Puma Registers ENS Domain, Changes Name to Puma.eth On Twitter

The German sportswear company, Puma, just registered the domain name “Puma.eth” with The Ethereum Name Service or ENS. This is one of the many NFT-related actions taken by the firm. Puma has invested in many feline-inspired NFT collections, including Cool Cats NFT, Lazy Lions, Gutter Cat Gang, and CatBlox, according to the Puma.eth OpenSea page.

All.ETH names are NFTs that can be “simply plugged-in” to the ever-expanding NFT ecosystem.” The ability to receive any cryptocurrency, token, or blockchain-based asset, as well as point to a decentralized website, save profile pictures such as an avatar, email address, or Twitter handle, are just a few of the advantages of having an ENS domain name.
