Pseudonymous developer Shytoshi Kusama has just unveiled plans to launch a special Top-Level Domain (TLD), the last part of a web address after the dot, for the Shiba Inu (SHIB) ecosystem.
In a series of tweets on social media platform X, Kusama says domains are significant as the identity layer of the internet.
“For 40 years, they have made using the Internet easier for all. If you type shib.io into your browser, you go to the Shib website.
Domains allow us to build an identity layer on Shib that works across the Internet, without the need for special software. No wallets. No plugins. No extensions. You type it into a browser and it works, on your computer, on your phone; right out of the box.”
The developer says the project is now working with internet domain player D3 to enable the use of domain names with the .shib extension.
“We’re working with D3inc to Invade The Internet by applying for the .shib TLD. This will allow us to tap into infrastructure that is used by 5.3 BILLION people worldwide. Over the last year the Internet gained 198 million new users, the entire crypto market only has 425 million users.”
Kusama says the initiative will allow users of the dog-themed meme token to use a .shib domain for websites, blogs, online stores, emails, digital asset transactions, usernames on web3 platforms and online identity verification.
“You already use domains all over Web3. You use it to access our ecosystem, you use it to access the exchanges where you buy and sell SHIB, LEASH and BONE, you use it to open X to read this tweet. Now imagine if those domains ended in .shib.
Let’s revolutionize how the world sees digital identity, and Invade The Internet with .shib”
