Your universal name

Core Concept of Clusters

Clusters is a universal namespace. All the blockchains, all your wallets one name

Clusters is different than existing services. It's one universal name that encompasses all the blockchains. It's different than ENS' .eth, SNS' .sol, Avvy's .avax, SpaceID's .bnb and .matic, or Unstoppable Domains using arbitrary conflicting TLDs. It embraces the multichain world

Powered by LayerZero v2, a bridge with best-in-class track record, a $15 million security bounty, and configurable modular security, Clusters is natively multichain. Using chain abstraction, users can initiate any action from any chain and have it reflected in unified global state.

Clusters helps users create a universal profile:

  • Say a project wants to airdrop a Solana coin to all Pudgy Penguins holders. Before Clusters, there's no easy way to do this, you'd have to go manually collect addresses yourself and likely only get a fraction of the data you need. With Clusters, you can easily query which SOL addresses are linked to Pudgy Penguin EVM addresses

  • Say a user is trying to bridge Ethereum to Solana. They have to manually go open up their SOL wallet every time, copy paste the SOL address, and hope they didn't misclick on a block explorer spoofed transaction. Wasted time and energy. With Clusters, the bridge app can autopopulate which SOL address is in the same cluster as the EVM address they're bridging from. Smoother UX, fewer scams, and higher conversion rates for the app

  • Say a hot new blockchain app pops up, like Farcaster. Instead of yet another first-come first-serve squatter race where the app owner has to manually claw back names and face social backlash, cluster names can be easily integrated as first-class prioritization without pandering to one ecosystem over another
