ENS Text Records are uncharted waters, but they are data-rich and have tremendous potential for innovation. We believe that they can take Web3 profiling to the next level.
Currently, only about 3% of all ENS holders use Standard Text Records, and even fewer use Custom Text Records. The lack of a user-friendly infrastructure for managing and exploring these records, along with the high gas fees for using them, likely contributes to this low usage.
We’re building Tillies platform. It isn’t working properly right now, but we are planning to launch working beta in couple weeks.
The main goals we are trying to achieve:
To standardize and categorize Text Records
We are trying to make it easier and more seamless for Web3 users to create, manage, showcase, and most importantly, discover the Text Records.
Firstly, our goal is to implement three types of Text Records that can be utilized: Text, Link, and List. In the List type, each element can have optional text and a link. We believe that this categorization is sufficient initially for individuals to showcase themselves and connect with like-minded people;
Secondly, we have a plan to enhance the discoverability of ENS Text Records by fetching and organizing all of them. This approach will enable users to easily discover Text Records, including the most popular ones. Our objective is to establish standards and bring a systematic approach to the discovery of Text Records.
Thirdly, we are developing a streamlined frontend on our platform to facilitate the creation and management of Text Records. This frontend will enable users to efficiently fill in their Text Records, not only within the ENS ecosystem but also across other Web3 ecosystems such as CyberConnect, Lens, and more.
The main question here is what recording format should we use to write, and we want to recieve peoples thoughts on simple json format.
Addressing the gas problem by creating Tillies Text Records (beta)
Our platform offers the capability to create off-chain text records that will be stored on IPFS and linked to ENS Domains. This approach allows users to pay a one-time setup fee to associate their Tillies profile with their ENS domain. By leveraging this solution, users can enjoy the flexibility of making changes to their Text Records dynamically, while ensuring easy accessibility through the Tillies platform.
Our team’s ultimate goal is to unlock the full potential of Text Records by simplifying the process for individuals to showcase themselves, connect with like-minded people, and build meaningful relationships. We aim to facilitate the formation of interest-based DAOs/Clubs, enable users to curate Web3 content, and provide support for brands, communities, and other business-oriented entities to operate more effectively in the Web3 space.
