DAS has integrated with Polygon so that users can register and manage a .bit account using Polygon address, and reduce costs and increase transaction speed for users.
DAS stands for decentralized account system. It creates a human-readable on-chain identity instead of a wallet address to represent you in web3. All DAS accounts use the .bit suffix as a tribute to bitcoin, which is the pioneer and foundation for all things blockchain and web3. DAS today announced that it has integrated with Polygon.
DAS has several key use cases: you can use .bit to receive and send crypto, use it as a web presence (an example here), as log-in credentials for dApps.
DID: An Essential Part of the Web3 Ecosystem
Why DAS is a better solution?
A decentralized identity protocol as a foundational component of Web 3 should be highly compatible and easy to use.
This compatibility of DAS makes it the most inclusive name service, which is unmatched by ENS, Unstoppable Domains, and any other name system.
DAS allows users to register and manage the DAS accounts using ANY public chain address or even email, and it’s totally decentralized (here is why). For now you can use your ETH/TRON/BSC/Polygon address (and they are working on adding other public chains – BTC/Doge/SHIB in future) to register and manage the DAS account.
DAS is low-cost for users. ENS is the widely used name service but the users have to pay a high gas fee on registration, and pay every time they want to modify the parsed record, or transfer the ownership of the account. Users don’t need to worry about the gas fee when using DAS. (Below is a comparison of DAS vs ENS)
|Debut date||July 2021||May 2017|
|Cross-chain Support||yes (ETH, TRON, BSC, Polygon…)||ETH only|
|Registration fees||≥ $5||≥ $5|
|Gas fee||0||ETH GAS|
|Supported payment||multiple (ETH,TRX,BNB, MATIC,fiat…)||ETH only|
|Edit parsing record||0 Fee + 0 Gas||0 Fee + GAS|
|Owner/Manager transfer||0 Fee + 0 Gas||0 Fee + GAS|
|Customized webpage||Yes (e.g https://topbidder.bit.cc)||N/A|
|Secondary market||yes (https://bestdas.com)||N/A|
Cross-chain capability is the solid foundation for a DID to survive, and DAS supports all public chains to register
Blockchain is an important component of the Web 3.0 world, and blockchain is composed of different public chains. Therefore, cross-chain capability is a must for DID to become an infrastructure in Web 3.0. In other words, DID with cross-chain capability will be able to stand firm in the Web 3.0 world. Because they are not hindered by the cross-chain bottleneck, while those that only support single-chain DIDs will be phased out.
The most important feature of DAS is its cross-chain capability, supporting registering with any public chain address. This is made possible by the highly scalable Nervos CKB public chain on which DAS is based. Any public chain can naturally use DAS without any modification. Now, DAS already supports registering with ETH, TRON, BSC and Polygon address, and more public chains are coming. So far, no other DID has cross-chain capability except DAS.
“DAS is an access portal for Web 3.0 applications and provides a unique identity for any Web 3.0 user are the two basic application scenarios of DAS. Polygon has a strong and very active community. DAS’s integration with Polygon is the implementation of the DAS application scenario, which will bring a demonstration effect to more Web3.0 applications.”

DAS is a cross-chain decentralized account system.
It can be used as a digital currency collection account, as a domain name, or as an account to access general internet services. DAS has powerful cross-chain capabilities and supports ETH/TRON/BSC/Polygon and any other public chain address.
hi.bit, 你好.bit, こんにちは.bit, 🚀🌕.bit, 안녕하세요.bit, Привет.bit and Bonjour.bit are all DAS accounts.
In the first 4 month upon launch, DAS has seen over 14k unique addresses registered with 40k accounts. Major dApp such as HyperPay, imToken, HyperPay, Huobi Wallet, Alpha Wallet, BitKeep, NFTGO, NFTSCAN, etc. have integrated the DAS SDK. users can transfer any digital currency by entering .bit directly into these wallets.
