Automatic Minting is the act of registering a domain on the blockchain at the time of purchase. When you create an Unstoppable account, we'll generate a new wallet address for you, mint all domains directly to this address and let you transfer these out to a personal wallet at any time.

We’re updating the way we mint Web3 domains, so all domains will be minted at the time of purchase.
Now, when you create an Unstoppable account, we'll generate a new wallet address for you, mint all domains directly to this address and let you transfer these out to a personal wallet at any time.
If you haven’t yet minted your domain to your wallet and take no action now, you can still transfer your domain to your wallet or Unstoppable mobile app at any time.
Why are you doing this?
We designed Unstoppable to be usable for everyone – even people new to Web3 – which is why we allow people to buy a domain without needing a wallet address. This no-wallet approach is vital in providing an on-ramp to Web3, but it also means that there are a huge number of domains that have been purchased but not yet minted.
This change should be largely invisible to Unstoppable domain owners and their user experience, but since on-chain data is public, we wanted to give you a heads-up on what's happening.
So what do I do?
We recommend transferring your domain to your non-custodial wallet as soon as possible so you can start using it across Web3. Here’s how:
Add a wallet to your account. You can visit our Help Center for step-by-step instructions on how to get started.
From there you can mint your registered domain to the wallet of your choice and manage your domain directly within your Unstoppable profile.
If you would prefer not to mint your domain to your wallet, your domain will still be registered and waiting for you to transfer to your chosen wallet when ready.
How do I transfer my domain to my wallet?
You can move your domain to your non-custodial wallet by following this guide here: Mint your Domain.
I don’t have a wallet, what about me?
By default, domains will be automatically minted to a wallet managed by Unstoppable.
If you’d prefer to transfer your domain to your non-custodial crypto wallet, simply create a wallet and connect it to your Unstoppable account. The guides below will take you through creating a wallet and adding connecting it to your Unstoppable account.
What if I have multiple wallets?
Your domain will be minted automatically to a UD wallet once purchased and waiting to be transferred into your chosen wallet.
If you have multiple wallets connected to your UD account and are unsure which wallet you would like to hold your domain, you’ll be able to choose which wallet to mint to during the minting flow!
What if I don’t want a third-party wallet to custody my Web3 domain?
The automatic minting of domains is important for both security and utility reasons. Previously, we held unminted domains in UD’s database which limited the improvements we made to the registry. Moving to an on-chain database means more transparency, functionality and security.
Your domain is still 100% yours for life from purchase! UD will never make changes or take back ownership of your domain. We recommend transferring your domain to your non-custodial wallet as soon as possible so you can start getting the most out of your web3 domain!
