Ryan.xyzIonos customer – (United States)

Your personal website is an online hub where you can control your online presence and share your career experiences, creative projects, and just about anything else you choose. Prior Amazon leader Juan José Delgado uses JJDelgado.xyz to showcase his skills in marketing strategy. 3D designer and software instructor Erindale Woodford uses Erindale.xyz to display their design work and online coursework. Austria-based Aleyda Rocha uses AleydaRocha.xyz to demonstrate her work as a researcher and artist. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’ll introduce you to an accomplished tech entrepreneur and investor who developed his online hub on a retro-styled website with a memorable FirstName.xyz domain: Ryan.xyz.

Ryan.xyz

Ryan.xyz is the personal website of spiritual-minded tech entrepreneur Ryan Junee. Ryan has a passion for technology startups and spent over 15 years developing and launching innovative ideas. He co-founded six companies including enterprise software company Parsable, digital health platform RxDefine, and online video platform Omnisio, which he later sold to Google. Ryan is also an active investor, and is currently a managing partner at Los Angeles-based seed-stage technology venture capital firm, ElectricAnt.xyz.

Ryan has creatively designed Ryan.xyz to look like a computer desktop straight out of the early 1990s. It features a desktop wallpaper background inspired by early computer-generated 3D art. The wallpaper is centrally branded with Ryan.xyz and the tagline “This is not a test,” which is a great way to permeate his short and memorable domain name into the viewer’s experience and help keep it at top of mind. The “desktop” even features 8-bit draggable icons. This unique and artistic design style serves to organize and highlight all of the information Ryan wishes to share. It also encourages visitors to navigate the entire website, making sure they don’t miss a single click.

The most comprehensive and informative link on Ryan.xyz is the lone “.txt file” icon labeled About Me.txt. This intriguing icon links to a Google document titled “Ryan Junee Bio.” This document highlights Ryan’s background, career history, and social media platforms, and shares links to other biographies about him on platforms such as Wikipedia and AngelList. It functions as a quick and easy, image-free press release that provides all of the most pertinent information Ryan wishes to display to the world. Ryan.xyz also showcases three links, disguised as file folder icons, creatively titled to foster curiosity and spotlight Ryan’s most prominent passions: tech startups, writing, and spirituality.

  • How to start a startup – This “folder” leads to his YouTube video titled “How To Start a Billion Dollar Business.” This link provides visitors the opportunity to discover that Ryan has a YouTube channel featuring eight insightful videos ranging in topics from leadership style, spirituality, and how to find profitable startup ideas. 
  • The nature of reality – Ryan’s blog, or “digital garden” as he calls it, where he publishes his thoughts on business, consciousness, and the nature of reality. 
  • Finding your purpose -Another of Ryan’s highlighted YouTube videos, titled “5 Questions to Find Your Deepest Purpose,” which shares Ryan’s insights gained from his own journey of spiritual awakening.

Ryan.xyz

Ryan populates his “desktop” with more creative icons to lead visitors to each location he wants them to experience. He shares an icon that links to his venture capital firm, ElectricAnt.xyz. Ryan also includes an icon that links to his Quintessence Newsletter, where he welcomes visitors to subscribe to his occasional newsletter for more of his thoughts on business, consciousness, and the nature of reality. Ryan.xyz even displays icons that link to his social media profiles on Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn. To infuse even more personality into his personal website, Ryan features two “.jpg” icons which proudly highlight photos of his faithful furry companions, Storm and Luna.

Selecting a memorable domain name like Ryan.xyz is beneficial because they’re easier to remember, repeat, and type. Innovative leaders recognize that their website URL is an opportunity to differentiate themselves and make a lasting impression on potential clients and collaborators. With Ryan.xyz, Ryan has a domain name that sticks in potential users’ minds because it’s as simple to remember as his name. He uses his memorable .xyz domain to control his online presence and highlight everything he wishes to showcase to the world. Ryan believes his .xyz domain helps signify his forward-thinking. As he explained to us, “.xyz is popular with technologists, particularly in web3, and sends a subtle message of being ‘in the know’. I personally chose .xyz because I wanted an ENS domain that was also publicly accessible in the browser (unlike .eth) and .xyz was the first to support this.” We are inspired by forward-thinkers like Ryan defining the .xyz community. You can keep up with Ryan by following him on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and by visiting Ryan.xyz.

XYZ is proud to share about the many incredible members that make up the XYZ community! We encourage you to do your own research before using the products and services of the websites we feature.

Mojito.xyzNamecheap customer – (United States)

More and more innovative NFT-focused platforms are joining the .xyz community. Ethereum-based platform Manifold.xyz provides creators with a means to mint NFTs embedded with smart contract technology. DAO-governed Universe.xyz helps artists mint NFTs and launch community-driven NFT universes. Crypto-based publishing platform Mirror.xyz connects writers with their audiences and helps them to distribute and monetize their minted work. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday we’ll introduce you to a new Web3 platform designed to help create NFT marketplaces: Mojito.xyz.

Mojito.xyz

Mojito.xyz is a Delaware-based NFT studio and Web3 platform that designs and operates Ethereum-compatible NFT marketplaces, games, and communities. That means that any website or organization that wants to start selling NFTs or create an NFT-focused game can hire Mojito.xyz to bring their idea to life. Mojito.xyz will create, power, and help manage the newly designed NFT feature. The studio offers useful tools and solutions for custom NFT marketplaces such as the ability to help your platform’s users to pay with credit card, electronic bank-to-bank payment, or cryptocurrency for both primary and secondary NFT sales.

Mojito.xyz

One of the most notable NFT marketplaces that Mojito.xyz created is for 277-year-old British auction house Sotheby’s. On October 15, 2021, the platform helped the renowned auction house launch Sotheby’s Metaverse, a marketplace for collectors of digital art. The Sotheby’s platform allows visitors to view and bid on digital artworks available at auction, as well as learn about the collectors and artists behind the NFTs. Sotheby’s initially chose to feature 53 pieces from the holdings of 19 notable collectors including NFTGirl and Paris Hilton1. Nearly one week later, on October 21, 2021, Sotheby’s made their first crypto investment by joining a $20 million seed round investment in Mojito.xyz, valuing the firm at $100 million. They invested along with Connect Ventures, an investment partnership between leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and global venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates (NEA). 

Mojito.xyz plans to use the capital to develop their engineering teams and continue building the Mojito platform. They aim to create more partnerships to launch brand-specific NFT marketplaces. Mojito.xyz is co-founded by early crypto entrepreneur Amanda Cassatt. Before co-founding Mojito.xyz, Amanda helped bring Ethereum to market while serving as Chief Marketing Officer for leading Ethereum software company ConsenSys. Web3 pioneers like Amanda continue to use .xyz domains to bring their exciting new projects to life. You can learn more by following the platform on Twitter and LinkedIn, or by visiting Mojito.xyz.
