We’ve been working hard to bring everyone this update, and while it’s taken longer than expected, we think it was worth the wait.
From the start, Nametag has aimed to become the universal naming service of the internet. An immutable naming service — built on blockchain, yes — but limited to blockchain, no.
We don’t think Web3 replaces Web2. Twitter doesn’t go away, it doesn’t get replaced by a new platform… it evolves.
So to become truly universal, we had a tough nut to crack: how do we bring Nametags to legacy social media?
We start by building on top…
Usernames are a foundational element of just about every service on the Internet. And while most of the Internet and its services have evolved at just about the speed of light, username tech at large is still very much running in the 90’s. They are the discrete digital assets that we use to identify our online selves, and are often treated as a sort of real estate; that is, they possess scarcity, demand, and therefore, value.
In fact, platform usernames are constantly sold like real estate… if real estate were contraband or illegal drugs. Platforms at large flat out disallow…
Greetings from your favorite green aliens! We’ve had quite a journey so far since our initial release, and we are excited to share more on what’s to come. The Nametag team is announcing some updates, changes, and insight around the direction that we are taking.

Maybe we’d sell a few hundred Nametags the first day, and then slowly word would spread around & eventually more and more people would learn about the project.
But, we sold out, and we sold out fast.
Time for the fun part.
Now that we’ve sold out, the development team is working around the clock so that we can deliver some great, quick wins to the Nametag community.
A lot of projects in the space are doing “gated” Discord groups these days. Hold the NFT in your wallet, and receive access to the group.
Pretty cool & useful, but… simple.
The Nametag Founders group is our version of a gated community for token holders, with a major twist:
Your username in the group is a Nametag in your wallet.
The purpose of the Nametag presale is to allow early adopters first dibs at securing their Nametags of choice.
The presale is a fair, open release process, and no Nametags are reserved in advance. At presale launch, every…
