Punk Domains, a permissionless decentralized domain name service, has partnered with the Flare blockchain to enable thousands of registrations for two newly-launched domain extensions: .SGB (Songbird Domains) and .FLR (flr.domains). Users can now use their web3 domains as social media handles, attach data to them, and simplify the process of sending tokens.
The Punk Domains team announced that the domains can represent personal usernames, profiles, and identities in the fast-growing web3 world. The team also plans to integrate the domains into the Bifrost wallet, which will allow Flare users to mint their domains and transfer funds more easily.
The partnership also means that the Flare Time Series Oracle (FTSO) will be integrated to ensure fixed domain pricing regardless of SGB and FLR price deviations. Punk Domains’ co-founders Techie.flr and Tekr.flr said: “When we launched our protocol on Songbird, the community welcomed us warmly and with great excitement. Their support touched us deeply and inspired us to create even more tools in this ecosystem. We’re eagerly looking forward to what lies ahead as we continue building on Flare and Songbird.”
Before the launching of .SGB and .FLR, Punk Domains created a number of domain services, including .smol in the Arbitrum-based Smolverse and .klima domains alongside klimaDAO. They also created an open-source decentralized social network built on Songbird, SGB Chat.
Flare has been making great progress, with its API Portal launching on the Google Cloud Marketplace in May. This means that developers can access blockchain data from Flare’s nodes and Connected Chain nodes to perform easy transactions and read up-to-date states.
Now, with the Punk Domains partnership, users can easily access a wide range of DeFi tools, token swaps, and other DeFi features on the web3 platform.
