Domain names in NFT, the new fad of crypto-speculators
Forget monkey paintings and other works of art. The new NFT and cryptocurrency enthusiast favorite now is buying… domain names.
Just as well known”. fr” or “. com”, there are “. eth”, addresses on the Ethereum blockchain. They don’t give access to websites but to cryptocurrency wallets. And these addresses, in the form of NFTs, have been the subject of increasing interest among crypto enthusiasts for several months. On April 28, the tokens of the “Bored Ape Yacht Club” collection – the most prominent – even recorded a lower volume of sales than those of the Ethereum Name Service on the OpenSea platform, according to the specialist site CoinDesk.
