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. Digital Names solves this exact need in the community by giving people the choice to use an easy to remember Digital Name which will translate to any given public key or wallet address supplied by the owner of the Digital Name. Within the member control panel, Digital Name owners can easily configure their name to resolve to any public key or wallet address on any crypto wallet system they choose. A Digital Name can be your real name, your nickname, any fictional name or even your store or business name.

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

What makes up a Digital Name? 

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

A Digital 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 Digital Name owner. The third component is the cryptocurrency symbol, such as .BTC for bitcoin or .ETH for Ethereum.

Digital 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 Digital 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 Digital Name.

The wallet application will lookup the public key or wallet address associated to the Digital 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 Digital Name and cryptocurrency that is about to be sent.
