How to Buy Crypto Domains

Welcome to this guide, where we’re going to look at how you can buy a .crypto domain and other variants such as .nft, .x, .bitcoin, .wallet and more.

We will cover step by step how you can buy and claim the domain with the extension of your choice. These domains are on the Ethereum network as an NFT (ERC-721), which makes it impossible for other users to register the same domain. The operation is very similar to normal domains, but these are on the Ethereum blockchain and can be sold or transferred between wallets.

The main use is to replace the name of the wallets and make them more understandable. However, they can also be used to make a domain in IPFS (Interplanetary File System). Thus domains are not dependent on institutions, and are decentralised and public to anyone once you buy them. In addition to being able to be transferred or sold as you can see in this guide.

To buy the domain we will use a wallet, in this case metamask as it is the most used in the Ethereum network. If you don’t know how it works, you can find a guide here so you don’t get lost in the tutorial.

Buying a Crypto domain from Unstoppable

To buy this type of domains we find different platforms such as Ethereum Name Servers (ENS) or Unstoppable. In this case, we will use unstoppable for this.

1. Go to unstoppabledomains.com and create an account.

2. We will choose a domain you want to buy with the extension of your choice. Please note that each extension has a different price.

3. Add the domain you want to your cart by clicking on Add to cart. Next, go to the top right corner and click on the cart.

4. Let’s go to the checkout.

5. You won’t be able to find many ways to pay, but you can use crypto.com to get a 10% discount on your first purchase. In case you don’t have an account with crypto.com, you can use the funds in your metamask wallet, or if you prefer with paypal or debit/credit card. Click on crypto.com Pay at the bottom. A QR code will appear, scan the QR code with your crypto.com app and make the payment.

6. There, now you have the domain purchased, and now we will see how to transfer it to your wallet.

Claiming the Unstoppable domain

Now that you have paid for your Unstoppable domain, it’s time to claim it with your MetaMask wallet.

1.  The first step we will do is click on the top left and then we will select my domains.

2. You won’t find many different alternatives to claim the domain, but in our case for this example we are going to claim it with ETH, as it is the most common. Always make sure you have enough ETH in your MetaMask wallet for the gas fee or transaction cost. Click on claim with ETH.

3. Click on send code by email.

4.We will go to your email and we will copy the code that we will receive to verify that we are the ones making the withdrawal. Next, we will paste it as it appears in the image.

5. Select the web wallet3.

6. Now, we must connect to MetaMask by clicking next and then connect.

7. Follow the instructions shown in the image.

8. Let’s sign the transaction in MetaMask.

9. The .Crypto claim process will now begin, so we will click on view domains.

10. Now, you will be able to see a pending claim. In a short time, when the transaction is completed we will see the manage button. Which will mean that we have the domain in our metamask wallet. And we can use it, or sell it on platforms like opensea as we have covered in this tutorial.

I hope this guide has helped you to buy your first .crypto domains or other .crypto domains. Remember that if you don’t have an account with binance, you can create one just below.
