Domain Name Solutions for Blockchain Challenges
CryptoCurrency Wallet Addresses, Smart Contract Addresses and other resources within the blockchain world use long and complex addresses as reference.  Just like IP addresses are more complicated than a human should have to remember, domain names create the important shortcut reference to 'speed dial' those systems that you need to access.

The market for domain names with keywords related to Crytpocurrency and related Blockchain technologies is very robust, and the naming strategies of many of the top Blockchain innovation companies seem to favor a variety of TLD extentions.

This session will discuss:
  • The marketplace for Crypto and Blockchain domain names
  • The potential solutions that come from the existing namespace - and how it will and can evolve for use with Blockchain, IoT, and other technologies
  • The naming strategies of top Blockchain companies
