ENS - new contact AMA

Key changes / features:

  • ENS names will need to pay rent. Original approach was to just require locking up a deposit while the name was held, but this was deemed not sufficient to discourage squatting.
  • integration with existing TLDs. ie) if you own an existing domain, you can claim the same domain on ENS by providing cryptographic proof of ownership.
  • new names available by auction

Some things to keep in mind for SAFE name registration…
