Hi everyone!

I developed an alias service for Monero, which works with most Monero wallets. With OpenAlias standard, you can convert your long wallet address to human readable addresses. If you want to test it, type monerochan@xmr.ist as recipient in your favorite wallet!

It’s automated, that means your alias will be activated right after payment. Service price is 0.05 XMR for 6+ character aliases, it’s one time payment. I will also share a coupon code, so you can get 30% discount.

Website: https://xmr.ist/

Coupon code: ISTMAY30

Apart from OpenAlias functionality, I’m working on different features for subdomain. Right now you can redirect subdomain to your website, in the future you will be able to use it as link list. (like Linktree)

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please share so I can improve the website. Thank you!

    Looks pretty cool, I tried it out and set one up, process was easy enough. I think it would be good functionality though to be able to update the address from the dashboard.

    Have you tested out whether this is functioning with CakeWallet? Their documentation says they support OpenAlias, but it does not appear to be working when I’m trying it out.

      Thank you for getting one of first aliases! Wallet update feature will be added to dashboard soon. I’m working on it right now. (edit: added this feature, you can follow https://xmr.ist/changelog for updates)

      I also couldn’t figure out how to use OpenAlias on Cake wallet.

        Cool. I will follow-up with Cake then because I think it’s broken if it’s also not working for you, at least in their Monero.com wallet. Their docs say it supports it, and I found an old blog post by Justin also demonstrating support.

    How is this different from https://xmr.id/ ? Which has been around a while. I still don’t quite understand paying for something you can set yourself.

      Main functionality is same, both provides you OpenAlias. As my website is new, more aliases are available to register. Also it’s cheaper. Apart from OpenAlias, I plan to introduce some features for subdomain.

        more aliases are available to register

        This one is technically not true until you add Punycode support - and only if you manage to remain below XMR.ID’s user count by that time :D

        (Without Punycode, staying RFC-compliant, and applying XMR.IST’s restriction of 30-characters max, we could provide roughly a count of 30^37-1-<amount of users>, but even if we had a 10-chars limit, the number would still be unfathomable.)

        Welcome to the space - it feels less lonely now!

          My bad, I meant more plain words are unclaimed/available for register. It’s more likely name@xmr.id registered as you were operating for years, if someone specifically want to get their name as alias, it could be useful for them. Emoji support was something I plan for the future, I’ll think about punycode. I’m not sure people would like to use non ascii characters (beside emojis) though.

            Curiously, most ended up preferring a less readable XMR ID, leaving many common and given names available.

            Maybe this is because nowadays we tend to assume the good ones online to be taken - so it’s actually a great idea that you point that out! Let’s see how it affects the trend.
