XinFin XDC Wallet address will now start with XDC in place of 0x

XinFin today announced the new address prefix starting with XDC. With this implementation, XinFin Network will become distinguishable from other platforms which are also based on go-ethereum codebase. Developer team at XinFin performed a major change in Ethereum Virtual Machine to achieve the unique XDC address prefix. Developer team also changed the various libraries used for dApp.

Based on Delegated Proof of State Consensus algorithm https://www.xinfin.org/xinfin-consensus.php and go-ethereum codebase https://medium.com/xinfin/xinfin-joins-the-enterprise-ethereum-alliance-a49224324fe8, XinFin XDC Wallet address will now start with ‘XDC’ in place of ‘0x’. The unique address prefix will help users recognize XDC Wallet address instantly without even mentioning it.

Here is the address creation method used by XinFin. It begins with the private key, which uses ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm is the cryptographic algorithm in the core of addresses) to create a public key. The public key is then hashed using Keccak-256, which gives us a 32-byte string. XinFin drops the first 12 bytes, and the remaining 20 bytes yield a 40 character hexadecimal address, to which is added an XDC prefix. There’s no transformation to Base58, which means XinFin addresses remain hexadecimal.

“Replacing the ‘0x’ prefix with XDC will make our XDC Wallet addresses easily recognizable for users who often tend to misinterpret wallet addresses for another blockchain due to their ignorance and lack of technical knowledge. With XDC prefix implementation, users can easily perform transactions without losing their tokens. This XDC address prefix implementation was important to eliminate the challenges; a user faces while performing transactions and I am glad, our developer team achieved it”, said Atul Khekade, Ecosystem Development Head, XinFin.

XinFin TestNet is already live at http://xinfin.network/ and LiveNet will be live within a few weeks after thorough testing.
