    • Management: These domains are managed according to known Web2 regulations and standards, ensuring broad acceptance and compatibility.

    Web3: Decentralized Digital Identities

    • Minting of Identities: After registering the Web2 domain name, a corresponding Web3 digital identity is minted by Orange Domains using the BNS protocol (Bitcoin Name System) on the Bitcoin blockchain.
    • Security and Resilience: Utilizing the Bitcoin blockchain ensures the security and reliability of digital identities. The Bitcoin blockchain is the largest proof-of-work network with over one trillion dollars in stored value.
    • New Wallet Address: Your Locker-Domain becomes your new wallet address. Replace long, hard-to-remember crypto wallet addresses with easy-to-remember Locker-Domains like,, or (e.g.,
