Beam Anonymous Naming Service (BANS)
The Beam Anonymous Naming Service or BANS is the latest release from the Beam development team and the newest to the DApp Store. BANS is a smart contract that simplifies sending and receiving assets while providing all the privacy and security of a regular Beam address.
BANS domains link to your DAppnet wallets and bypass the traditional way of sending and receiving cryptocurrency (via a long alpha-numeric string of characters) by allowing users to send (and receive) assets to a simple domain name built on the Beam blockchain.
Users can register, sell, and gift BANS domains in just a few clicks. There is no preset limit to how many domains a user can purchase.
BANS DApp is currently only available on desktop wallets, and the DAppnet.
