0. Whatโ€™s ENS in the first place?

๐Ÿ๏ธ The Ethereum Name Service, or ENS, is a distributed technology based on the Ethereum blockchain that provides an elegant solution to long and confusing crypto addresses: one URL, just like a website name or email, that represents a crypto address.

ENS maps the long public address crypto users are familiar with and replaces it with a simple name that is easy to read and easy to remember. Something cumbersome like, โ€œ0xDC25EF3F5B8A186998338A2ADA83795FBA2D695Eโ€ becomes as simple as โ€œAlice.eth.โ€

Quoted from the following article from Blockworks

1. Access ens.domains (ENS official website)


2. Click โ€œGo to appโ€


3. Connect your wallet to the website on Ethereum Mainnet.

4. Search and find an ENS domain you want. (It should be "Available").

You cannot get unavailable domains. They are already owned by others.

5. Decide the registration period(How many years you want to keep the domain), and click โ€œRequest to Registerโ€

6. Confirm the transaction

7. From "My Account", set the ENS domain you got as your Primary ENS Name.

Congrats! Now you are ready to play Phi!
