Benefit of Testnets
Decentralised technologies are on course for disrupting the centralised order, Unstoppable Domains allow for the complete creation of a test domain with the only limitation being the domain begins with ‘udtestdev-‘ prefix
With new technology it requires testing and offering for early adopters easy access makes total sense in the age of the Cryptopticon. Unstoppable Domains are available for a one time payment and have a free option which just requires gas money
Creating a Test Domain
Test Domain Learning
Learning from the test domain, I can begin to see how Unstoppable domain functions, when going to create a test domain it would still charge the gas fee’s, according to metamask this was going to be about about $40. It allowed the ability to see how you purchase the domain from unstoppable, but it’s being created on chain through your own wallet. This is well designed to reduce the dependency on organisations like unstoppable, which they are happy to relinquish and promote digital autonomy. It’s advisable to avoid the test domains because of gas fee’s.
The is incoming innovation that will open up the use of unstoppable domains, with the development team currently testing the L2 network, when domains will be made available and having a domain that is your crypto wallet is just around the corner.
