1️⃣  The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) has announced its plans to introduce support for a new web domain called .box. This domain extension, known as a Top-Level Domain (TLD), is derived from the My.Box project. One noteworthy aspect of My.Box is the ability to enable the use of domains for both cryptocurrency-related activities and traditional internet services, including email. This development showcases the continuous evolution of ENS in expanding its functionality and facilitating a more seamless integration of blockchain technology with conventional web browsing experiences.
