Atomize is a universal directory for web3 communities. We curate Ethereum blockchain data into beautiful online locations, for fast, reliable, and authentic discovery.

We call these locations Profiles. Read our introductory article, here.


Creating or claiming a Profile requires you to have an ENS domain. Our web3 directory is built on the ENS protocol. You can register for an ENS domain, here.

Once you have an ENS domain (e.g. myname.eth), you can begin editing your text records.

A text record is simply a word or phrase (a string value) that you can associate with your domain name. For instance, you can add your social media profile links to the requisite text records:

| Twitter:

| Github:

This gives new and prospective members of your community a place to discover your media and technical content. This is similar to other link-in-bio solutions that are popular but that we believe are senseless for the world of crypto, as they introduce counterparty and censorship risks.

For this reason, we created Blocks.

Blocks are text records that are posted to and hosted by the Ethereum blockchain.

The content (address) you create is part of the larger transaction record and cannot be modified. This means you need to create a new transaction to update (modify) it. It also means no else can update the value without having controller access to your ENS domain.

This should never occur unless they correspondingly have access to your private key(s).


You may also claim a profile, if you’re a member of our First 100. Just click claim.

DM us if you have any questions, here.


Once you create a new Block, something magical happens. Atomize recognizes Blocks as official links associated with a community’s ENS domain. This is because a Block qualifies a community Profile for verification. Verification is algorithmic.

Blocks minimize trust and relies on the system to enforce the rules.

By adding a new text record on-chain (a coin, NFT, treasury, blog), a Profile is programmatically verified and they get a blue check. That’s it. Now you can share your community link publicly, as the source of truth.

Anyone can verify your verification on Etherscan, or another block explorer, by confirming what’s in your Profile is provably on-chain.

No third-party decides who’s verified and who isn’t.


Once your Profile is created you can always edit the content and create a new transaction in your dashboard. It’s free (minus the gas required to update the blockchain). When you’re happy with your Profile, go ahead and add it to your social media profiles.

Here’s our link-in-bio, which you can view, here.

Replace your web2 link-in-bio solution with a web3 solution. This will improve social trust between you and your community, and remove counterparty trust between you and the hosting platform. Your Profile is yours even if Atomize shuts down.

The content you create just reflects what’s on-chain. Neat.

This is a simple service, but we believe it’s a necessary one. Web3 needs much more transparency and less parental guidance, scams, and rug pulls.

For Atomize, that means decentralization. Not by governance. By design.
