Alice pays Bob (wallet to wallet)

The case: Alice would like to offer some coins for the birthday of Bob, from wallet to wallet.

Both own a @unik-name and bob's unik-address for such purpose is @bob#gift. This unik-address accepts multiple kinds of coins. @bob has linked to this unik-address public addresses for these following crypto: bitcoin / ethereum / litecoin / zcash / stellar / nano / Ark / (and many more).

Alice opens her favorite multi-crypto wallet and selects the "Send" button. She enters @bob#gift into the 'TO' field. Her wallet is connected to the @unik-name Network which returns the list of accepted coins by @bob#gift. Alice selects zcash and the @unik-name network returns the corresponding zcash address 't1Q4KG7vagLk7gybReyYj7m9UCWFKvuKkkR'.

Finally, Alice enters the amount of Zcash to transfer and clicks the “send” button. The wallet proceeds the transfer over the zcash blockchain network. The @unik-name network watches the transaction and will notify @bob of receiving coins on his unik-address #gift.

Bob transfers crypto to himself (exchange to wallet)

The case: Bob has just converted some cash to one bitcoin on his preferred Exchange. He wants to keep it for a while and, as a best practice, he’s going to transfer it to his bitcoin wallet.

Bob’s Unik-Name is @bob.bluewise. Bob wants to preserve his anonymity 😉.

Bob uses the Unik-Address @bob.bluewise#wallet to list all enigmatic public addresses of his wallets.

Bob logins his exchange and selects "withdrawal" functionality, and Bitcoin(BTC)/Withdraw option. Then Bob enters his Unik-Address @bob.bluewise123#wallet into the ‘Destination Bitcoin Address’ field. His exchange is connected to the @unik-name Network which returns the associated bitcoin public address in a secure way, e.g '1aCNKqku43WKYWAx9saBQqwY96Z6tf9En'.

Finally, Bob enters the amount of Bitcoin to transfer and clicks the "withdraw" button. The exchange proceeds the transfer over the bitcoin blockchain. The @unik-name network watches the transaction for Bob and will notify him at completion.

Specific notice

To withdraw crypto from an Exchange, the exchange must have implemented the @unik-nam functionality within their platform. @unik-name company proposes multiple programs to encourage partnerships with exchanges.

Bob transfers crypto to himself (wallet to exchange)

The case: Bob would like to trade some bitcoin and needs to transfer it from his bitcoin wallet to his prefered Exchange, here BIXANGE, which doesn't own a @unik-name.

BIXANGE doesn't own a @unik-name yet so Bob has created the following unik-address @bob.bluewise#exchange-biXange within his @unik-name's registry. Then he has registered the bitcoin address provided by BIXANGE one time for all, here '1Z8QUDoJJL2AsdwssSRPSeeszKZsdVJAu'.

Bob opens his favorite bitcoin wallet and selects the "Send" functionality. He enters @bob.bluewise#exchange-biXange to the recipient field. His wallet is connected to the @unik-name Network which returns the associated bitcoin public address in a secure way, e.g '1Z8QUDoJJL2AsdwssSRPSeeszKZsdVJAu'.

Finally, Bob enters the amount of Bitcoin to transfer and clicks the “send” button. The wallet proceeds the transfer over the bitcoin blockchain. The @unik-name network watches the transaction for Bob and will notify him at completion.

Specific notice

This example illustrates that @unik-name owners can register addresses that do not belong to them. Which could be very useful in some cases like the one we've just described.
