Ethereum Name Selection Service (ENS): Send your name instead of wallet address

ENS, or Ethereum Name Service, is a decentralized application (Dapp) that allows users to convert long, hard URLs into short, legible URLs. In this article, we will first explain what ENS is, or the domain registered on the Atrium China blockchain network, and then teach you how to purchase an ENS domain

What is ENS? (Atrium Name Service)

ENS is a registered domain under the Atrium China Blockchain Network through a smart contract runs. You can consider ENS as a Chinese block version of DNS (Domain Name Service). With the difference that it is cheaper and more useful than DNS.

ENS is great, as it is not just an address for sending and receiving atriums, but can be used as a personal domain. Instead of using com. Or org. We can from eth. To use. The basic idea of ​​ENS is to use your name.eth instead of typing long, hexadecimal URLs. This personal domain can be used to send and receive cryptocurrency funds, communicate with smart contracts and reputable exchanges.

Why should we use ENS?

ENS is also a way to earn money. You can register an ENS with 0.01 ETH, in the future sell it for ETH 1 or even 100 ETH (depending on the rarity of the name you registered).

In addition to sending and receiving currency passwords, you can also store other personal information in your domain. Email, Twitter, avatars, and other pages related to you can all be in one place, and everyone can get all the information they need to socialize with you by visiting your domain address.

All ENS domains run under the ERC-721 standard, so each ENS is an NFT. You can sell your domain as an NFT or transfer it to others.

If you want to transfer the currency code to the personal domain of one of your friends or employees and enter the ENS address of the person in question incorrectly and the desired address does not exist, the network will inform you that the entered address is incorrect. While in DNS this is not possible and if you enter the wrong address, even if such an account does not exist, your capital will be lost and will not be refundable. As a result, ENS is more secure than previous systems.

ENS is a completely decentralized system. The registration of a new personal domain in your name is done through the larger Atrium domain (eth.) And through an auction in the Atrium blockchain, and anyone can participate in this auction and assign a domain to themselves.
