Unstoppable Domains Users Can Now Send Private Emails With Skiff

In brief

  • Unstoppable Domains is a San Francisco-based startup that provides NFT-based domain names for crypto wallets and websites.
  • It has integrated with Skiff Mail to enable users to send and receive end-to-end encrypted messages.
  • Privacy is a hot topic after the U.S. government banned crypto privacy tool Tornado Cash earlier this month.

    But the unprecedented crackdown on a Web3 product doesn’t mean builders aren’t working hard to protect Web3 users’ privacy.

    San Francisco-based startup Unstoppable Domains today announced an integration with Skiff, a privacy-focused email service designed for crypto wallets. The idea is to enable more ways for Web3 users to send end-to-end encrypted emails. Skiff already works with wallets on Solana and Ethereum as well.

    Unstoppable Domains is a San Francisco-based startup that provides NFT-based domain names for crypto wallets and websites. Now those with an Unstoppable Domains domain name can send end-to-end encrypted emails using Skiff’s tools.

    Why’s this important now? Because privacy is an integral part of Web3, the company told Decrypt. “Privacy for me is one of the most important tenets of Web3,” said Sandy Carter, SVP and channel chief at Unstoppable Domains.

    “We want all Web3 apps to have a way to directly communicate with their users, if they don’t, then they don’t have a way for building community—which is a core point of Web3.”

    Skiff CEO Andrew Milich added: “It’s an interesting time in privacy right now. Our mail product is free and open-source and we’ve done everything possible to make your identity owned by you.”

    Its goal is to create a user-owned, digital identity for every person on the planet. Last month it announced a valuation of $1 billion after a $65 million Series A funding round.

    The company has registered more than 2.5 million crypto domain names to date, generating more than $80 million in sales.

    Editor's note: This article and its headline were updated after publication to clarify that Unstoppable Domains has not launched its own email service but rather has integrated with existing encrypted email provider Skiff.
