Tired of the centralized world? Welcome to the decentralized network on the blockchain, and enjoy true ownership with the 2 new dapps we’re going to introduce.
Here you can get an avatar for yourself and play freely in the decentralized, or truly own a domain that no one else could control!
The most basic digital asset that any virtual world can have and need are avatars, because they are the visual representation of your identity in the digital realm.
CryptoAvatars is a platform that allows avatar creators to mint single-edition Avatars. Each Avatar is tokenized as a unique non-fungible token (NFT) on the Ethereum blockchain and Matic Layer 2 providing long-lasting value to their work, since anyone can prove the authenticity and ownership of each avatar, making it easy to give credit to the original creator, regardless the Metaverse layer they are being used in.
The avatar tokens are ERC721 single edition tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. This platform allows you to showcase and sell Virtual Reality Avatars to collectors who are looking to own exclusive creations.
Avatar designers have to apply to the onboarding process to get whitelisted, so they can mint avatar using the contract.
After this, the designers will have access to mint and sell avatars on the platform.
Collectors can browse and buy avatars for cryptocurrencies, such as ETH.
Thanks to the manual onboarding process, you can be sure you are buying from the original creator and that you’ll have a functional avatar.
Once purchased, an avatars VRM file can be downloaded and implemented in their favorite supported platforms. Only the owners of the NFT will have access to download the file.
There is some cost producing and sustaining CryptoAvatars.io, such as IFPS storage system, onboarding new artists, producing educational content, updating systems, developing VRM file format, etc.
There are 2 revenue models for the project:
The platform will take a 10% commission fee for the first sale of any CryptoAvatar NFT.
The platform will keep producing avatars under the CryptoAvatars brand that will provide an income for the team.
In the future, the team may develop new types of contracts that will have different qualities and properties like an ERC1155.
There are already decentralized second-level domains on the internet. Ethereum Name Service allows users to register second-level domains under the .eth TLD. Another service like Unstoppable Domains (.crypto) is similar in theory.
Then what makes badass Domains different?
They are the first decentralized second-level domains anchored into a decentralized root zone. You don’t have to trust anyone and you own your .badass domain entirely. It uses a fork of ENS + the Handshake root zone and has transferred ownership to a burn address.
The registry for .badass names is deployed on Ethereum and unowned by anyone, so it is completely decentralized. The .badass top-level domain is also unowned by anyone on the Handshake root zone. We have created this site to make it easier to register and manage .badass names.
To view .badass websites, you will need to use a resolver that can resolve decentralized Handshake subdomains on ENS.
How to use it?
For example, if you want to register dapp.badass, you just search “dapp” and check the availability. It’s still available, so click it and you’ll see the price.
Registering a name requires you to complete 3 steps:
Request to register: Your wallet will open and you will be asked to confirm the first of two transactions required for registration. If the second transaction is not processed within 24 hours of the first, you will need to start again from step 1.
Wait for 1 minute: The waiting period is required to ensure another person hasn’t tried to register the same name and protect you after your request.
Complete Registration: Click ‘register’ and your wallet will re-open. Only after the 2nd transaction is confirmed you'll know if you got the name.
It’s quite easy. Would you register one for yourself when your favorite domain is still available?
