Web3 or Blockchain brand protection services from EnCirca include registration, custody, and integration services for decentralized or NFT domain names. This include both top-level domains (TLD) and second-level domains (SLD). None of these decentralized domains have the approval or regulatory oversight of ICANN and operate on alternative roots.
Considerations a brand owner should consider are: the brand’s blockchain/NFT/Metaverse strategies and whether a particular alternative root has taken steps to protect trademark rights or is prone to cybersquatting behavior.
There are several alternative roots supporting decentralized domain names. EnCirca recommends focusing on those gaining market traction including:
EnCirca maintains blockchain nodes and multi-sig hot and cold wallets to streamline acquisition, custody services and crypto-currency payments.
Handshake is the leading blockchain for top-level domains, although there are others, including NexBloc, Butterfly and Decentraweb. The best option could vary based on a client’s blockchain strategy.
The process to acquire a NFT top-level domain, such as on Handshake is based on the availability of the desired string.
EnCirca live chat and phone support will be closed for the day.
