Nimiq is one of the founding members of the Wallet Alliance - a group of leading wallets who are setting a new standard username for peer-to-peer crypto transfers using Unstoppable Domains’ .wallet NFT Domains
28 Dec 2021
Nimiq is happy to announce support for blockchain domain names powered by Unstoppable Domains. With this new partnership, Nimiq wallet users can send and receive crypto to user-friendly domain names such as ‘yourname.wallet’. Our goal with this step is bringing us closer to widespread adoption by lowering entry barriers to the crypto space and making it more accessible for all humans alike.
Unstoppable Domains focuses on building NFT Domains. NFT Domains are web extensions (just like ‘.com’) launched as smart contracts on public blockchains. They are built on the idea of a decentralized internet, allowing users to be the sole owner of their domain with tags like .crypto, .wallet, and .nft.
Because your NFT Domain is an asset in the blockchain, it can be stored in your crypto wallet. This self-custodial aspect of NFT Domains gives them advantages over your common .com domains, for example:
At Nimiq we believe in making instant digital payments simple and accessible for users of all levels. It is for this reason that we are proud to be collaborating with Unstoppable Domains as a founding member of The .Wallet Alliance - an alliance of 24+ wallets - to standardize wallet usernames starting with Unstoppable Domain’s .wallet nft domains.
Today, we are excited to launch a giveaway to boost the adoption of Unstoppable Domains in our community. The Nimiq wallet offers support for native resolution of Unstoppable Domains as part of our commitment to making crypto transactions easier for everyone.
To get started you need to first secure your unstoppable domain here!
Once you have your favorite domain secured, you can configure your address in the Unstoppable Domains Dashboard. Over 275 cryptocurrencies are supported, including Nimiq.
Once you have your address configured in your domain, you can use it directly in the Nimiq Wallet where you would use your Nimiq Address.

By creating a new standard for simple usernames that works across all wallets globally we’re taking one step further to making peer-to-peer wallet transactions simpler, safer and a new global standard. We’re excited to work with this alliance to make crypto transactions an everyday reality for millions, then billions of people.

Pura Vida, and happy holiday to everyone!
