Last Call for the ENS Workshop, 10 Languages, and More

ENS Workshop

Once a year, the ENS team invites community members to an “unconference style” workshop, in which we discuss the current state and future direction of the project. Previously we’ve held this in London and Osaka, but this year’s workshop will be held virtually.

We put out a call for participation about a month ago and just announced the date as September 29th 12noon US eastern time. To keep the discussions high quality, we ask those who wish to participate to apply. We’d love to see you there!

10 Languages

Both the ENS homepage and manager app are now available in 10 languages: English, Chinese, Japanese, German, Spanish, French, Korean, Polish, Russian, and Vietnamese. A big thanks to our volunteer translators!

ENS is for everyone, so we’d like to have the ENS manager app and homepage in many languages to make it as accessible as possible.

If you are a native speaker of another language and are interested in contributing, see the last section of our blog post on the subject.

Reclaim old deposits

If you registered a .ETH name sometime between May 2017 and May 2019 using the old auction system, you may have an unclaimed deposit.

The ability to get back your old deposit has always been possible in our manager app, but to make it even easier we’ve made a standalone app where you can quickly check to see if you have any outstanding deposits and reclaim them.


We had some great submissions for our prizes at HackFS. You can see our five winners here.

We’re also happy to be sponsoring prizes for the Apollo Gitcoin hackathon, the Chainlink hackathon, and ETHOnline.

Chainlink grant

We received a grant from Chainlink! The grant will help us work with them to use ENS for naming oracles and to cut down on costs for claiming DNS names on ENS.
