NOMULUS is a new Google registry platform benefitting from the scalability and ease of use of the Google Cloud Platform. In other words, Nomulus is "a backend registry tool to operate a Registry".
We are thus entitled to ask ourselves the following question on the model of Jean Guillon's article in Circle ID, "Is Nomulus the Answer?": Can Nomulus be considered the founder of a new gTLD world not relying on backend registries, in the same way, mutatis mutandis, that Romulus is considered the founder of Rome?
In the words of the same author, "since Nomulus is already in use [...] why would future new gTLD applicants have to deal with the technical aspect of running a registry when it could be just a matter of choosing a provider...just like when registering a domain name?". See here
Good question, to which answers remain to be provided.
