Announcing support of Dotsama Domains

TL;DR

  • Universal usernames are human-readable aliases for any Substrate address
  • Integrated into Subsocial products from day 1, able to be integrated into any other Substrate dapps/tools/infrastructure that adds support
  • Will support multiple Top-Level Domains (TLDs) like .sub, .ksm, .movr, .rmrk, etc.
  • Already live on our parachain, secured by Kusama.
  • For now, you can register a domain name only if you have at least 1 SUB on Subsocial parachain.

What are Dotsama Domains?

Dotsama Domains is a decentralized naming system for Polkadot and Kusama ecosystems. You can register your domain in .ksm, .rmrk, .aca, .sub, etc. Dotsama Domains will not reach full power until a later release, but here is what we have in the initial v1.0 release.

1. Personalized domain names on Top-Level Domains that can redirect anywhere

Examples:

2. Universal usernames on the .sub TLD that are integrated into Subsocial dapps

Example: if a domain name is “olehmell.sub”, then it can be used with the following dapps:

Having a single username across hundreds of social dapps will be very convenient, and the consistency would help people to find you on any app.

We built a workaround for a non-existent centralized Web2 .sub TLD, and acquired sub.id domain name to redirect Web3 subdomains for all of the Dotsama Domains usernames.

3. Universal usernames on multiple TLDs that can be integrated into any Dotsama dapps

Examples:

  • olehmell.sub
  • olehmell.dot
  • olehmell.ksm

There are over 1000 TLDs added to the supported list already. In the future we plan to create a token that will be used for governance, moderation, and trading of these domains.

How do I get my Web3 domain / username?

Version 1 was deployed last week and now you can register your domains by following this link:

We are getting ready for the bright future of Dotsama Domains.

These apps will feature built-in monetization methods and censorship resistance, where users will own their content and social graphs.
