Nickname

What & why nickname?

In transfer, currently we should execute as like that, in address form: friday15evpva2u57vv6l5czehyk69s0wnq9hrkqulwfz -> friday1y2dx0evs5k6hxuhfrfdmm7wcwsrqr073htghpv

It is very hard to check and remember this kind of complex way. It needs to implement our kind-of-ID in readable way.

Nickname feature is kind of alias of the address that helps users remembering and reducing risks against mistakes.

Different point of wallet alias

  • Wallet alias: Local mapping. Other users cannot use it in transfer, or some other function.

  • Nickname: Global mapping. All users can use nickname instead of address
