ZetaChain’s mission is to serve as a platform for universal access, simplicity, and utility across any blockchain. Users need access to their digital assets in one place, no matter what blockchain they’re on. ZetaChain provides an access point for all of Web3. In line with this mission, we’re excited to announce an important development today — the launch of Zeta Name Service.

Solving fragmented web3 identity with SPACE ID

The introduction of Zeta Name Service with our partner SPACE ID, a leading universal domain name service network, allows anyone to mint a domain and add an identity to his ZetaChain wallet. This is an important step in our journey to enable users to manage their entire on-chain identity and access all assets from one place using ZetaChain.

Today, Web3 identity is splintered across many blockchains. Minting a .zeta Name Service NFT enables your identity to span all of Web3, from EVM chains to BSC, Cosmos and even eventually non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin. That opens new opportunities for developers to build robust and intelligent identity services.

Unlocking cross-chain domains

Since ZetaChain uses cross-chain messaging, users can transfer NFTs including .zeta Name Service across multiple chains, opening up new possibilities and usages that go beyond the limitations of NFTs today. Learn more about how to create NFT smart contracts and frontend dApps here.

Omnichain Smart Contracts can manage native assets on all chains from one place, which takes things to the next level. Eventually, when they support NFTs (in addition to fungible tokens today), Omnichain Smart Contracts will enable new groundbreaking omnichain dApps on SPACE ID’s infrastructure with an ability to manage NFTs across all supported chains from one place on ZetaChain.

This powerful development opportunity opens up new possibilities for DeFi, gaming, SocialFi, and other dApps in Web3. Visit the ZetaDocs to learn more about Omnichain Smart Contracts here.

A look forward

The future of crypto is about forging connections and removing friction from fragmentation. We’re incredibly excited to work with SPACE ID to make identity and NFTs operate seamlessly across all of Web3.

Grabbing a .zeta domain name will unlock a unique quest part of a new BTC drop campaign to the ZetaChain community — you can find more details on the BTC Halving Claim Campaign page hosted by Galxe and running through the whole month of April.
