Once domain minting and management becomes possible on Layer 2 (Polygon), these will be the key differences to note between keeping your domain on Layer 1 and Layer 2:
We will cover the fees for minting and managing domains on Layer 2
At the moment, only domain TLDs built on the Ethereum blockchain can be minted
Minting and managing on Layer 1 will continue to incur gas fees
Moving domains from Layer 1 to Layer 2 (and vice versa) will incur gas fees
Wallets will likely need to be manually configured for Layer 2
- There are a smaller number of compatible wallets for minting to Layer 2
See our "What wallets are compatible with the L2?" article about compatible wallets.
