What is w3ndi?

w3ndi is a way to send and receive tokens via a web3name using a decentralized index of digital accounts, built by Apillon. This is currently available via Nova Wallet and supports addresses across Polkadot (including KILT and other parachain address types) and other popular chains, such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, Polygon, and more.

Linking a web3name with an address via w3ndi is done via a digital file created by Apillon. This file contains identifiers for addresses that you attached to your web3name on the KILT blockchain. The file is stored on decentralized cloud storage (IPFS) and pinned via Crust Network

Note, this is not the same as 
account linking
, which links an account address to a DID on the KILT blockchain – if you have addresses linked in this way you also need to link them via w3ndi if you wish to use your web3name for token transfers.
