As Layer1 and Layer2 rapidly evolve, the requirement for interoperability of blockchain domains becomes increasingly vital on different L1/L2s. One of the innovative solutions addressing this need is the concept of omnichain functionality.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! The omnichain function of Star Name Service (SNS) is officially live on zkSync, Ethereum, and Polygon. Using LayerZero’s omnichain interoperability protocol, Star will support more L1/L2 in the future. Currently, users can first try the omnichain function of the. zk domain name in the zkSync Name Service (“zkNS”,

Our mission has always been to make decentralized identity management and blockchain interactions easier, and with this new functionality, we’re taking a giant leap toward unlocking the full potential of the decentralized landscape.

LayerZero is a leading omnichain interoperability protocol that connects blockchains. It enables decentralized applications (DApps) to work across different blockchain platforms, including EVM and non-EVM systems, allowing seamless transactions. Essentially, thanks to LayerZero, blockchain domains can now become truly omnichain and enjoy wider capabilities. For this reason, domain name service projects are now exploring omnichain interoperability and SNS has made history as the world’s first omnichain name service, bringing over 150K users to the new era of blockchain domains.

Learn about Omnichain for Blockchain Domains

Have you ever heard about Omnichain? Omnichain technology is a game-changer for blockchain networks, allowing for the seamless transfer of information and value between different blockchains. With SNS, omnichain function enables your domain name to exist and operate seamlessly across multiple blockchains. It’s a technology that bridges the gap between isolated blockchain networks, thus fostering interoperability. This interoperability magnifies the functionality and potential applications of blockchain domains.

With this function, your domain name is not just fixed to a specific network. For example, consider vehicle license plates in different countries. Typically, a license plate only permits domestic vehicles, while foreign license plates cannot be used in the issuing country. However, with cross-chain domain names, it’s like having a license plate that can be recognized and used in any country without restrictions, making it an incredibly convenient solution.

For instance, if you own a .eth domain on Ethereum, it’s only functional within that specific ecosystem. However, with omni-chain functionality, the same .zk domain can exist and be operational on different blockchains like Ethereum, zkSync, Polygon, and more. This interoperability enhances the flexibility and potential utility of blockchain domains. It means that users can interact with different blockchain networks without the need of registering and managing multiple domain names that are costly.

Why You Need Omnichain Features

The introduction of omnichain technology provides a solution to the problem, allowing for the transfer of the assets of your domain name across multiple blockchains. It’s a significant step forward in terms of collaboration and integration within the zkSync Era.

For SNS, the cross-chain feature increases the utility and accessibility of zkNS domains. It allows a .zk domain to have a presence on multiple blockchains, opening up new opportunities for decentralized applications (dApps), smart contracts, and other blockchain-based services. Essentially, it makes zkNS domains( more versatile, more functional, and more valuable.

At Star Name Services, we’ve always been committed to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the blockchain universe — providing a seamless and user-friendly experience for managing decentralized identities and simplifying blockchain interactions. Breaking down the barriers between blockchains enhances the usability and potential applications of blockchain domains. Whether you’re looking to save on transaction fees, take advantage of new blockchain features, or simply experiment with different platforms, SNS’s open cross-chain functionality has got you covered!
