Blockchain brand protection services from EnCirca include registration, custody, and integration services for handshake domains. This includes 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.
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. The process to acquire a NFT top-level domain, such as on Handshake is based on the availability of the desired string.
EnCirca maintains blockchain nodes and multi-sig hot/cold wallets to streamline acquisition, custody services and crypto-currency payments for second-level domains as well.
EnCirca supports 1,400 handshake TLDs for second level registrations. There are no gas or custody fees.Register Second Level Domains
