Base Mainnet Domain Name ‘Masa’ Minting Guide

Author: Masa


Official news, Masa’s .Base domain was launched on the Base mainnet on August 9th. With the release of the Base mainnet, Masa took swift action and became one of the first projects to launch .base domains on the new blockchain.

On the Base testnet, Masa’s .base domain service is the top-ranked “Base series” domain service, with over 280,000 mints accumulated from over 230,000 unique wallets.

Over the past 2 months, Masa has collaborated with the Base team to mint over 50,000 Soulbound Tokens (SBT) for the Base community, including Dackies, CloudBase, Innovaz, Vaissel, and others.

Now, .Base domains will be launched on the Base mainnet. Here is everything you need to know.

Whitelist and .Base Domain Launch Schedule

All users who create .base domains on the Base testnet will be automatically whitelisted on the mainnet and will have a 2-hour early access window to create rare .base domains before they are open to the public.

Any .base domains created on the testnet will not be transferred to the mainnet. Everyone on the whitelist will have the opportunity to quickly mint their rare and personalized .base domains!

.Base Domain Rarity and Utility

The rarity of .base domains depends on their uniqueness, desirability, and limited supply. Generally, the fewer characters, the rarer the .base name.

Examples of rare .base names:

  • Single emoticons: .base and .base

  • Single characters: A.base, Z.base & 2.base

  • Combination of emoticons and characters: AZ.base, 22.base, and .base

  • Names: vitalik.base, ETH.base, and example.base

  • Brands: fame.base, cola.base, and .base
