PALM BEACH, FL – A company called “Unstoppable Domains”, a San Francisco-based startup which recently secured $4 million in venture capital funding says it is launching a new gTLD domain on the “.crypto” extension which is intended to provide users with “human-readable” wallet addresses, intended to simplify the process of sending and receiving funds.
Potentially even more interesting is the vision behind Unstoppable Domains and their desire is to create what they call an “uncensorable” Internet that exists beyond the reach of even the most repressive governments.
“…. users are able to build “uncensorable” websites on these blockchain-based domains, ensuring that the site’s owner is always in full control of the website’s content and that the domain cannot be seized or taken down by a third party.”
Their intent to fight back against censorship was originally announced in May of this year, when the company released news that it secured the $4 million in funding which it received from from Draper Associates and Boost VC. That investment was said to ensure the company would fulfill its mission of creating “Global free speech,” across the web.
“Imagine a digital world in which no website can ever be taken down—and no content can ever be censored—by anyone other than the web domain’s owner.”
“The user controls the domain with their private keys; No one other than the person holding those keys can take the domain away.”
