Ada Handle Support

Today I minted some adahandles and I have to say, this is one of the best NFT use cases I have seen so far! The utility is amazing, I would love to see adahandles be also supported by indigo :smiley:
It’s just so amazing, I can now use my username when I need my address.
Did you guys mint any ?

Yes, I minted 6 in the Beta sale and 4 yesterday. I got a few for myself but also some for my family members…they just don’t know they need them yet! I agree that they have great utility.

Yes, it is awesome. The only thing I am a little worried is about privacy. I have mine in a second hot wallet I use to interact with Dexes. But i think that anyone who knows my handle can be able to see my wallet. I don’t know if I’m been paranoid but I just try to be careful as I’m still learning.

I didn’t mint any but I can definitely see the usefulness. Much easier to type in a handle than an address.

Love having a handle for each wallet, it’s so much easier than keeping track of addresses.

I need to read more into this and go to their site. What is the cost to purchase a handle? Thank you.

Congrats on your handle acquisition. Apart from making it easier to type an @handle in a body of text is there any other reason to have it? Am I being thick? Haven’t really worked out the utility as I don’t really give my address out to others much, just copy and paste now and again to move stuff around. What am I missing?

Did the same. Minted some after asking my kids what “screen names” they wanted haha, so we had fun with that. Would like to see Indigo take advantage of this great innovation on Cardano.

How so? I would think if I post a $handle, then you know it goes to me, but there is no vulnerability or way to exploit that info, you’d just know it belonged to me. As an example, on discord, I have my username set to $cleverusername to signal to people what my $handle is. I choose to do that. If I don’t, or am not comfortable doing that for some reason, then I’ll just use a “normal” ADA address. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and interested in any feedback.

I was lucky enough to mint mine during the public beta a couple months ago. Definitely a great use case and I love it, even though I have not really had a reason for people to send to my wallet. I think it is quite great though, and will help make transferring ADA and other CNA to others, helping adoption of Cardano in general.

True, is not a vulnerability per se. Is more like “exposing” yourself. If someone knows my capital movements and my social media interactions, that is more information that I’m comfortable sharing, with strangers. It can maybe make you a target for a scam? I really don’t know, I just try to be careful.
