What is the IOV Name Service?

The IOV Name Service is a proof of stake name service which comes with great features. It provides the starnames: decentralised usernames (like your twitter handle) which link to a list of crypto-addresses.

It comes with:

  • ✅ Universal Lookup (we support any kind of digital assets)

  • ✅ Universal and Fast Reverse Lookup (query starname of a specific crypto-address)

  • ✅ For any kind of transaction the fee payer can be different than the action signer

  • ✅ The most cool human readable format in crypto: *starname

  • ✅ Two types of permissions for *starnames: Open or Closed

  • ✅ Metadata can be uploaded off-chain like picture, full name and description

  • ✅ Portability: You can switch custodians while keeping your starname

  • ✅ Fully Proof of Stake
