The protocol recorded a turnover of 5,400 ETH, the “highest” month ever, according to the official Twitter account. ENS domain names are similar to the Internet’s Domain Name Service (DNS), but the project architecture adds an extensible naming system based on the Ethereum blockchain. Like DNS, Ethereum Name Service uses dot-separated hierarchical names (domains), and owners can take advantage of subdomains as well.

ENS names can also act as an Ethereum address and other cryptocurrency addresses, but instead of a long string of alphanumeric characters, it can be a machine-readable name like bob.eth. There are other blockchain projects that run name services on alternative chains such as Bonfida’s Solana Name Service and Terra once had a popular name service platform called TNS before Terra’s blockchain project imploded.
