YEC Usernames

  1. First, get a FIO-enabled wallet like Guarda Wallet. This will give you a FIO public address and private key.
  2. Fund the FIO address. You’re going to need about $2 of FIO token for each username you want to create. Either find a friend who will spot you ~40 FIO (at today’s rate), or acquire FIO tokens on an exchange like, or use Edge app to exchange in-app for FIO. Send your FIO tokens to the FIO address you set up in step 1.
  3. Locate your FIO private key. Do not share this with anyone, but you will need it for the next step.
  4. Download the universal FIO signer, Anchor Wallet Import your FIO private key into Anchor Wallet.
  5. Go to the FIO register tool
  6. Click on +create FIO address
  7. Register for the FIO username you want. i.e. joe@yec. This address registration step is where you pay the 30–40 FIO (~$2). You’ll be prompted to sign the transaction in the Anchor Wallet.
  8. This registration lasts for 1 year. Within the year, you will have to renew the username by clicking ‘renew address’ in the FIO register tool
  9. Attach a Ycash address to your username by clicking on +add address association. You’ll be prompted to sign the action in the Anchor Wallet.
  10. Viola. Now you have an @yec username. Test it out in the Guarda wallet. Instead of copy/pasting a long cryptographic address, just type your username in the send-to field.
