ArchID is a unique name service tailored for the Archway Network. It’s not just a naming service; it’s an identity. In the real world, while official sources might identify individuals using a social security number, people introduce themselves using their names. Similarly, within the Archway Network, ArchID allows users to identify themselves not with a long, unmemorable string but with a recognizable name. This name service bridges the gap between the traditional web (web2) and the decentralized web (web3), offering users a seamless experience.
Features and Benefits
1. More Than Just a Name
ArchID is not just a naming service; it’s an identity within the Archway Network. Instead of sharing a 46-character Archway address, users can share their ArchID domain, making them easily recognizable. It’s about choosing how one wishes to be identified within the Archway ecosystem.
2. Enhanced Security
One of the significant advantages of ArchID is the added layer of security it provides. Developers can be identified as the genuine owners of an application, reducing the chances of phishing campaigns and malicious applications trying to deceive users.
3. Web2 and Web3 Integration
ArchID bridges the gap between traditional web identities (web2) and decentralized web identities (web3). Users can add their social profiles, effectively tying together their web2 and web3 identities. Moreover, ArchID leverages updatable NFTs, allowing users to update, remove, edit, or reorganize their social profiles as they see fit.
For those ready to move beyond being just an address in the Archway Network, ArchID offers the opportunity to claim a unique identity. By connecting and registering a domain, users can establish their presence and become more than just an address in the network.
