DJ, model, innovator, artist and singer Paris Hilton has acquired the parishilton.eth domain name for an undisclosed amount. The American socialite also acquired two other .eth domain names, and now promotes her parishilton.eth account name through her Twitter profile.
The parishilton.eth domain name has been issued through ENS Domains. These domains have various functions as these are a user name, website domain and cryptocurrency wallet all in one. Instead of using a complex and long cryptocurrency address, ENS Domains allow people to use readable names.
Before Paris Hilton got the parishilton.eth domain name, someone bought it in August 2020, and it will expire on August 31st 2026. ENS Domains allow domain name holder to pay for and register their domains for decades, if they choose so. In a similar fashion parishiltonnft.eth will expire on April 13th, 2022, and ⚡🚀parishilton🚀⚡.eth ends in April 2026.
