Beams Anonymous Naming Service (BANS)

The Beam Anonymous Naming Service or BANS is the latest offering from the Beam development team. 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 Beam 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. Users can purchase as many BANS domains as they wish. Note: BANS DApp is currently only available on desktop wallets, and the DAppnet

  3. Click confirm to complete your BANS domain registration.

  4. Your BANS domain is ready to receive funds!
