The Alias smart-contract allows the user to use an easy-to-remember word or name in place of the random sequence of letters and numbers that make up a Syscoin address. Consider this your account or username within the Syscoin platform. You can add personal information to your Alias, thus moving the Alias system toward a notion of an only identity platform. You can use Aliases in any transaction where previously you would have used a standard address, such as Send, Message, Escrow, Certificate Transfer, among others.
Alias also allow for more trust to develop between buyers and sellers in the Marketplace; a ‘known’ alias that has successfully conducted business on the marketplace, and perhaps even been verified through real-world channels, would be seen as trustworthy to buyers.
