There is a New Dan in Town! Dan.com 2.0 Arrives With Stylish New Interface and Enhanced Feature Set

The first iteration of the innovative domain sales and escrow platform Dan.com was a hit right out of the gate when it appeared in June 2019. By the end of 2020 over 9 millions domains were listed on the blockchain-powered platform. Domain sellers were attracted by Dan's low fees, ease of use and lightning speed in getting transactions done. 

Over the past few months Dan CEO Reza Sardeha has been teasing the impending arrival of Dan 2.0 and he was clearly excited about how it was shaping up. The new Dan finally arrived Thursday (July 15, 2021) and a quick spin around the revamped site reveled it was clearly worth the wait. The look is all new - more modern, stylish and easier than ever to navigate. Features are better organized and there are many more options to  customize the look of both your account and your individual landing pages. 

There has even been a subtle change in the company's name itself,  from DAN (all in

caps that stood for Domain Automation Network) to the more personal Dan. On the surface, that looks like a minor change but their was a big reason behind it. As the company has grown it has focused more on becoming the partner of entrepreneurs, stakeholders, and the rest of the industry and now stands for more than just the automation that was its original calling card.

Dan released a very detailed letter that will show you all of the improvements they made (as well as what remains the same) and tell you why each change was made - from the choice of fonts and color options to more impact landing pages and everything in between. As a company that is always looking to innovate there is also a section on additional features they have in the works.  It is great insight and well were the read.
