A Decentralized Name System for the New Internet
Not your Grandpa’s Web Naming System
The internet is changing and being used in ways the creators of the original DNS could never have imagined. With Butterfly flexibility and expandability are at its core. It isn’t simply bolting old tech on new applications, it was made with the future in mind.
Each name is itself an ERC-721 token and can easily create ERC-223 tokens. This makes for a powerful token platform with a built in name and directory making them easy to find and manage.
Git was designed to be decentralized. Using a tool site like github made it easy to find projects, but it’s recent sale to Microsoft is a perfect example of how what was once a safe haven can quickly be taken over by corporate interests. Using Butterfly gives us a better option.
The incredibly powerful sub name system opens up an entire ecosystem of functional sub names that can be used as the basis for games and other yet to be invented applications.
Fully Decentralized Dapps
Dapps built on blockchains have huge potential, but most of the time they still have central points of failure. With Butterfly for naming and IPFS to store static assets developers now have a way to create fully decentralized Dapps.

Butterfly is more than a replacement, it is an upgrade
There is no point taking the existing system and just putting it on a blockchain. Butterfly isn’t just DNS on a blockchain, it is a better name system. We looked at where the current system was lacking and what it could look like if it wasn’t held back by legacy technology. We built Butterfly to be the name system the brave new internet needs and deserves.
Websites are constantly being blocked by hostile state actors. With Butterfly your name lives on the blockchain forever and can’t be taken down.
Butterfly takes control back from centralized authorities and gives it to the people who own the names.
You found the perfect name for your site, why should you pay every year just to keep it? Or get it taken away just because you pissed the wrong people off. With Butterfly when you own a name, you own it forever.
With the existing system you are limited to simple ASCII characters. With Butterfly you can use Chinese names like 商业 and even emojis ☺
One name, many ways to connect. A single name can go to your website, used to send you a secure message, or link to a crypto wallet.
Own Your Own Voice
As a way to showcase the decentralized and censorship resistant qualities of the Butterfly platform we are creating the Butterfly mobile app. This new app will allow anyone in the world to easily acquire a .HUMAN subdomain name and then use that domain to publish content for others to read. No person or organization can block your content, censor you, or cancel your account. You own everything.
