Decentralized name services are simplifying access and functions in web3. Just like traditional domain name servers (DNS), decentralized name services provide human-readable names such as ‘alice.eth’ pointing to machine-readable identifier such as Ethereum addresses or addresses of different blockchains. Among the different name services, Ethereum Name Service (ENS) was the first decentralized name service on Ethereum, allowing users to link wallet addresses, social accounts or Web2 DNS to their ENS handles. On the other hand, Unstoppable Domains offers more variation of decentralized domains and their partnerships with numerous dApps increase utilities of their decentralized domains. Binance Name Service (BNS) aims to build a brand-new platform to link every user in the Web3 world so that BNB chain users can become the new growth engine of Web3, and beneficiaries. Decentralized name services are challenging traditional DNS in Web2 through innovative utilities and Web3 accessibilities.

The rise of various different decentralized name services on different decentralized networks like ENS, Unstoppable Domains, and BNS has led to fragmented user experiences and challenges in content interoperability. RSS3, as the largest Open Information indexer, aggregated these fragmented decentralized name services into one RSS3 Network, enabling seamless content access and sharing across platforms. This unified approach enhanced user experiences, simplifies developer integrations, and promotes a collaborative, interoperable Open Web ecosystem.
While the rise of decentralized name services like ENS, Unstoppable Domains, and BNS brings easier access to decentralized applications through human-readable domains, users and developers faced the challenge of navigating and integrating content across multiple decentralized networks because of the fragmented networks and numerous different decentralized name services.
In conclusion, RSS3's support for decentralized name services across different blockchains like ENS, Unstoppable Domains, and BNS showcased a mutually beneficial solution. It not only enhanced the user and developer experience but also realized the vision of a more unified and interoperable Open Web.
