What makes .luxe different?
.luxe has been designed to support the most advanced blockchain platform, Ethereum – to deliver your customers more functionality, greater ease-of-use:
easy-to-generate blockchain secured addresses to support their new decentralized applications (DApps)
memorable blockchain secured addresses through which to operate their business more securely
For crypto holders:
easy-to-remember public key addresses for their crypto-wallets making the transfer of tokens significantly easier
Blockchain encryption with greater ease-of-use:
no more clunky 40 character hashes
As importantly, .luxe names can also resolve through the Internet for traditional web address and email functionality.
What’s the current market for blockchain enabled domains?
Outside of the $300 billion crypto currency market, blockchain is already used for data storage, financial transactions, proof of ownership, security and privacy with many more applications both identified and yet to be imagined.
There is already significant interest in blockchain enabled names:
Nearly 300,000 registrations to date in the non ICANN authorized .eth zone
Over $28 million USD in .eth domain registrations since May 2017
.eth holders to be offered a Limited Registration Period to claim their matching name
Growth of Wallets
All running off difficult to use 40 character hash based identifiers
Who is a .luxe web address for?
Users who believe that quality, innovation, and security on the internet should go hand-in-hand
Innovators, blockchain entrepreneurs and developers
Crypto wallet holders
Investors and traditional web users
Existing .eth domain holders
Exchanges – including anyone who wishes to conduct a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) transaction
Brands who wish to secure their trademarks
How does a .luxe name work?
.luxe names run on the DNS like traditional domains for website, email, blog usage.
The only difference…users can also blockchain enable their .luxe names and associate them to their Ethereum based products of choice for additional convenience and functionality:
As a wallet address:
Step one: The customer buys their .luxe name: eg. helen.luxe
Step two: The customer securely associates their name to their existing 40 character wallet address (0x466f6de23…)
Result: the customer can now send and receive tokens into their wallet by simply using their helen.luxe address
As an Internet address for their decentralized app:
Step one: The customer buys their .luxe name: e.g. safestore.luxe
Step two: The customer associates the existing 40 character hash of their decentralized app 0x396bf12efd0a…
Result: the customer now has an easy human readable identifier for their decentralized app that can also resolve through the DNS
In fact, the registrant can associate their .luxe name to whatever they want… smart contracts, secure servers, etc. etc...
Why is enabling blockchain for my .luxe web address important?
