SAN FRANCISCO — 9.12.19 — Unstoppable Domains, a software company building domains on blockchains, today introduced its second installment of The Blockchain Domain Grant Program, leading into its third wave of potential applicants. For the latest round of grants, the Unstoppable Domains community selected Coinomi, the longest standing multi-asset wallet, CoinRequest, an adoption focused wallet simplifying day-to-day transactions, and Viewblock, a blockchain domain explorer.
In addition to providing grantees developer support, Unstoppable Domains will provide each winning company with a stipend from the $250,000 allocation pool.
Below is the complete list of grantees to date:
Grants range from $5,000 to $15,000 and any wallet with a great community, regardless of location, is encouraged to apply. Grantees are selected through a public poll, and Unstoppable Domains announces winners to the community on a regular, ongoing basis. Community members may vote for as many as ten wallets during each polling session.
Unstoppable Domains is a blockchain domain registry business that provides domains directly to consumers. To date, it has supplied more than 90,000 .zil domains to customers and companies.
Blockchain domains allow users to receive cryptocurrency payments to a human readable name, instead of long addresses. Users can attach all of their cryptocurrency addresses to a single .zil domain. When someone types yourname.zil into an integrated wallet, the wallet looks up that domain on the blockchain, finds the appropriate address, and sends. It’s that simple!
Blockchain domains are stored in a user’s wallet, just like a cryptocurrency. No third party can seize the domain. Users can point content stored on IPFS or other decentralized storage networks to their .zil domain, making a website takedown impossible. The combination of a blockchain domain and content stored on decentralized storage creates uncensorable websites.
