Unstoppable Domains and Brave to Provide Millions of Users Access to the Decentralized Web

by May 13, 2021Announcements, Community, New Features

More than 30,000 decentralized websites and 700,000 blockchain domain names are now accessible by Brave users 

SAN FRANCISCO — May 13, 2021 — Blockchain domain name provider Unstoppable Domains today announced a collaboration with privacy-oriented web browser Brave that enables native browser support for the crypto domain name company. With the latest Brave browser update, Brave users on desktop and Android platforms have access to 30,000 decentralized websites and 700,000 blockchain domain names registered with Unstoppable Domains. 

“We are excited to work with Unstoppable Domains to enable decentralized DNS to a wider audience. At Brave, we see Web3 as a stepping stone to the future of digital ownership and decentralization,” said Brian Bondy, co-founder and CTO of Brave. “Unstoppable Domains was a natural fit for us, giving our users access to the decentralized web with the ability to visit any .crypto domain name. From registering .crypto domains to hosting an NFT art gallery, to sending and receiving crypto, the possibilities are limitless for Brave users.”

Launched in 2018, Unstoppable Domains provides .crypto and other top-level domain names to users with no renewal fees. When a user claims a domain, it is minted as an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain, granting the user full ownership and control. These .crypto domain names can point to content hosted on the Web, IPFS, or to cryptocurrency addresses, making it easy to send and receive over 70 different cryptocurrencies across 40+ cryptocurrency wallets and exchanges, including Coinbase Wallet, Litewallet, OKEx and MyEtherWallet.

“We’re on a mission to onboard three billion people to the decentralized web, and Brave is bringing us millions of people closer to that goal. We see Web3 as the future of the internet, where everyone has ownership and control of their own content,” said Matthew Gould, Co-Founder and CEO of Unstoppable Domains. “Brave’s integration with Unstoppable Domains means easy access to the decentralized internet without the hassle of browser extensions or custom DNS settings.”

Through this integration, the Brave browser is supporting a decentralized network not part of the traditional Domain Name Service (DNS), which is increasingly susceptible to hijacking, denial-of-service attacks, and phishing attacks. Unstoppable Domains allows users to build and host decentralized websites for a variety of use cases, including creating NFT galleries, video, and file sharing. 

With Brave, users can access some of the 30,000 decentralized websites that are now live, including:

  • Pomp.crypto, owned by Anthony Pompliano, host of The Pomp Podcast 
  • Brad.crypto, an NFT art gallery owned by Unstoppable Domains co-founder Brad Kam 
  • Kyber.crypto, which makes swapping digital assets and cryptocurrencies simple and efficient
  • vault74.crypto, decentralized chat with 4k streaming and file sharing 
  • voodfy.crypto, decentralized video hosting, and live streaming 
  • Switcheo.crypto, the world’s leading DEX platform
  • Tinyracing.crypto, completely decentralized game on InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)
  • Dtube.crypto, community-powered video sharing platform (a decentralized YouTube)
  • Huddle01.crypto, a decentralized video conferencing system designed for performance, affordability & security

To date, Unstoppable Domains has registered more than 700,000 blockchain domain names. To register for a .crypto domain, please visit www.unstoppabledomains.com. Brave recently passed 30 million monthly active users.
