    Blockchain domains. Due to networking effects likely only one system will really 'catch on' - same principle as 'forking Bitcoin' by itself not making your copy worth anything.

    Personally I stay out of the fray but lately "NFT" has been really misused and misunderstood.

    There are some interesting uses for non-fungible tokens that aren't based around selling a SHA256 hash of a piece of art.

    The Ethereum Name Service uses the concept for domain name resolution.

    The ENS contracts are the closest thing I can think of to meet your criteria, but they are more than a couple dozen lines.
  • .eth registrations

    I always wanted to pick up a .eth address, something nice and short, maybe 3-4 characters, but they're super expensive on myetherwallet and ens.domains. Does anyone know of any other sites to register them, or if the prices will be coming down soon? I read that the majority of the cost to register them are in gas fees, and those fees may be coming down soon with the eth2 upgrades, is that true? If so, anyone know when those updates are coming out?
