Unstoppable Domains Responds to Patent Controversy
In response to recent controversy surrounding a patent filed by Unstoppable Domains, company spokesperson Gould addressed the issue in a statement to CoinDesk. Gould emphasized that “the patent is directly related to the technology we deployed for our original “.crypto” registry on Ethereum and is distinct to our use, including many inventions that make it easier for a centralized company like ours to run a domain registry, for example, gasless transactions by paying for gas for users which we have offered for four years now. This is not something any other naming system did at that time.”
