Brave Integrates .Crypto Blockchain Domains, Expanding Access to Web 3.0

Blockchain domain name provider Unstoppable Domains is integrating with privacy-oriented web browser Brave to provide native browser support for “.crypto” domains.

Unstoppable Domains builds domain names on blockchains, meaning that each domain name is a non-fungible token (NFT) stored inside the user’s cryptocurrency wallet instead of within a traditional, centralized registrar like GoDaddy.

Practically, this means Brave users will be able to navigate to 30,000 decentralized websites and 700,000 blockchain domain names registered with Unstoppable Domains, drastically expanding access to Web 3.0.

Brave Is Creating a Privacy-Focused Google Competitor Brave has acquired Tailcat, part of the company's plan to create a private search engine that can compete with Google. "The Hash" panel discusses current user experience on privacy-focused browsers and the outlook for privacy-centered products. “The entire domain name system is a suite of smart contracts living on the blockchain, which means that when a browser like Brave wants to go and resolve a website, instead of going and pinging the DNS servers, they go and read the blockchain directly,” said Unstoppable Domain co-founder Brad Kam. “That’s how they find the record. And so what is unique and different here is really around custody and ownership.”
