1 Alias Operations

1.1 Create Alias

Go to 'Aliases' in your client.

First click on 'Register Alias' in the upper-right corner:

Register an Alias

Here you can choose to use the alias for different purposes: By choosing 'Account', you can link to a NXT account. If you choose 'URI' you can e.g. link any website with your alias. The third option 'Other' allows you to insert any text you like. All aliases costs 1 NXT

Please note, aliases are unique. There can never be two aliases with the same name. Aliases are not case sensitive.

Your new alias will now be listed in the 'Aliases' page.

You can either transfer your alias to any person for a 1 NXT fee, or sell it to any person for a specific amount.

1.2 Edit Alias

You can at any time edit the content of the alias. Just click 'Edit' on the Alias tab. You will see this panel to input the specific information:

Click 'Transfer' in the Alias panel and input the NXT Account where you want to transfer your alias. Alias transfer fee is 1 NXT.
