Mr Brantly Millegan (Ethereum Name Service (ENS))


The open source project Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is the leading blockchain-based naming infrastructure project. Managed by a small non-profit with support of the Ethereum Foundation, today we provide naming mostly for the cryptocurrency wallet naming space (we have around 50 wallets signed up) and the emerging decentralized (IPFS-based) web (native integration in Opera, a few blockchain-focused mobile browsers, and others via extension).

But we're also doing research on using blockchain technology to serve the existing DNS tech stack, as well as various projects with EnCirca, .KRED, .ART, and others in the DNS space.

This presentation will be a quick overview of how our system works, how it serves the DNS namespace (including how we've integrated that namespace for use on our system), and our ideas of how it can complement the existing DNS.
