Polygon has released the ability to create Web3 .polygon domain names in partnership with Unstoppable Domains. The offering will allow users to log into Web3 applications, make use of human-readable wallet addresses, and build decentralized websites.

The service will be available to approximately 180 million users and 40,000 services across the Polygon blockchain ecosystem. Unstoppable Domains uses Polygon to create decentralized domains with no gas fees. To date, more than 2.7 million domains have been registered on the Polygon blockchain.

Users will be able to use .polygon domains to create digital identities that are compatible across 750 metaverse apps, games, and platforms. These can be used to log into web applications such as cryptocurrency wallet addresses and decentralized websites.

Unstoppable Domains also allows users to create profiles that can be connected to social media channels and act as a digital identity on Web3 platforms and networks.

A statement from Polygon Labs’ vice president of business development, Sanket Shah, highlighted the importance of unlocking user-owned digital identity for Polygon users:

“Web3 domains will give our community a digital identity that belongs entirely to them, so they can log into dapps without revealing their personal information and conduct crypto transactions without lengthy wallet addresses.”

Unstoppable Domains will also offer access to premium .polygon digital and gaming domains starting March 16.

Decentralized domain services like Unstoppable Domains and Ethereum Name Service (ENS) have become popular over the past year, seeing considerable growth on registered domains.

US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has partnered with Unstoppable Domains offer payments via domain identifiers instead of crypto addresses in August 2020. Coinbase then partnered with ENS in September 2022 to provide users with free “name.cb.id” usernames in an effort to replace alphanumeric wallet addresses with human-readable alternatives. humans.
