How to mint DNS+ENS
Minting is the foundational process for generating a new non-fungible token (NFT). By definition, an NFT is a unique digital asset that signifies the ownership of an individual item or entity, which can range from artwork, collectibles, to domain names.
The following guide outlines the steps to mint a .art domain name using ENS (Ethereum Name Service) on the platform protocol.art:
Start by visiting the website protocol.art. From the main menu, connect your wallet to enable digital transactions on the platform.
After connecting your wallet, proceed to the search box to identify your desired domain name. The availability of the domain name will be color-coded: "available" names are highlighted in green, while those already owned will show the owner's address. You can mint emoji, emoji combinations with Latin letters (A-Z), digits (0-9), and hyphens (-) to form unique ENS domain names.
Click on your chosen name. A new window will appear, presenting options to decide the length of your domain ownership and the price you're willing to pay. Note that your domain registration is time-bound and will require periodic renewal.
After confirming your selections, click on the "Register" button. This action will link you to your connected wallet where you must approve the transaction.
Congratulations! With the transaction approved, you are now the proud owner of a unique .art domain. Enjoy your digital real estate! 🎉
