Does Ethereum offer a payment URI like Bitcoin does?
I'd like a user to be able to click a link and have a wallet (Mist) open with a transaction to that address.


Just the address:


Address with name:


Request 20.30 BTC to "Luke-Jr":

There are a couple of proposals, but I don't think either of them are widely supported yet:

EIP 681: URL Format for Transaction Requests This provides for a standard URI scheme including a function name and parameters. (This supercedes https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/issues/67

IBAN URLs for payments: https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/ICAP:-Inter-exchange-Client-Address-Protocol


It is not registered in the URI schemes registry http://www.iana.org/assignments/uri-schemes/uri-schemes.xml , unlike bitcoin, but it could. eth: ? ethereum: ?
