At-Large NARALO: Blockchain, NFT's, and Decentralized Domains - What is the impact on end-users, internet security and stability, and ICANN?
16:30 - 18:00 UTC on Tuesday, 8 March
Zoom 1 (ALAC)

NARALO is inviting everyone from the ICANN community to join us for this discussion.
The emergence of Blockchain technology has spawned countless DNS variants along with new top-level domain namespaces and alternative roots. All of this activity is happening outside of ICANN's oversight and regulatory framework. How does this impact the Internet and what role should ICANN have vis-a-vis these decentralized domain names?
Panelists Tom Barrett (encirca.com [encirca.com]) and Jeff Neuman (jjnsolutions.com [jjnsolutions.com]) will present an overview of NFT's and decentralized domain names and discuss the implications for end-users, internet security and stability, and ICANN.Agenda: https://community.icann.org/x/HgsiCw
