Should minting/transferring assets using Decentraland Names be allowed?


This proposal advocates for the integration of Decentraland Names (ENS Domains) as a valid means for minting and transferring assets within the Decentraland platform.


Decentraland, as a leader in the metaverse space, offering users the ability to own, trade, and create digital assets. However, there is a significant limitation in the current system – the inability to perform asset minting and transfers using Decentraland Names/ENS Domains. This proposal seeks to rectify this limitation by enabling users to employ their ENS Domains for these operations.

The existing framework in Decentraland requires users to rely on public addresses when minting or transferring assets. While this method is functional, it is not as user-friendly or intuitive as using Decentraland Names/ENS Domains. Given the increasing adoption of ENS Domains across the ecosystem, it is only logical that Decentraland should align its platform with this popular trend.


To address this limitation, the following actions/modifications should be implemented to enable minting and transferring of assets using Decentraland Names/ENS Domains:

  • Integration of ENS Domain Resolution: Decentraland should integrate ENS domain resolution into its system. This will involve mapping ENS Domains to their respective Ethereum addresses to facilitate asset transfers.

  • User Interface Update: The Decentraland user interface should be updated to include a field for users to enter their ENS Domains when minting or transferring assets. This should be as user-friendly as possible to encourage adoption.

  • Smart Contract Modifications: Any relevant smart contracts should be updated to support ENS Domain functionality.

  • Documentation: Comprehensive documentation should be provided to users, explaining the process of using ENS Domains for asset minting and transfers within Decentraland.


Enabling the use of Decentraland Names/ENS Domains for minting and transferring assets is a natural step towards enhancing user experience. By making these modifications to the platform, Decentraland will better cater to the preferences of its users and align itself with the broader trends in the decentralized ecosystem. This proposal aims to pave the way for a more accessible and user-friendly Decentraland, ultimately benefiting both the platform and its community.
