Leading DNS domain provider D3 Global has expanded its payment options to include Shiba Inu and BONE on Shibarium as part of its latest upgrade.

Amid the growing adoption blockchain and Web3 have witnessed over the years, proponents have begun securing custom-made blockchain-based domain names. D3 Global stands out as a domain name service provider actively facilitating this move.

The firm provides domain name services to individuals looking to secure Web3 domain names. However, most recently, its latest upgrade now makes provision for payments in Shiba Inu and Bone ShibaSwap (BONE), the governance token of the ShibaSwap ecosystem.

D3 disclosed this in a recent post on X, directing the announcement to the Shiba Inu community. According to the D3 team, market participants can make these Shiba Inu and BONE payments directly from their Shibarium addresses without having to bridge the tokens back to Ethereum.

Notably, SHIB and BONE are native to the Ethereum blockchain. However, Shibarium users looking to leverage the assets would need to bridge their tokens to the layer-2 blockchain. Making SHIB and BONE payments to companies like D3 would naturally require users to bridge their assets back to Ethereum.

D3 Global’s decision to extend the payments to Shibarium eliminates the inconvenience associated with having to first bridge the tokens back to Ethereum. Moreover, this development is especially favorable for customers who prefer to use cryptocurrencies to purchase domain names, rather than traditional fiat currencies.

Pay for Domain Names with Shiba Inu and BONE on Shibarium

An investigation from The Crypto Basic confirms that the platform has already implemented these Shibarium payments as of press time. To leverage the latest feature, follow these steps:

  • Go to D3.app with your web browser, preferably the embedded browser in your Ethereum wallet, such as MetaMask. Ensure the URL is correctly typed to avoid going to phishing sites.
  • Connect your wallet, such as MetaMask or Coinbase Wallet, to D3. If you are using the in-built MetaMask browser, this process should be seamless.
  • Input for the preferred domain name you wish to purchase and add the extension (core or shib). Upon doing this, D3 will specify if the domain name is available or not.
  • If it is available, the platform will show you the cost of the domain name in USD as well as other options that are available for purchase.
  • Pick your option, select how long you want to retain the domain name, add a promotion (coupon) code for discounts if you have any, and select Crypto payments.
  • The platform will direct you to a window to select the currency you wish to pay with, either BONE or SHIB. Select your option and connect your Shibarium address to MetaMask if you have not done so.

  • You will then receive a prompt to authorize the payment in either BONE or SHIB. Authorize the payment to complete the purchase of your SHIB domain name.

D3 Global Continues to Support the SHIB Community

In addition to the recent payment method expansion, D3 Global disclosed in its latest announcement that it has now included a feature to implement direct minting to users’ wallets as part of the recent upgrade.

The latest development comes four months after D3 partnered with Shiba Inu to introduce a .shib top-level domain (TLD) last December. Interestingly, the collaboration positioned Shiba Inu as the first crypto project to push toward getting a TLD.

A month after the announcement, D3 disclosed a special giveaway campaign for Shiba Inu proponents in a move toward supporting the community. The firm looked to give away the private.shib and officer.shib domain names to two proponents.
