Aliases

Signum Aliases are a powerful feature.

Signum is customizable, simple and user-friendly. It makes it easy to find people and data.

What are Signum Aliases?

Easy use and customization are at the core of Signum. Compared to Bitcoin for example, Signum addresses are generally shorter and easier to read. To make this process even simpler, the Signum team developed an alias system to give every Signum address or customized data set a human-friendly and unique phrase. Any alias registered to a given Signum address can be transferred or sold to any other Signum address. Different alias types identify accounts, links, or freestyle data sets.

A user can also change the type of their Aliases. All these actions are native functions on the Signum blockchain.
