  • The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) will implement Layer 2 interoperability with ENS domains.
  • Layer 2 solutions like Arbitrum and Optimism will be used to handle transactions off-chain, improving scalability and reducing costs.
  • The goal is to make domain name registrations and transactions more accessible to a broader user base.
  • Off-chain resolvers and various service providers will be utilized, including cb.id, Lens Protocol, and OptiNames.
  • Collaboration with web-integrated domain name TLDs, such as .art and .box, will allow users to register browser-supported names via ENS.
  • DNS names will be tradable as NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain.
  • A new roadmap feature will allow the import of DNS into ENS at no transaction costs, improving web accessibility and lowering barriers to entry.

The article highlights positive developments in the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) ecosystem, such as the implementation of Layer 2 interoperability, collaboration with web-integrated domain name TLDs, and the introduction of new features to improve web accessibility and lower barriers to entry.
