Puma Registers ENS Domain, Changes Name to Puma.eth on Twitter
Puma is the latest in a growing list of major brands to purchase a decentralized URL and reveal their nonfungible token, or NFT, by changing their Twitter handle to Puma.eth. The German sportswear brand registered the domain name with the Ethereum Name Service (ENS).
Other major companies with .ETH domains include Budweiser, the subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev, which bought Beer.eth through ENS on OpenSea for 30 ETH last year. And when the fast-food chain White Castle registered whitecastleofficial.eth, ENS’ former director of operations even tweeted about his excitement.
All .ETH names are NFTs that can be "easily plugged-in to the ever-expanding NFT ecosystem," as an ENS Medium post reads. Some of the benefits of an ENS name include being able to receive any cryptocurrency or blockchain-based asset and picking a decentralized website and storing profile information like an avatar, email address, or Twitter handle.
Puma's ENS name is one of several NFT-related moves that the company has made recently. According to the Puma.eth OpenSea page, Puma has invested in various feline-inspired NFT collections, including Cool Cats NFT, Lazy Lions, Gutter Cat Gang, and CatBlox.
Puma is one of the biggest global sportswear brands alongside Nike and Adidas, which have made their own entrances into the Web3 space with a big splash. Nike acquired the virtual sneakers and collectibles brand RTFKT, while Adidas Original's launched an NFT collaboration with Bored Ape Yacht Club, PUNKS Comic, and gmoney.
The Ethereum Name Service has over 724,096 ENS names created, according to Dune Analytics, with the highest number of monthly registrations occurring recently.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Ethereum price chart shows us that ETH has made a strong recovery during the ongoing session, reversing its recent bearish trend. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ETH push towards $2800. However, if the price drops, we could see ETH drop back below $2700.
