Learn to Register Your FIO Name in ioPay

FIO and IoTeX banner

ioPay and FIO’s partnership is bearing fruit. You can now create a user-friendly wallet identity to send and receive crypto payments. Just one identity for all of your crypto.

If you’d like, you can stop reading right here and jump into our video tutorial to get set up in an instant. Or hold off on the video and learn why we think you’ll love this!

Get set up right from your ioPay wallet. The principles of user focused design, interoperability, open standards, and decentralization continue to guide our product development. We believe you should take pleasure in using everything we build.

Now there’s no need to copy and paste a long string of letters and numbers, press Send, and wait to see if your money went where you wanted. You can have just one crypto wallet identity. With your FIO Crypto Handle, your one identifier removes the need for blockchain public addresses. We think you’ll like:

  • Human-readable crypto identities: lets users initiate transactions using easy to read and memorable identifiers like “john@iopay” or “jane@device”
  • Private: sensitive counterparty information, including public addresses and metadata, can be encrypted on the blockchain
  • Interoperable: once integrated into a wallet, the FIO Protocol works with any blockchain and cryptocurrency without any integration to those chains.
  • FIO Send: with FIO Send you can now easily withdraw and send any cryptocurrency without the stress of copying and pasting long string public addresses that users of this and other wallets normally use. FIO Send replaces that long string public address that is vulnerable to errors and other exploits with a simple, human-readable address known as a FIO Crypto Handle. The long string public key address is replaced with the FIO Crypto Handle in the format of username@domain or, for example, janedoe@iopay.
