The Ethereum Name Services, which is closely affiliated with the Ethereum Foundation, enables users to acquire domain names on the world's second-largest blockchain. Each domain is offered for sale as an NFT.

The service has grown in popularity as a result of renowned people adding ENS domain names to their Twitter identities.


Shopify CEO Tobias Lütke, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and other notables are on their list. Budweiser, another popular beer brand, obtained its own ENS domain name in August.


The number of registrations on Ethereum Name Services has increased by 112% in the last two weeks.
