.bit in our eyes

1 .bit is NOT a domain.

2 .bit is a DID (Decentralized Identity).

3 .bit is a self-sovereign data container.

4 .bit serves the entire Web3.0 ecosystems rather than one specific public chain.

5 .bit is a community.

Roadmap 2022

What we have achieved so far:

  • integrated with public chains such as Ethereum, Tron, BSC, Polygon, Mixin;
  • integrated with dozens of leading wallets such as TokenPocket, imToken, MathWallet, Huobi Wallet;
  • integrated with more than 40 DApps such as Jike App, NFTGo, NFTSCAN, WePiggy;
  • released .bit Alias;
  • launched the marketplace for .bit;
  • integrated with IPFS;
  • cooperated with many third-party registrars;
  • more than 60k registered accounts.

New functions and features that will be launched in 2022:

  • Multi-chain: .bit will integrate with more popular public chains, including but not limited to Bitcoin, Polkadot and Solana.
  • Multi-language: .bit will support registration in any language.
  • .bit Alias: Users can assign one .bit alias for each popular public chain contract address or ordinary address. This will effectively enhance the security in Web3.0.
  • Sub-accounts: A .bit account is able to create countless sub-accounts at a low cost. The decentralized and low-cost sub-accounts will serve as an efficient management tool for DAO.
  • Newly-designed .bit data management tool: Allow users to manage their data conveniently and efficiently. Also, developers can have write access to .bit if authorized by users.
  • Establishing a system of registrars with global coverage.
  • Release more accounts for registration. Release previously reserved accounts.

Release more accounts for registration

Plan for accounts releasing:

Parameters for each release:

Clarifications:

  1. Like before, which account names are available is randomly decided by the name themselves. If you want to know whether your favored account name is registrable, you can get the answer by calculating with the above algorithm and parameters.
  2. The registration is fair as the contract is impartial. The accounts that are not yet released for registration are not in the possession of or reserved for anyone in the .bit team. We promise that .bit team cannot register those accounts earlier than any other users. Not releasing all accounts does not help boosting the number of registration, but we still have to do it in pursuit of fairness.
