Unlocking the Power of Games: A Domain Gold Rush

In the vibrant world of domain names, one word stands out with an undeniable aura of success: “Games.” This term is not just a simple word, but the centerpiece of a rapidly expanding industry and a constantly growing digital market. The top 5 public domain sales are a clear testament: a total of $2,375,000 with an impressive average of $475,000.

MathGames.com shines with an incredible transaction of $725,000, followed by GamesForGirls.com at $500,000, and BoardGames.com at $450,000. These figures are not just mere numbers, but testimonies to the intrinsic value and broad appeal that games hold in contemporary digital culture. CookingGames.com and FunGames.com, both sold for $350,000, complete this impressive list, offering a glimpse into the diverse range of platforms and gaming experiences sought after by users worldwide.

The statistical analysis of the most used words in public domain sales related to gaming further solidifies the dominant position of games in the digital landscape. The word “Games” stands in a position of prominence with an occurrence of 65.43%, a clear indicator of its vast appeal and relevance in the industry. While “Gaming” and “Esports” follow with 19.66% and 11.20% respectively, more specific terms like “RPG” (Role-Playing Game), “FPS” (First-Person Shooter), and “MMORPG” (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) round out the spectrum, albeit with smaller percentages, highlighting the depth and variety of the sector.

Domains that reference the world of games are not only exceptionally valuable, but they encapsulate the potential to revolutionize how we interact with the digital realm. Choosing a name that resonates with the universe of games is a bold step towards the future, a future where gaming, innovation, and adventure move hand in hand towards ever-expanding horizons.

Gaming: A 3 Billion Player Universe

The gaming universe is an ever-expanding galaxy, a digital ecosystem that welcomes over 3 billion enthusiasts from around the world. This number is not merely a statistic, but the heartbeat of a global community that lives, breathes, and evolves through the endless possibilities offered by video games.

In 2024, the video game market is set to reach stratospheric financial heights, with revenues exceeding $280 billion. But the growth doesn’t stop there: with an annual rate of 8.76% between 2024 and 2027, it’s expected that the market volume will surpass $350 billion by 2027. These figures are not just impressive; they are tangible proof of a booming sector, a testament to the passion and commitment that millions of people invest in this world.

YouTube, the reigning platform for video sharing, offers a privileged window into this universe with over 1.9 million channels dedicated to gaming. The top 10 gaming channels on YouTube together accumulate more than 18,000 videos, capturing the attention of over 480 million subscribers and totaling more than 120 billion views. These stellar numbers are not by chance, but the result of hours of gameplay, walkthroughs, reviews, and live streaming that create an increasingly cohesive and participatory community.

Twitch, on the other hand, represents the pulsating heart of video game streaming, with more than 2.75 million concurrent viewers and over 100,000 active channels at any given time. Here, more than 23 million streamers share their adventures across over 4,000 different games, creating a mosaic of stories, challenges, and triumphs that reflect the diversity and richness of the gaming ecosystem.

These data represent stories, passions, defeats, and victories. Behind every number are individuals and communities that dedicate time, energy, and creativity to elevate gaming to ever-greater heights. The business of gaming is not just an economic sector, but a constantly evolving universe that offers space for innovation, entertainment, and, above all, human connection.

The integration of Web3 into the world of gaming marks the dawn of an era where immersivity, digital ownership, and decentralized economies become the norm, transforming the way we interact, play, and value our virtual experiences.

Why do i Need a Wallet?

Freename domains are blockchain-based assets and would be minted and stored using a wallet. Users are required to mint and manage their domains using a Metamask or Coinbase-configured wallet. It must be a non-custodial wallet, meaning that one must own the private keys to the wallet in order to approve transactions via a signature.

To benefit from Freename Web 3 domains/TLDs, you must have a wallet. This is because Web 3 domains/TLDs are blockchain-based assets. Users can mint and manage their domains using Metamask or Coinbase-configured wallets.

Keep in mind that it must be a non-custodial wallet. You own the private keys to the wallet (in order to approve transactions via a signature).

Are the Domains Associated with ICANN?

ICANN does not manage freename.io domains. Freename.io believes their TLDs/domains must allow customers to operate independently. Freename.io wants to build a utility infrastructure, allowing customers to use their services for valuable and generative purposes. By leveraging blockchain technology, Freename Web 3 domains/TLDs have no centralized authority imposing rules and regulations.

What is a Wallet?

Every blockchain user requires a wallet in order to interact with the network. A wallet is essentially an account on the blockchain where transactions can be sent and received. It is also where one can store blockchain assets such as cryptocurrency or NFTs (non-fungible tokens). There is no personal information associated with a wallet and none is required to create one. A wallet consists of a public key and a private key. The public key can be safely shared with anyone who wishes to send assets to the corresponding wallet, however, the private key should not be shared and is the key to accessing the wallet in the event where access is lost or to create another instance.

A crypto wallet (cryptocurrency wallet) is software or hardware that enables users to store and use cryptocurrency. With cryptocurrencies, there isn’t any actual money to carry around in a wallet. They exist on the blockchain. Similarly to traditional bank transfers, crypto wallets enable users to send and receive cryptocurrencies, NFTs, etc.

A wallet consists of a public key and a private key. To receive assets, you share your public key associated with your wallet. You should NEVER share your private key.

How do i Claim my Earnings from Freename

ou can withdraw revenues generated passively through a cryptocurrency transfer. Connect your cryptocurrency wallet and, once your withdrawal request is confirmed, the desired amount is pulled from Freename’s reserves and conveniently delivered to you!

Claim your earnings by following these steps:

  1. Connect your cryptocurrency wallet to Freename.io
  2. Request a withdrawal
  3. Receive request confirmation
  4. Receive withdrawal directly to your wallet.

Can i Transfer Domains?

Yes. The domain is stored in your cryptocurrency wallet and can be transferred by you after you have minted it. Access your portfolio, select the TLD or Domain you wish to transfer and type the recipient’s address. Afterwards, you must paste the OTP code you received by mail to confirm the transaction. Keep in mind that currently, it is not possible to import the domain that has been transferred, but it will be possible soon!

Yes. Domains are transferable ONLY after a TLD/domain has been minted and stored in a user’s wallet.

To transfer the TLD (or domain), the user must:

  • Access their wallet
  • Select the item they want to transfer
  • Enter the recipient’s address.
  • Confirm the transaction by pasting the OTP received by email

In the future, Freename.io will support importing domains that have been transferred.

What about Trademarks?

Registering a trademark on your Freename Web3 TLD will allow you to protect your web3 TLD and your logo worldwide juridically.

From the moment you deposit a trademark request, your web3 TLD will be protected worldwide for 6 months awaiting for the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE.ch) to confirm and register the availability of your TLD.****

A trademark is any symbol, phrase, or word that allows customers to identify a company’s goods or services. Freename is a web3 domain/TLD provider that also provides trademark registration.

A user must reach out to the trademark department to register a trademark. To get your trademark filed for review at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, a user must provide the following:

  1. Complete a Know your customer (KYC)
  2. A list of TLDs they wish to trademark
  3. Proof of payment

Once these conditions are met, it takes one week for the trademark to be reviewed and logo/TLDs to be provided with six months of worldwide protection.

Is Minting the same as Buying?

Purchasing a TLD (or domain) on Freename and minting it on the blockchain are two distinct steps. When you purchase a TLD (or domain), the transaction is recorded in Freename’s database and not on the blockchain. Minting a TLD (or domain) on the blockchain requires a second step: log into the user’s personal area, select the TLD (or domain) and press “mint TLD” (or domain): done! Don’t worry, once you have purchased a Freename domain, no one can take it away from you!

No. Buying and Minting a TLD/domain are two different things.**

Buying **is the process of recording a transaction on Freename’s database and not on the blockchain.

Minting is the process of pushing a user’s domain from Freename.io data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full control over the TLD/domain.

It is very easy to mint a domain/TLD once you purchase it. Simply:

  • Log into your personal area
  • Select the TLD (or domain)
  • Press “mint TLD” (or domain)

What is Domain Minting?

Minting is the process of publishing a Freename domain (or TLD) on the blockchain via your wallet to gain full custody of the domain. This means that the only person that has control over the domain (or TLD) is the person who controls (has access to) the wallet.

Minting is the process of pushing a user’s domain from Freename.io data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full ownership over the domain.

Minting on Freename.io is as simple as the following steps:

  1. Go to the Freename.io website
  2. Enter the TLD/domain you want to buy in the search bar
  3. Add the TLD/domain to your cart
  4. Go to checkout
  5. Create a Freename.io account
  6. Purchase the TLD/domain with cryptocurrency or a credit card
  7. Go to “portfolio and incomes.”
  8. Click on mint TLD/domain

Which domains are Protected?

Protected domains and TLDs are domains and TLDs that we’ve detected are associated with a brand, organization, or notable person. We believe it is important to increase adoption for the next generation of the internet by helping to onboard brands into the Web3 era. If you are interested in applying for a Protected domain, please contact us.

TLDs/Domains associated with a notable person, brand or organization are considered Protected Domains. Protected domains help onboard brands in Web 3 increasing adoption. Protected domains also protect users from others impersonating/stealing their domains.

Reach out to Freename.io to apply for a protected domain.

Why use Freename?

Freename domains are unique by their very nature: only with Freename you can register domains with unique TLDs for your digital identity while passively earning money!

Freename.io is not only the leading TLD and Domains platform in Web 3, but also lets users generate passive income!

Owning a Freename Web 3 TLD entitles users to receive passive income whenever a domain is bought on their TLD. Users can register and mint TLD/domains of their choice if available.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is a string of letters and/or numbers that points to the IP address of the corresponding website. Generally, it is easier to remember a name than a long string of numbers.

A domain name is an address that people type into a browser bar to find a website. It consists of a Top-Level Domain (TLD), everything that comes after the dot, and the Second-Level Domain (SLD), everything that comes before the dot.

For example, “Freename.io” is the domain name, “Freename” is the SLD and “io” is the TLD.

Which Chains are Supported?

Freename has a multi-chain approach. You can choose on which Blockchain to mint your Web3 Domains and TLDs ranging Among Polygon, Cronos, and Binance.

A user can mint a Freename.io domain/TLD on the following blockchains:

  • Polygon
  • Cronos
  • Binance

Freename plans to expand its multi-chain approach by adding blockchains upon which domains can be minted.

Are there Renewal Fees?

No! Once you’ve bought a Freename Domain or TLD, it’s yours forever, no renewal fees ever!

No. There are no renewal fees on Freename.io. Once a user has paid a one-time payment for a domain/TLD, they own it. Forever.

This is the significant advantage of Web 3 domain/TLD over traditional alternatives.
