Crypto enthusiasts, you deserve a safe and easy way to send your cryptocurrencies and NFTs to everyone in the DeFi ecosystem.
We’re happy to announce we’ve added Unstoppable Domains support to our wallet to provide you the ability to send and receive crypto from Web3 domains such as .crypto, .nft, .bitcoin, and more!
We partnered with Unstoppable Domains to provide you with the ability to send to crypto addresses that will replace the bulky, alphanumeric crypto addresses you used in the past. With this integration, Aurox Wallet users can send and receive crypto using Unstoppable Domains and users can also view their Unstoppable domain handles within their Aurox Wallet.
Who is Unstoppable Domains?
Unstoppable Domains is a company that connects Web2 to Web3 using Web3 domain names. Nearly 3 million domains have been registered to date that can be used across more than 600 app, game and metaverse integrations.
Unstoppable Domains allows you to register unique Web3 domains that you can use across hundreds of Web3 applications. Instead of telling your friends to send crypto to a long numeric phrase, you can have them send it to YourNameHere.crypto or YourNameHere.nft.
The Benefits of Unstoppable Domains:
- One Name Across Web3: Unstoppable Domains allows you to curate and own a unique digital identity across Web3.
- Low Cost and Lifetime Ownership: Once you buy an Unstoppable domain, you own it for life. Unlike traditional domains on the web that you rent, Unstoppable Domains allows you to own your .crypto or .nft name so you have full control of your digital identity and datai. Easy peasy, and much safer for your crypto.
Why copy-pasting your wallet address can get you scammed
Blockchain-generated wallet addresses can feel impossible to remember, so it’s no wonder most people prefer to copy-paste their wallet addresses using the clipboard function.
They’re using this function to save their address on their computer or send their wallet address to others on Telegram, Facebook or Whatsapp chat whenever they’re requesting payments.
However, copy-pasting your crypto addresses on your clipboard is not a great idea. It comes with a huge security flaw not many users are even aware of:
Cybercriminals are using more and more Clipboard Hijacking Malware to monitor your clipboards and replace your copied text with the attacker’s chosen address. Essentially, they’re sending crypto to their own wallets.
This change is done in a fraction of a second. Because their original address is too complex, most users don’t notice they’ve been hijacked until it’s too late.
The worst part?
These scammers don’t even have to be particularly good at hacking or coding malware.
There are several varieties of clipboard hijacking software freely available online.
Aurox Wallet is Unstoppable
Just like anything in Web3, your identity is completely decentralized, which means personal data associated with your Unstoppable Domains name will not be publicly known.
Unstoppable Domains also makes it easier to remember your crypto wallet address at all times — saving you time, giving you more control over your accounts, and helping you keep your crypto address safe from scammers.
Over the next few months, we’ll be working closely with Unstoppable Domains to increase the user experience within our wallet. We’re excited to take this first step to a safer, and easier Web3 experience.
