an alias system for bitcoin... and Auroracoin

Umræður um Auroracoin tæknina og tengdum hugbúnaði
- Technical discussion about Auroracoin software and the network in general

One of the inconveniences of cryptocurrency is the long string of numbers and letters that constitute addresses.

What I didn't realize until yesterday is that a system already exists to allow aliasing of these addresses to something human-memorable, without trusting a centralized authority.

Strangely, I can't find a single altcoin wallet that has implemented this.
Instead, we have openalias.org and onename.io

Seems like this would be something to consider for a future release of Auroracoin.

I agree on that. I think that some kind of alias system is essential to cryptos in general. Just waiting on a good decentralised solution.
