take two: ethereum domain registrar introduces on testnet
An effort to create a decentralized domain registrar on top of ethereum is moving ahead, a month after its first launch was aborted.
The Ethereum Name Service (ENS), led by the Ethereum Foundation’s Alex Van de Sande and Nick Johnson, is aimed to create a means of registering ethereum-tied domains and then utilizing the network to auction off those domains.
The project initially launched in mid-March, but a pair of critical bugs forced the development team to pull back the app.
According to a new blog post, a reworked ENS registrar has been released on the Ropsten network, a testnet for ethereum apps.
The plan is to soft launch ENS in the weeks ahead, effectively stretching out the time in which domains become available.
