.WS, the country code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD) for Samoa, proudly announces its partnership with WebUnited as the first-ever registry to fully mirror their TLD on-chain. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in integrating traditional domain services with the Blockchain technology.
The integration of WebUnited as a backend provider will enable the .WS TLD to exist on the Blockchain while conserving traditional internet features and DNS resolution. The transition to a Web3-enabled backend amplifies traditional domain name use cases and capabilities. The .WS users can now look forward to amplified use cases, such as using their domains as crypto wallet addresses, a decentralized identity, and enabling full tokenization, instant transferability, and renting.
Lars Jensen, Co-CEO of WebUnited, expresses his enthusiasm: "Today marks an important moment in the domain industry. By partnering with .WS, we're not just breaking new ground but laying the foundations for a future where the internet's potential is fully realized. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to innovation and vision for a seamlessly integrated digital world."
