

Crypto domains are still not widespread, but they are slowly gaining traction. Currently, Freename is one of the best platforms where users can mint, purchase, and own crypto domains. With a crypto domain, one can create decentralized websites, chat with Web3 emails, and even make cryptocurrency payments conveniently.

And what’s more interesting is that given how Web3 is the future of the internet, crypto domains will get even more popular, in demand, and widespread soon. That means owning a crypto domain today might be a huge investment when its value grows multiple-folds a few years later.

Summary

This summer has witnessed remarkable advancements in the Web3 landscape, bringing forth the rise of DApps, Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS), and the emergence of Crypto Domains. These developments signify the continuous evolution of blockchain technology, paving the way toward a decentralized and interconnected future.

By staying informed and embracing these transformative technologies, we can actively leverage the opportunities they offer, embrace new user experiences, and witness the decentralization of the world wide web.

Why do i Need a Wallet?

Freename domains are blockchain-based assets and would be minted and stored using a wallet. Users are required to mint and manage their domains using a Metamask or Coinbase-configured wallet. It must be a non-custodial wallet, meaning that one must own the private keys to the wallet in order to approve transactions via a signature.

To benefit from Freename Web 3 domains/TLDs, you must have a wallet. This is because Web 3 domains/TLDs are blockchain-based assets. Users can mint and manage their domains using Metamask or Coinbase-configured wallets.

Keep in mind that it must be a non-custodial wallet. You own the private keys to the wallet (in order to approve transactions via a signature).

Are the Domains Associated with ICANN?

ICANN does not manage freename.io domains. Freename.io believes their TLDs/domains must allow customers to operate independently. Freename.io wants to build a utility infrastructure, allowing customers to use their services for valuable and generative purposes. By leveraging blockchain technology, Freename Web 3 domains/TLDs have no centralized authority imposing rules and regulations.

What is a Wallet?

Every blockchain user requires a wallet in order to interact with the network. A wallet is essentially an account on the blockchain where transactions can be sent and received. It is also where one can store blockchain assets such as cryptocurrency or NFTs (non-fungible tokens). There is no personal information associated with a wallet and none is required to create one. A wallet consists of a public key and a private key. The public key can be safely shared with anyone who wishes to send assets to the corresponding wallet, however, the private key should not be shared and is the key to accessing the wallet in the event where access is lost or to create another instance.

A crypto wallet (cryptocurrency wallet) is software or hardware that enables users to store and use cryptocurrency. With cryptocurrencies, there isn’t any actual money to carry around in a wallet. They exist on the blockchain. Similarly to traditional bank transfers, crypto wallets enable users to send and receive cryptocurrencies, NFTs, etc.

A wallet consists of a public key and a private key. To receive assets, you share your public key associated with your wallet. You should NEVER share your private key.

Can i Transfer Domains?

Yes. The domain is stored in your cryptocurrency wallet and can be transferred by you after you have minted it. Access your portfolio, select the TLD or Domain you wish to transfer and type the recipient’s address. Afterwards, you must paste the OTP code you received by mail to confirm the transaction. Keep in mind that currently, it is not possible to import the domain that has been transferred, but it will be possible soon!

Yes. Domains are transferable ONLY after a TLD/domain has been minted and stored in a user’s wallet.

To transfer the TLD (or domain), the user must:

  • Access their wallet
  • Select the item they want to transfer
  • Enter the recipient’s address.
  • Confirm the transaction by pasting the OTP received by email

In the future, Freename.io will support importing domains that have been transferred.

What about Trademarks?

Registering a trademark on your Freename Web3 TLD will allow you to protect your web3 TLD and your logo worldwide juridically.

From the moment you deposit a trademark request, your web3 TLD will be protected worldwide for 6 months awaiting for the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE.ch) to confirm and register the availability of your TLD.****

A trademark is any symbol, phrase, or word that allows customers to identify a company’s goods or services. Freename is a web3 domain/TLD provider that also provides trademark registration.

A user must reach out to the trademark department to register a trademark. To get your trademark filed for review at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, a user must provide the following:

  1. Complete a Know your customer (KYC)
  2. A list of TLDs they wish to trademark
  3. Proof of payment

Once these conditions are met, it takes one week for the trademark to be reviewed and logo/TLDs to be provided with six months of worldwide protection.

Is Minting the same as Buying?

Purchasing a TLD (or domain) on Freename and minting it on the blockchain are two distinct steps. When you purchase a TLD (or domain), the transaction is recorded in Freename’s database and not on the blockchain. Minting a TLD (or domain) on the blockchain requires a second step: log into the user’s personal area, select the TLD (or domain) and press “mint TLD” (or domain): done! Don’t worry, once you have purchased a Freename domain, no one can take it away from you!

No. Buying and Minting a TLD/domain are two different things.**

Buying **is the process of recording a transaction on Freename’s database and not on the blockchain.

Minting is the process of pushing a user’s domain from Freename.io data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full control over the TLD/domain.

It is very easy to mint a domain/TLD once you purchase it. Simply:

  • Log into your personal area
  • Select the TLD (or domain)
  • Press “mint TLD” (or domain)

What is Domain Minting?

Minting is the process of publishing a Freename domain (or TLD) on the blockchain via your wallet to gain full custody of the domain. This means that the only person that has control over the domain (or TLD) is the person who controls (has access to) the wallet.

Minting is the process of pushing a user’s domain from Freename.io data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full ownership over the domain.

Minting on Freename.io is as simple as the following steps:

  1. Go to the Freename.io website
  2. Enter the TLD/domain you want to buy in the search bar
  3. Add the TLD/domain to your cart
  4. Go to checkout
  5. Create a Freename.io account
  6. Purchase the TLD/domain with cryptocurrency or a credit card
  7. Go to “portfolio and incomes.”
  8. Click on mint TLD/domain

Which domains are Protected?

Protected domains and TLDs are domains and TLDs that we’ve detected are associated with a brand, organization, or notable person. We believe it is important to increase adoption for the next generation of the internet by helping to onboard brands into the Web3 era. If you are interested in applying for a Protected domain, please contact us.

TLDs/Domains associated with a notable person, brand or organization are considered Protected Domains. Protected domains help onboard brands in Web 3 increasing adoption. Protected domains also protect users from others impersonating/stealing their domains.

Why use Freename?

Freename domains are unique by their very nature: only with Freename you can register domains with unique TLDs for your digital identity while passively earning money!

Freename.io is not only the leading TLD and Domains platform in Web 3, but also lets users generate passive income!

Owning a Freename Web 3 TLD entitles users to receive passive income whenever a domain is bought on their TLD. Users can register and mint TLD/domains of their choice if available.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is a string of letters and/or numbers that points to the IP address of the corresponding website. Generally, it is easier to remember a name than a long string of numbers.

A domain name is an address that people type into a browser bar to find a website. It consists of a Top-Level Domain (TLD), everything that comes after the dot, and the Second-Level Domain (SLD), everything that comes before the dot.

For example, “Freename.io” is the domain name, “Freename” is the SLD and “io” is the TLD.

Which Chains are Supported?

Freename has a multi-chain approach. You can choose on which Blockchain to mint your Web3 Domains and TLDs ranging Among Polygon, Cronos, and Binance.

A user can mint a Freename.io domain/TLD on the following blockchains:

  • Polygon
  • Cronos
  • Binance

Freename plans to expand its multi-chain approach by adding blockchains upon which domains can be minted.

Are there Renewal Fees?

No! Once you’ve bought a Freename Domain or TLD, it’s yours forever, no renewal fees ever!

No. There are no renewal fees on Freename.io. Once a user has paid a one-time payment for a domain/TLD, they own it. Forever.

This is the significant advantage of Web 3 domain/TLD over traditional alternatives.
