Instead, they store - Crypto currency addresses - IPFS content hashes A domain can only be held by one private key. Look for more browsers' support. #### Places for searching for decentralized websites - [Blockscan](https://blockscan.com/) - [Bitsear.ch](https://bitsear.ch/) #### Chat Protocol - P2P protocol - How do direct messages work - Channels - Announcements - Public - Private ## My Testlog #### 2020/07/08 You would buy a domain with USD on Unstoppable Domains. - I applied a bigannouncement.crypto for free because during HackFS - I needed to register on Unstoppable Domains website with my email, and I did - After the UD team confirmed, I visited the site and `Claim` that domain. It sent me a code, and I put the code on the website - Then I have access to connect to Metamask to sign this domain to my Eth address - It's pending. It says it might need up to 72 hours to confirm. #### Older I bought .eth domain with Ether directly without any connection to my email or other identities. - [ ] TODO: Add notes from bigannouncement's hacklog 2020/07/08
