NFT company Dapper Labs has gone on a defensive domain registration binge, registering at least 300 domain names yesterday.

The company behind CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot, and the Flow blockchain joined another NFT company, Yuga Labs, using brand protection company AppDetex to register domains.

It registered domains in 3 main categories:

  • CryptoKitties domains including,, and
  • Dapper Labs brand domains including (notice the typo),, and
  • Flow blockchain domains including,, and

Last month, Bored Ape Yacht Club creator Yuga Labs registered over 1,000 domain names. As I wrote then, this seems like a futile exercise. For every domain these companies registered, I can think of at least 10 variations that someone could register to target the companies.

For example, Dapper registered, which is digging pretty far into the list of new top level domains, but it didn’t register FlowCrypto .dev, .basketball, or .business.

While only 300 Dapper domains showed up in my DomainTools alert today, I spot-checked other variations and wouldn’t be surprised to find that it registered well over 1,000 domains.

One more thing. Yesterday I wrote about how you aren’t able to use Whois privacy for .us domains. But apparently, AppDetex is providing it for its customers. Don’t be surprised if the .us registry cracks down on them.

Here’s a list of some of the domains Dapper Labs registered yesterday:
