Ronin Name Service (RNS) Coming Soon
Reserve your name before the public sale
Ronin Name Service (RNS) is coming to Ronin! RNS domains allow you to send funds and NFTs to a human-readable name vs. the long string of numbers and characters that we’ve been using to this day.
Today, we’re giving businesses and brands the opportunity to secure their RNS names before the public sale goes live later this year. Fill out the typeform below by October 26th to make a reservation. Mystic owners, select content creators, collectors, and other Sky Mavis community members can also place a reservation for a single RNS name by filling out the separate form shared with them in their respective Discord channels. Make sure the name you request relates to your current X (Twitter) or Discord identity.
We’ve reserved and blacklisted certain RNS names to protect our community, ensure access to our official partners, and reduce the speculative practice of squatting.

Have you ever wished that you could send funds or gift NFTs to a human-readable address on Ronin? Do the long string of numbers and letters that make up each Ronin address confuse your loved ones when you’re onboarding them into our digital nation? To make the smoothest gaming chain even easier to use, we’ve been working on a system for naming Ronin addresses – Ronin Name Service (RNS).
RNS will soon enable anyone, anywhere to assign a human-readable name to their Ronin address. Today, we’re giving businesses and brands the opportunity to secure their RNS names before the public sale goes live later this year. Here’s what’s happening:
What is RNS?
RNS is more than a human-readable naming system for Ronin addresses: it’s a pillar of your Ronin identity. There are over 11M total addresses on Ronin belonging to a combination of users, gamers, smart contracts, and more. Soon, owners will unlock the ability to name every single one of the addresses they own! Imagine buying your loved one theirname.ron as a gift, and empowering them to share their Ronin identity with their own communities. This will make it easier than ever for muggles to join our movement.
RNS will also integrate with the Ronin wallet, Sky Mavis account services, App.Axie, Mavis Market, Origins, Homeland, and more. That means your .ron name will become your unique callsign throughout our entire ecosystem. So remember to choose a good name! Get the best ones before someone else does. Here’s how to reserve your RNS name:
How to Reserve your RNS Name
Great domain names have always been precious to their owners. After all, would you prefer to be known as psych30ut902938.ron – or psycheout.ron? Businesses and brands now have the opportunity to secure their preferred RNS names before the public sale. Fill out the typeform below by October 26th to reserve your names today.
Step 1: Click on the Typeform link
Step 2: Complete the flow by entering the required information
Step 3: Once our team confirms that your reservation is successful via email indicated in the typeform, you’ll be able to mint your RNS name using your Ronin wallet address when the public sale begins.
Mystic owners, select content creators, collectors, and other Sky Mavis community members can also place a reservation for a single RNS name by filling out the separate form shared with them in their respective Discord channels. Make sure the name you request relates to your current X (Twitter) or Discord identity.
RNS names must be over three characters long and contain only alphanumeric characters. That means letters from A to Z and numbers from 0 to 9. The form will be open for 30 days.
RNS Name Categories
These are RNS names with negative connotations, sensitive themes, or deceptive potential that are not for sale. An example of a blacklisted name would be freeaxies.ron because it can be used to mislead the Axie community. We’ve prohibited the creation of RNS names like these to protect our communities from bad actors.
These are RNS names that we’ve reserved for our official partners and some key community members. For example, we’ve made sure that battlebears.ron will not be available to anyone – except the Battle Bears team! Again, this protects our communities from bad actors.
These are high-demand RNS names as defined by Sky Mavis. We’ve identified names that may receive large amounts of interest such as buy.ron and insurance.ron. We’ll host an auction for these special names as a means to generate revenue for RNS and reduce domain name squatting.
These are all of the other names. They’ll be available on a first-come, first-served basis with a yearly renewal fee and an anti-squatting fee. Stay tuned for more info!
Every blockchain needs a human-readable naming system. On Ronin, these names are even more important because of the interconnected communities of Ronin gamers interacting with each other everyday. Soon, owners will unlock the ability to name the addresses they own. Our collective destiny is calling, and we are one step closer to becoming the king of the gaming chains.
