📚 Intro to ENS domains

The Ethereum Name Service is like an internet directory for the Ethereum blockchain. It helps people find other people by "labeling" their web3 wallet addresses with easy-to-read names.
Let's think of your wallet address as your web3 username.
When you create a fresh wallet, your "username" will look like this: 0x0c24f8af31b9b552923ba36b29f484eabb7fa0d2
With ENS domains you essentially "rename your username" into something that's actually readable by other people.
Your "username" can be something like eldari.eth
This way if Vitalik Buterin wanted to send me some ETH he would simply type in my easy to remember "username".
