In partnership with Unstoppable Domains, Bitcoin.com is making it easier than ever to use cryptocurrencies as a payment method. Users of the multi-chain bitcoin.com wallet can now send cryptocurrency to the full range of domains offered by blockchain-based domain providers. This means, for example, that people can now send cryptocurrency to human-readable addresses such as “elizabeth.crypto” rather than the long and complex wallet addresses that are native to the bitcoin protocol (e.g., bc1qar0srr7xfkvy5l643lydnw9re59gtzzwf5mdq) It means that bitcoins can be sent to.
“Cryptocurrencies are a powerful force creating economic freedom in the world, but frankly adoption is being hampered by poor user experience – and the use of industry standards for complex wallet addresses is an important pain point,” said said Bitcoin.com CEO Dennis Jarvis.” Unstoppable Domains’ human-readable addresses are a big step in the right direction, which is why we are proud to support them with our fully self-sufficient wallet.”
Unstoppable Domains is one of the three largest global providers of blockchain-based domains, the other two being Ethereum Name Service (ENS) and Foundation for Interwallet Operability (FIO). All of these services are supported by supported by Bitcoin.com Wallet provides domain name extensions tied to the public blockchain rather than the traditional domain name system (DNS).
