With its IDO launch and subsequent exchange listings, Cloudname is now much closer to leveraging the untapped domain trading market
Cloudname is a platform that allows domain traders to tokenize their domains using non-fungible technology. Thanks to the tokenization feature, it is also possible to create multiple non-fungible tokens for a domain making way for fractional ownership of high-value domains.
Business owners will also benefit from Cloudname’s services through its renting feature, as anyone who cannot afford to buy a domain for thousands of dollars can instead rent it on Cloudname. Moreover, Cloudname integrates 20 different APIs with third-party providers to discover and display the pricing factor of domains and provides analytics and prediction tools so that users can spot market trends before they are saturated.
What is the CNAME token?
CNAME is the governance token of the Cloudname, which also gives its holders several benefits in the form of free registration, free sale promotion, fee discount, participation in lotteries, access to the use of predictive algorithms, and much more.
