Names for blockchain, built on a powerful new platform.

Millions use blockchain today. But billions don’t. We’d love it if they did, so we want to make it more powerful and more personal.

We’ve built a powerful platform which connects blockchains in parallel for more features, power and scale, enabling a new class of blockchain applications with global scale.

And we use this platform to power easy names across blockchain, like the DNS does for the internet. Our dsDNS for blockchain, replaces confusing hash addresses with familiar names. And we’re building it with the inventor of the DNS.

We have a clear path to market adoption working with businesses to bring the benefits of blockchain to their customers. They’ll use our names and platform and help jumpstart our growth.  Join us!
