Ethereum Name Service (ENS) experienced a highly successful year in 2022, with over 80% of the total ENS domains created since its inception being registered during that year, despite the challenging market conditions for cryptocurrencies.
According to data from Dune, as of January 2nd, ENS had approximately 2.82 million names registered and 631,393 owners of ENS domains. It also saw the most ENS registrations of the year, with 459,054 domains registered.
Additionally, May 2022 was a successful month for ENS, with many .eth domain registrations likely being influenced by the low gas fees on the Ethereum network at the time. The data shows that it recorded about 64,594 new addresses in May.
Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is a decentralized database that enables users to register and manage domain names on the Ethereum blockchain using the ENS token. The token is used for transferring ownership of these domains and for payment when registering and managing domain names.
To register a domain name with ENS, users need to send a certain amount of Ether (ETH) to an address provided by ENS. This ETH will cover the transaction fees and other costs associated with registering the domain name.
To transfer ownership of an ENS domain name, the current owner will need to send a certain amount of ENS tokens along with information about the new owner, like their address and signature. It can be done through exchanges or wallets that support ERC-20 tokens, like MyEtherWallet.
