Ethereum Name Service (ENS)

The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is a decentralized domain name system on the Ethereum blockchain that allows users to associate human-readable names with complex Ethereum addresses, simplifying the process of sending and receiving cryptocurrencies and interacting with smart contracts.

ENS enhances the user experience by replacing long and cumbersome addresses with easy-to-remember domain names.
