In this episode of the Bad Crypto Podcast, Corey Whitaker from ENS Labs discusses the importance of decentralized digital identities with ENS domains. ENS (Ethereum Name Service) provides human-readable names for wallet addresses, simplifying the process of sending and receiving cryptocurrencies. By overlaying human-readable names on wallet addresses, ENS aims to improve adoption by reducing the complexity of these addresses. Additionally, ENS domains can be connected to multiple chains, offering a unified approach to digital identity across different blockchain networks.
