Web3 domain provider Unstoppable Domains is teaming up with Polygon Labs to roll out the .polygon domain, which can be used across decentralized applications on the Ethereum sidechain.
With the new domain Unstoppable users can expand their Polygon-based Web3 identity. Owners of .polygon domains can use them to send crypto and non-fungible tokens (NFT), build Polygon-based websites and access over 750 decentralized applications, games and metaverses.
Sandy Carter, chief operating officer and head of business development at Unstoppable Domains, said the move helps expand both ecosystems.
"People can create a digital identity that they fully own, interact with hundreds of integrated apps and signal their support for Polygon." Carter told CoinDesk.
Sanket Shah, vice president and head of growth at Polygon Labs, also noted that the partnership will help community members more easily interact with Polygon-based products and services.
Unstoppable has been forging partnerships to expand users’ access to Web3 and metaverse identity. In January, the company teamed up with metaverse platform Ready Player Me to create interoperable metaverse identities. In February, the company tapped crypto browser Opera to expand its domain offerings for its users.
