Crypto Names

A Typical Crypto Wallet Address looks like this: 0x54baae98985573858f14b8faedcbe647bf0d28ed

A typical Crypto Name looks like this:  $PeterBowen, $Storefront, $RandySmith or $MyMiningGroup

As interest and demand grows within the cryptocurrency community, the need for an easy to use method to send and receive these various tokens and coins is needed. Crypto Names solves this exact need in the community by giving people the choice to use an easy to remember Crypto Name which will translate to any given public key or wallet address supplied by the owner of the Crypto Name. Within the member control panel, Crypto Name owners can easily configure their name to resolve to any public key or wallet address on any crypto wallet system they choose. A Crypto Name can be your real name, your nickname, any fictional name or even your store or business name.

A brief explanation of the Crypto Name System and how it works.

What makes up a Crypto Name? 

A Crypto Name looks like this:                                                            $James.mag, $PeterBowen.eth, $Storefront.eth or $Rockstar.btc

A Crypto name is made up of 3 basic components. The first component is our unique identifier the dollar sign ($). The second component is the unique name chosen by the crypto name owner. The third component is the cryptocurrency symbol, such as .BTC for bitcoin or .ETH for Ethereum.

Crypto Names can be used for just about any cryptocurrency that has a public key. We will always be adding more cryptocurrency symbols as they become available. Cryptocurrency operators may contact us to have their coin or token added to our list of supported cryptocurrencies.

How to use a Crypto Name?

When sending a supported cryptocurrency from a participating crypto wallet application, you will be given the option to send cryptocurrency to a public key or to a crypto name.

The wallet application will lookup the public key or wallet address associated to the Crypto Name in the background. The wallet application will call out to our system using a simple API call, to retrieve the correct public key or wallet address that will be used for the given Crypto Name and cryptocurrency that is about to be sent.

How to add a public key or wallet address to a Crypto Name?

Once you have purchased your Crypto Name and verified your account, you will have full access to the member control panel where you can assign cryptocurrencies to your Crypto Name. Simply press the add button next to the crypto name, then select the currency and add your public key or wallet address. Now all payments to your Crypto Name will be directed to your wallet. You may change the assigned public key or wallet address at anytime using the edit button next to each cryptocurrency assigned to your Crypto Name.

There is no limit to the number of Crypto Names you can have in your account. And you can use the same public key or wallet address for multiple Crypto Names you may have. Click the image to see an example of the control panel.

Can I transfer my Crypto Name to someone else?

We have a feature that will allow the transfer of a Crypto Name to another active Crypto Name account. There is no fee for transfers. There is an email sent the email address on your account to approve all transfers. You may cancel a pending transfer that has not yet been approved. This feature does make it possible for anyone to buy unique one of a kind Crypto Names and then sell them on a secondary market websites or on social media marketplaces.
