Leave no tracks when you transact
When you share a normal address publicly, you are giving surveillance firms a starting point to track you.
PayNyms defend against this type of 'First Touch' attack by never revealing an address to anyone other than the sender and recipient of the transaction.
Simple, no nonsense private payments.
Share your PayNym to receive private payments from anyone, anywhere. Simple.
Unlike ordinary bitcoin addresses you cannot search for a PayNym on the blockchain, so you can't see the balance or transactions associated with a PayNym. Feel free to share your PayNym with your friends and family, or even post it to your social media profile, no one can see your balance.
Connect to other PayNyms
Connect to your friends, family, and anyone else. Once connected there will no longer be a need to request a bitcoin address, the PayNym is all you need.
Unlike ordinary bitcoin addresses a PayNym can be re-used multiple times without worrying about privacy damaging address reuse.
