Unstoppable Domains Launches Encrypted Messaging for Enhanced Web3 Communication

Unstoppable Domains rolls out an encrypted messaging feature for its Web3 domains. The new service aims to extend the utility of Web3 domains and foster secure, decentralized communications.

Unstoppable Domains Introduces Encrypted Messaging for Web3 Domains

Unstoppable Domains, known for its Web3 domain services, has taken another significant step in enhancing its functionality by introducing an encrypted messaging feature.

Built to be compatible with the Extensible Message Transport Protocol (XMTP), Unstoppable Messaging enables users of Web3 domains to communicate securely on XMTP-enabled platforms like Lens and Coinbase Wallet.

Senior Director of Engineering and Product at Unstoppable, Lisa DeLuca, sees this as an extension of the domain's functionality. It goes beyond the single sign-on (SSO) services for Ethereum and Polygon applications that were introduced in January 2022. She highlights the company's commitment to "utility over hype."

Unstoppable Messaging isn't just for tech-savvy users; it's useful for everyday tasks such as making plans or checking in with contacts. DeLuca emphasized its broad usability, including negotiating NFT trades or domain purchases.

Unlike traditional Web2 messaging platforms, Unstoppable Messaging allows you to interact without revealing your phone number or email. It also includes blocking features and notification management. DeLuca sees it as an instrumental tool in building communities, particularly around NFT projects.

While the primary focus remains on consumer messaging, there are plans to expand the service to allow decentralized apps and businesses to send mass messages via Push Protocol. The timeline for this is not yet confirmed.

Unstoppable Domains continues to push the boundaries of what a Web3 domain can offer. With the addition of encrypted messaging, it is setting the stage for more secure and versatile decentralized communication, answering to community calls for more functional and user-friendly Web3 services.
