Web 3.0: DNS Servers Replaced by Blockchain

Just a thought for discussion:

What if DNS servers could be made obsolete with the implementation of a distributed blockchain solution instead.

Any thoughts on the viability of such an idea?

Imagine not needing to pay some centralized entity to redirect internet traffic to your human readable website address. What if the DNS entries already existed on everyone’s computers via a decentralized ‘DNS blockchain’ that future internet browsers could interrogate for routing details?

I reckon this could be a game changer.


It’s like first fork of bitcoin or something. Dunno why nobody cares. Zeronet however uses namecoin for it’s domains.

Ethereum also has some of its own implementation I think.
