DNS Creates A Decentralized Identity For Tezos Users And Enables A Linktree-Like Personal Page

DNS initially wanted to work on Ethereum identities, but soon found Tezos as a more interesting alternative.

“Tezos is just plain superior to Ethereum. We were surprised. It’s fast, it’s cheap, it’s green. It already does Proof of Stake. Stably. For a long time.”

DNS (Distributed Name System)

DNS (Distributed Name System) will allow Tezos users to create their own decentralized identity. Users will be able to link their on-chain identity to a web page (username.dns.tez), which can also be used as wallet address. You can use your DNS identity as your decentralized Linktree page, your business-card, your artist NFT showpage, or any way you see fit.

“DNS.xyz brings identity and community to the decentralized web. We’re starting with Tezos first: we want to give every Tezos user a personal website, a username.dns.tez, and a way to show their NFTs.”

The user interface of your DNS profile will be very similar to your basic centralized social media page. You can add your name (or alias, you decide how to call your profile), short bio, country, avatar, cover photos, etc.

All the info that you add is public. It’s up to you what you share, and it can be pseudonymous. Your DNS identity will be created around your wallet address, so whatever you do on-chain can be tracked to your DNS identity.

Getting started is easy, you simply log in with your wallet, and get a “link in bio” page (like Linktree), hosted on Web3 automatically. You can use it to show your links, and your HicEtNunc NFTs. 

DNS aims to enable you to use your DNS identity in dApps too.

“We’re also working with both IDX and SpruceID, to make sure that your profile data can be integrated in as many dApps as possible.”

DNS uses a W3C standard called “Decentralized Identities” (DIDs). Every user on DNS gets a DID, by logging in with their wallet. Being decentralized, means that info is stored immutable and trustless. And what’s unique about DNS is:

“there is no backend, so security and user trust is easy. DNS is using a combination of public, open standards: wallets to login and create a DID, Ceramic to store user data and websites, and IPFS to serve content.

It’s 100% decentralized: everything happens in your browser, talking directly to Ceramic, Textile, and IPFS. It’s very similar to how dapps such as ENS or MyEtherWallet work. And because it’s on IPFS, your data is public, and user-verifiable”

Why Tezos

DNS initially wanted to work on Ethereum identities, but soon found Tezos as a more interesting alternative.

“Tezos is just plain superior to Ethereum. We were surprised. It’s fast, it’s cheap, it’s green. It already does Proof of Stake. Stably. For a long time.”

The DNS team found it easier to develop smart contracts on Tezos than with Ethereums Solidity. And the Tezos’ FA2 standard:

“does everything that ERC-20, ERC-721, and ERC-1155 do. It’s less complex, consumes less gas, and much easier to design minting for”

The Tezos community was another important factor that made DNS move their focus to Tezos. Developers and artists have been extremely welcoming and supportive.

“It’s becoming the home to hackers and artists who want to try new things in crypto. Things that aren’t defi and gambling. It’s a place where tinkerers, creators and curious minded people can play. And it’s great! It’s where early adopters are. It’s where the energy from Bitcoin 2011 and Ethereum 2016 is.”

Early access testers

The DNS team is currently looking for early access testers. If people are interested in joining the private beta, they can join the DNS Discord here. https://discord.com/invite/utvp36axNx
