Puma is one of a growing number of brands that have purchased a decentralized URL. They also revealed their nonfungible token (NFT) by changing their Twitter handle from Puma.eth. The domain name was registered by the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) by the German sportswear brand Puma.

Budweiser, a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev bought Beer.eth on OpenSea through ENS for 30 ETH lastyear. And when the fast-food chain White Castle registered whitecastleofficial.eth, ENS’ former director of operations even tweeted about his excitement.
All.ETH names can be “easily plugged in to the ever expanding NFT ecosystem”, as an ENS Medium posting states. An ENS name can be used to receive any cryptocurrency token or blockchain-based asset. It can also point to a decentralized website, store profile information, such as an avatar or email address, and allow you to store your Twitter handle.
Puma’s ENS is just one of many NFT-related moves the company has made in recent years. According to Puma.eth OpenSea, Puma invested in a variety of feline-inspired NFT collections, including Cool Cats NFT and Lazy Lions.

According to Dune Analytics the Ethereum Name Service currently has 724,096 ENS domains registered. The highest monthly registrations have occurred in the last few months. Unstoppable Domains is the competitor to ENS. It has more than 2 million domains and recently launched Login, a single-sign-on service that supports Ethereum and Polygon. Web 3 users are adopting decentralized URLs to create digital identities as more DApps (wallets, exchanges, and marketplaces) support NFT usernames.
