Unstoppable Domains Seeks ‘.blockchain’ Registration

Unstoppable Domains and Blockchain.com have formed a partnership to introduce and commercialize a new Web3 domain system under the name “.blockchain”. This new domain name system (DNS) aims to facilitate a streamlined digital identity solution for the broader public. The companies have collaborated to register the .blockchain domain with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), an organization internationally recognized for its role in managing IP addresses and domain names.

In their announcement, it was revealed that this endeavor will be part of ICANN’s upcoming six-year registration program. The program is highly anticipated and is scheduled to commence next year. ICANN plans to roll out new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) by the second quarter of 2026. Thus, Unstoppable Domains and Blockchain.com have roughly a year to get everything in order for their application deadline.

Blockchain.com has a solid foundation to support this initiative, having amassed a user base of 40 million verified accounts and facilitated over 90 million cryptocurrency wallets. The company has handled a staggering $1.2 trillion in cryptocurrency transactions throughout its operation. With such a robust infrastructure, the partnership is set to leverage Blockchain.com’s extensive experience and reach.

Sandy Carter, the Chief Operating Officer of Unstoppable Domains, expressed immense enthusiasm regarding the collaboration. According to her, the partnership is set to drive forward the adoption of Web3 by providing an accessible and cost-effective digital identity solution aimed at mainstream users. She emphasized that this initiative is well-aligned with their vision of a more user-friendly crypto experience.

Lane Kasselman, President of Blockchain.com, shared Carter’s positive outlook. He highlighted the collaborative efforts as a testament to their commitment to creating a user-centric web experience. Kasselman expressed eagerness to work with ICANN to bring their collective vision to fruition, signifying the strategic importance of this partnership for both organizations.

Once ICANN gives the green light, users across the globe will gain the ability to register .blockchain domains, which can be integrated into the existing Web2 ecosystem. This expansion will further enable Unstoppable Domains to offer tailored domain names for individual users, brands, and businesses, marking a significant step toward broader Web3 adoption.

In another related development, the ApeCoin community recently approved a proposal to register “.APE” as a new top-level domain (TLD) under ICANN. The proposal received overwhelming support, with 91.68% voting in favor. The initiative, led by D3, will take about a year to prepare and submit, aiming to expand the DNS landscape further.

Fred Hsu, co-founder and CEO of D3, elaborated on their plans. According to him, the DNS domains that D3 offers and intends to register with ICANN are designed to be interoperable. This means they will be compatible across different web versions, including Web1 (email/web), Web2 (apps/social), and Web3, thus bridging the gap between various internet generations and broadening the scope of domain usability.
