💬 This week I’m highlighting a conversation around a newly proposed SEP —Address Directory API!
Shared by Orbitlens, this standard describes an open REST API interface of StellarExpert’s service that maintains a list of well-known Stellar account addresses.
This curated list of Stellar addresses provides publicly available information about well-known accounts via a set of open REST API endpoints. The Address Directory API will be publicly available for everyone — free of charge.
An open directory enables Stellar-based apps to do some interesting things. For example: If an address is associated with an exchange, wallets can recommend a memo. If an address is associated with a scam, applications can throw a warning. The list goes on.
The Address Directory API open sources a lot of the dirty work applications would have to do in order to provide this type of experience to their users.
