What is CryptoName?
CryptoName is your passport to the crypto world, as it allows you to control your name via a Token and link your crypto addresses simply to one name, your CryptoName. But not only that, also DID, email and a website can be linked to your personal CryptoName.
At present navigating around the crypto world can be confusing, since you have to use lengthy DiD & wallet addresses, this unfortunately could lead to mistakes.
CryptoName aims to simplify the experience and reduce the mistakes made by linking one name to all addresses.
By purchasing " Brian.elastos.name “ for example, you can then link this name to your CryptoName compatible DID, crypto wallet, web address, email etc.
If someone wishes to send you BTC, ELA, ETH or USTD using the Elephant wallet, you will only need to insert "Brian" in to the address bar as the Elephant wallet has adopted the CryptoName service.
Simply purchase your CryptoName from our platform and follow the registration process. Since your CryptoName is a Token (CYN) and you own it (annual renewal fees apply). You will be able to store it, transfer it or sell it via our online auction platform (coming soon).
