Are there any Ethereum wallet projects using DNS TXT records to resolve wallet addresses?

Setting a TXT record would allow users to have a human readable wallet "address", eg

$ dig example.com TXT
example.com.    3600    IN    TXT   "eth:0xde0b295669a9fd93d5f28d9ec85e40f4cb697bae"

Some proposals for formatting have been made by OpenAlias and ma.ttias.be

  • That's the obvious solution, though it looks like they want to sell their non domain mappings instead.

This does exist and is called Ethereum Name Service. Check it out: https://ens.domains

  • Yes, I've seen that project. Using TXT records doesn't require purchasing a new domain, which is nice Nov 11, 2018 at 13:35

For anyone interested in testing this out, I created a small npm package to query a domain for OpenAlias TXT records: https://www.npmjs.com/package/openalias
