The æternity Blockchain Naming System (AENS) is Here!

I understand now. This feature is not yet implemented in the Base app. You will be able to make this with the next release. Once registered, you will need to expand a name every 100 days.

I have a question. If I fail to renew the aens in time after 100 days, will the AE spent on the auction be returned to my account?

I’m running Android aepp instead of web aepp, when will Android aepp be updated to support AENS?

Is there some sort of notification reminder when a name is about to expire?

No (and some more characters to make it up to 20 :man_shrugging: )

It is suggested that users can choose to set renewal time by themselves.
Different renewal fee can be set according to different time, and the renewal fee with longer validity is more expensive

do you mean expand as name renewal like domain renewal?

also who keep the name fee? Does it goes to developer?

Thanks

Names expire after aproximately 100 days and need to be extended if you want to keep them.

Why not 1 year like normal domain?

Wow, it is an excellent job, thank ae team. However, the validity period (100 days)is too short,the guys from Chinese hold the opinion that the validity period is set as 365 days will be much better.

it requires just one transaction with the regular (small) tx-fee to extend the ownership of a domain. are you aware of this?

I sholud admit that it is easy for the guy has few names,but it will be a hard work for someone has many names (more than 20 or much more)with differnt length and register at different, you know names with differt length have different auction time, thus diferent generated time . So, I am here to express the opinion of members of Chinese community that extending the validity period from 100 days to one year. It is may unfair for others if someone has many names,but they also spend ae tokens on the names.

I guess you can expect some tools to easily track and extend the domains you own :wink:

It’s not about the cost. The key is that the validity period is too short. Who has so much energy to watch? Would it be very troublesome to have more than one name? Accidentally expired, but the validity period of real gold and silver is so short?

I’m a big fan of aeternity, and I understand the team’s approach on many issues. But I can’t understand the setting of AENs validity period. I’m disappointed. It should have been easy to understand. As a user, even if I only have one name, the name will be used for a long time, but if I want to extend it every 100 days, the experience is really bad,Let alone people with many names,because the validity period is set too short. That’s what a lot of people want. Why is the team so persistent on this issue? Isn’t that community governance? The team should listen to the community more. Perhaps a vote should be taken. I sincerely hope Aeternity is better.

This is the appeal of many people. They hope to face up to it and make a more correct choice

what do you mean by this? Isn’t if I spend 100 AE on a domain and after 100 days I have to spend another 100 AE which mean 300 AE every year? Or did I understand this incorrectly?

seems like you interpreted it wrong. the nameFee is only required for the claim. afterwards you can update your domain with a simple transaction (NameUpdateTx) with almost zero fees to set pointers and/or to extend the TTL of the domain.

  • currently the update needs to be performed every 50000 blocks

The 100 days expire is too short, many users here is complaining about this (me too).

Hope dev team can increase it to 1 year like Domain Name, Ethereum name is 1 year, too.

Thanks!

Hi,

I experience wierd issue…
I bid on name and won it, but the counter keeps running (negative count) and I can’t see domain I won as mine but when I try to bid on it again it says “Already registered”.
Can I have some assistance with this?
