Kadena Names are a service that provides improved user experience when sending KDA and sharing your address. Instead of using a long string or random letters, accounts can be tied to a short human-readable name, like "koalawallet.kda".
When sending, simply enter the receiver's Kadena Name as the destination address. In a fraction of a second the associated k: address will be loaded and displayed below the name. The address is loaded directly from the Kadena Names service, thus cannot be manually edited.
Saving Kadena Names
It's also possible to save a Kadena Name to your contacts list. It works just like adding a normal address, but the associated address will not be saved. It will be loaded whenever you start making a transaction to it, so the saved data is never out of date.
Please be aware that Kadena Names' registrations expire after a certain number of years. You are prevented from sending to unregistered or expired Kadena Names, but expired names can be claimed by a different person afterwards. You may want to check with the receiver if they still control their Kadena Name if you got it a while ago.
Registering a name in Koala Wallet
Registering your own Kadena Name with your Koala Wallet account will be possible in a future update.
