FIO Crypto Handles

FIO Crypto Handles, or Addresses, work as human-readable wallet identifiers for FIO Protocol users. These handles are needed for users to be available the capabilities of the Protocol. They also replace long and complex public addresses for all tokens and coins n the user’s wallet.

Crypto Handles are built on the username@domain structure. Examples of a Crypto Handle are james@edgewallet or anne@crypto. An FIO Crypto Handle is registered directly through an FIO-enabled application or via a hosted registration site open for the community.

The FIOCH and all interactions that follow the FIO Protocol are tracked through an FIO private key. Loss of this private key will mean that Crypto HandIe will not be usable by its original owner and will not be retrievable. This is standard for all crypto assets

With the upcoming full integration of the Foundation for Interwallet Operability Protocol, MEXC’s users will be able to make their custom FIO Crypto Handle (ex. nome@MEXC] that can be used to send, receive, or request any type of crypto peer-to-peer, streamlining crypto usability, and removing the risk of making errors in copying and pasting long string public wallet addresses that can cause losses.

MEXC users who claim their Crypto Handle will be able to nearly remove the risk of sending cryptocurrency to the wrong pub lie address or blockchain and will also be able to enjoy the
additional FIO Protocol features!
