If a customer pays the additional $40 to claim a .crypto domain to Ethereum Unstoppable will send the claim transaction with a fee up to 140 gwei, which costs Unstoppable the full $40. Gas prices might be above 140 gwei at certain times so the claim will clear when gas prices fall below this figure.
If you wish to claim a .crypto domain to Ethereum now rather than wait for the release of of our scalable layer 2 solution you can purchase a credit to claim when you purchase the .crypto domain.
After purchasing the claim credit please follow the workflow in My Domains by clicking the CLAIM button next to the domain you purchased. Our guide for suitable wallets to claim .crypto domains to is available here.
If you have already purchased a .crypto domain please read on:
Claiming .crypto domains to Ethereum
From My Domains you can either select to pay the blockchain fees from your crypto wallet or purchase a claim credit for the domain.
Important note - purchasing a claim credit for a .crypto domain does not move the domain to Ethereum under control of your crypto wallet. After purchasing the claim credit return to My Domains and click the CLAIM DOMAIN button to the right of the domain name as shown below (repeat for each domain):
Suitable wallets for claiming .crypto domains (not .zil domains) are covered in this guide:
If you select CLAIM WITH ETH i.e. pay the blockchain fee from your own Ethereum wallet the box for I will pay the blockchain fee is preset as ticked (and can’t be unticked as it’s confirmation you wish to pay the blockchain fee from your ETH wallet).
.crypto domain management (excluding claiming to Ethereum)
Select Guest Manage from the menu and you will see options to connect various wallets as shown below.
WEB3 covers wallets like Metamask desktop and dapp browsers in Coinbase and Trust wallets.
You will then be able to proceed with domain management and pay the gas from the wallet that controls the domains.
