Address labels

Cancoin

Address labels allow you to easily create unique identifiers that can be associated with a single public key. For example, you could label your friend John's wallet address as 'John's Wallet'.

Any transactions from that address would be labelled as being to or from 'John's Wallet' in your transaction list, and you can simply type 'John's Wallet' as the recipient address when sending Bitcoin, instead of the full address character string, and the field will auto complete when a matching label is found.

 

To add a new Address Label, use the following steps:

  1. Login and navigate to Account Settings > Address Labels
  2. Enter the bitcoin wallet address (public key) for the new address label and the alias that will be used
  3. Click Create Label

You can add an address label when you are sending bitcoin, beside the label icon (underneath the space for the recipients wallet address).

 

To manage all of your address labels, use the following steps:

  1. Login and navigate to Account Settings > Address Labels
  2. View, add and remove address labels as necessary
