The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office today granted patent number 11,985,252 to Unstoppable Domains.

The patent is titled Resolving and managing blockchain domains (pdf) and covers various aspects of blockchain domain names.

Unstoppable Domains received a similar patent (11,558,344) for Resolving blockchain domains (pdf) last year. It describes ways to resolve blockchain domain names in a browser.

The company has made a patent non-assertion promise to other blockchain naming entities if they are members of the Web3 Domain Alliance.

Unstoppable Domains is one of many companies and communities with systems designed to be similar to what domain names are for the web in that they take complex cryptocurrency wallet addresses and make them easier to remember.

Lately, Unstoppable has been partnering with communities with plans to launch real top level domain names when ICANN opens the next round of applications.
