Sky Mavis Announces Ronin Name Service (RNS)
Sky Mavis has announced the Ronin Name Service (RNS), a system that simplifies sending and receiving transactions by making it possible for users to use a simple .ron name by paying a yearly renewal fee and an anti-squatting fee. Businesses, brands, and select users can already reserve their domain name, with a public sale planned sometime later this year.
Sky Mavis has officially announced the Ronin Name Service (RNS), through which users will easily be able to transact by making it possible to use readable names instead of sticking to standard long crypto addresses.
What is the Ronin Name Service (RNS)?
The Ronin Name Service is an upcoming naming system through which you’ll be able to reserve a domain name that is human readable, making it easier for others to send transactions to you, including both funds and NFTs. It provides users with the option to avoid using the complicated long crypto addresses in favor of a simple name that ends with .ron (e.g. yourname.ron), easily signifying that the address is on the Ronin Network.
By introducing this system, studio paves the way for a smoother onboarding experience for users new to the world of crypto. RNS will be integrated with Sky Mavis account services, the Ronin Wallet, the Mavis Market, Origins, Homeland, App.Axie, and more, making your .ron name your unique identity usable across the whole Ronin ecosystem.
How to Reserve your Ronin Domain Name
According to the announcement, businesses and brands have until October 26th to reserve their Ronin domain names by filling out a typeform linked through a Twitter thread and official blog post. It’s also stated that Mystic owners, certain content creators, collectors, and “other Sky Mavis community members” may also reserve one RNS name through a separate form “shared with them in their respective Discord channels,” with the team mentioning that the requested name should be related to your present Discord or Twitter/X identity.
Submitted names must be more than 3 characters long, and only alphanumeric characters are allowed (A-Z, 0-9). Certain names have been blacklisted to protect the community, while some have been protected for official partners and key community members, and there are also auctioned names which Sky Mavis has determined to be ones that will be in high demand. As such, the studio plans to host an auction for those names “as a means to generate revenue for RNS and reduce domain name squatting.” Regular names will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis through a yearly renewal fee and anti-squatting fee.
When will the Ronin Name Service (RNS) Launch?
There is no exact date as to when RNS will launch, but Sky Mavis has noted that a public sale is planned to take place sometime later this year, so you’ll want to stay tuned for more information to surface in the weeks ahead to stay in the loop for a chance at securing the name you’d like before others do.
