What is ENS

Ethereum Name Service (ENS), a decentralized domain name service based on Ethereum, officially landed on Ethereum on May 4, 2017. It provides a secure and decentralized way for users to register Ethereum domain names ending in .eth.

Specifically, ENS can replace the long and hard-to-remember Ethereum address starting with 0x into blocktempo.eth, btc.eth and other formats. There is a smart contract behind each top-level domain name (such as .eth), which contains the specified rules for subdomains.

In addition, ENS is built on the ERC721 protocol, which means that each ENS domain name is actually an NFT, so after the current registration is completed, it can be auctioned or transferred in NFT trading markets such as OpenSea.

Shopify hints at integrating MetaMask service

According to previous reports in the currency circle, Tobi reposted a video related to the Shopify platform on Twitter on the 9th. The film hinted that the MetaMask function will be integrated into the Shopify platform, and replied: probably nothing (in the currency circle usually said: possible What does it mean).
