Posted at 7:46 pm on April 7, 2016 under Development

A common criticism of cryptocurrency is that wallet addresses are long strings of random numbers and letters, which make crypto inconvenient for the average person. Although this problem has been somewhat circumvented through the use of QR codes, Netki’s Wallet Name Service could make the process simpler by only requiring that people memorize a name linked to their public addresses.

Netki the address consisting of numbers and digits to a human readable address like the change from numeric IP addresses to domain names.

The transition from numeric IP addresses such as 96.251.19.29 to easy to remember domain names like www.google.com, was a key shift that helped move the Internet toward mainstream adoption. Building on this principle, Netki’s service works by linking users’ 32-character wallet addresses to shortened, easy-to-remember Wallet Names — translating a simple name such as raghav.unocoin.me into a wallet address like 3CpLXM15vjULK3ZPGUTDMUcGATGR9xGitv, using a combination of Domain Name Servers (DNS) and decentralized Blockchain technology.
