Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is a decentralized naming system that operates on the Ethereum blockchain. It allows users to assign unique, human-readable names to their Ethereum addresses, smart contracts, and other resources on the Ethereum network.

e.g. Use for a crypto website or to replace a long wallet address. Usually ends in .eth, .bitcoin, .crypto or .sol.

One of the main challenges with Ethereum and other blockchain networks is the use of long, complex, and difficult-to-remember addresses. These addresses are typically made up of a series of random numbers and letters, which can be confusing and frustrating for users. ENS aims to solve this problem by allowing users to register and use names that are easier to remember and use.

For example, the namehash of ‘vitalek.eth‘ is 0x787142fc5178cc32aa926ddfdedbf26b24e3d78e40109add0eea2c1a012c3dec

This is the representation of names that is used exclusively inside ENS.
