.ART domain: giving crypto a creative touch
More and more people are investing in cryptocurrencies or are interested in new media such as NFTs. But did you know that .ART domains can be used as a cool name for digital art portfolios and as a crypto address?
The crypto world has inspired artists to create futuristic and exciting artworks that seek to explore the world of the crypto/blockchain movement. Back in September 2020, Christie’s auction house announced the sale of a digital portrait of the Bitcoin code for more than $130,000. It was the first time a non-fungible token was auctioned at one of the major auction houses for traditional art.
Meanwhile, it doesn’t matter whether you create physical or digital art, one thing is undeniable: with the emergence of new media such as NFTs, VR and other digital initiatives, the need for new creative tools to promote and generate revenue is steadily growing.
With all these developments and more to come, it is obvious that crypto needed some tools to spice up its tech background and move into the creative space. The team behind .ART domains has been closely watching the industry and recently announced the possibility of registering your .ART name on Ethereum name service (ENS), and having a neat and memorable cryptocurrency wallet address as a result.
You can now send crypto directly to registered domains using .ART wallets. Instead of typing out an incredibly long crypto address, you have the option to simply type in an easy-to-remember domain like annieswallet.art!
As a result, a .ART domain can serve both as a catchy name for an artist’s digital portfolio and a crypto address. There is no need to separate artistic and commercial anymore: all you need is one .ART domain to protect your IP rights online by securing your own digital space and owning all the data on it, showcasing art, promoting it and generating revenue from it.
What are the benefits of ENS integration with .ART domains?
Security. ENS is built on smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain, meaning it doesn’t suffer from certain insecurities of the DNS system. You can be confident that the names you enter work the way their owner intended.
Concision. .ART domains are naturally easier to remember, giving crypto exchanges human-readable names.
Error-proof. Imagine you get one symbol in your wallet address wrong – not hard when they come as 26-35 alphanumeric characters! With a .ART domain, this would never happen, insuring against erroneous transfers.
Marketing. If you are using your crypto wallet to collect or exchange NFTs, what better way is there to advertise that than a .ART domain name? In the age of brand battles won by storytelling, naming is king.

A lot of institutions and personalities in the NFT art communities have already found their home under the .ART umbrella:

On Async Art, creators can add layers to their artwork, making ‘master’ and ‘layers’ NFTs. Each master is made up of various layers that exist as NFTs independently from each other and can be altered by whoever owns the layer. Async Art also released Async Music, giving music the ability to change its composition and tracks to contain many unique combinations of sounds.

Similar to the physical world, burning a token on the blockchain results in it being removed from circulation, i.e. destroying the NFT permanently. Playing with the lack of boundaries and the fluid nature of the virtual space, Pak recreates the cycle of life, inviting people to “Burn art to get ashes to get art to burn art.”
