✨ Welcome Crypto Explorers ✨

In today's tutorial, we will be exploring one of the ways to own your identity on the decentralized web.

An ENS name is your username for the decentralized web that can be used to login across many different blockchain and web3 services. Once you set up your ENS name, you can use it as a website address, your identity, wallet/bank, and more!

Let's get started!

Part One: How to register an ENS name

Once you learn this skill you will have your very own .eth name!

1. Go to the ENS Domains Website

2. Navigate to the ENS Manager by clicking on Launch App in the top right

3. Search for your desired .ETH name

  • Type into the "Search Names" field and click "Search"
  • Click on the .ETH domain you want to register if it is available

4. Select your time interval

  • You can select how many years to register and pay for the annual fees upfront with the "+" and "-" buttons.
  • Remember to have enough ETH in your wallet to pay for the full cost of the registration (including gas fees!)

5. Start the registration process

  • Click the blue “Request To Register” button on the bottom right. A box should pop up from MetaMask asking you to confirm the transaction. Click the “Confirm” button to confirm it.
  • It will take about a minute for the transaction to confirm.

6. Wait

  • Do not close your browser during this process.

7. Finish registration

  • Once your wait time is over, orange text will appear that says “Click register to move to the 3rd step.” Click the blue next to it that says “Register.”
  • Once the transaction confirms you can now set the reverse ENS record.

Part Two: How to set your reverse ENS record

Once you learn this skill, you'll be able to set your ERC-20 wallet address to your new .eth address. If your Ethereum account has a reverse record, Etherscan will display the ENS name instead of the 0x address you specified.

1. Get an ENS name in the ENS Manager App

  • See the previous steps in part one of the tutorial.

2. Go to My Account in the ENS Manager, click "Reverse record: not set", select the ENS name you want for your reverse record and submit a transaction to save.

Part Two Video Walkthrough: https://bit.ly/PartTwoENSDomains

You have now registered your own ENS name and applications like Etherscan will now be able to recognize your ENS name instead of showing your wallet address after setting your ENS reverse record.
