LINAGEE NAME REGISTRAR: THE VERY FIRST NAMES REGISTERED



On August 8, 2015 Linagee - @_linagee - created the Ethereum contract 0x5564886ca2C518d1964E5FCea4f423b41Db9F561 at transaction 0xf18ca6c25eafb634dac8256abe8bb2257f5ad2a1437221c22cbb6b870f97a9a7. This contract seems to be the first registrar contract on the Ethereum blockchain, predating ENS.


Between August 8, 2015 and May 12, 2016 only 82 Names have been registered. The next activity took place more than 6 years later on September 28, 2022. From September 29, 2022 and once @LeonidasNFT published his post about the rediscovery of this contract, hundred thousand of new name registrations have been performed against the Linagee contract.


Mason Keresty - @m_keresty - has created a mint and a wrapper page: linageenameregistrar.com. The wrapped names can be seen and bought on OS. @0xDerpNation has created a page where reserved names can be listed for sale: derpnation.xyz/tradeENR.


The first 10 names registered were:

Normally - a name should not be able to be registered twice - or at least that is the understanding of the contract. But strangely names seems to have been registered by different addresses several times.

For example: redditorname


and


According to Mason Keresty - @m_keresty - this is due to the fact that the contract function does not have any revert. So the transaction is processed but the first registration maintains ownership.


Let's see how this trend now evolves!
