Introducing Point Address: a new way the world can define, share and manage their addresses https://pointaddress.com
Did you ever wonder who gave the addresses to your home? Or why is the address of your office, gym, or any building/place in the world called the way it is?
Most addresses in the world were created either by the Governments, local authorities or construction companies that laid out plans for building a particular complex. While most things have evolved, technology for some reason has so far revolved around assuming physical addresses to be immutable eternal truths.
Introducing Point Address: an open platform for Point addresses that any individual can Create, and Map it to a particular location in the world. You can choose any name, but just like email addresses, Point Addresses also have a format - called Point Notation.
You can create multiple Point Addresses, edit, change visibility or delete them anytime.
Point Address: Create on Desktop
Points are unique in a given country, so if the Point of your chosing is taken, you would have to choose a different one.
Moving? Simply change your Point
With Point Addresses, if you plan to move you no longer have to share the new address with your friends, and one day all your shipments too. Your Point moves with you. Just update the Point addresses you have shared with everyone, to your new location.
Update location but not address.
Points follow simple notation. Alphanumeric characters that end with the two digit country code. No special characters, and no spaces are allowed, but you can use dashes between words.
The point notation ends with two dots, one in beginning and one in the end, noting beginning and end of the Point Address.
Maximum length of a Point address is 30 characters, with the two dots, and dash + country code, every user has 25 characters of their choosing.
Protect your legal Address
When you share a Point, you hide your Legal address from others. In an ideal world, you won’t have to worry about leaving the your address on the sticker of couriers and shipments.
You can always edit, delete your Points, or better make them Private.
Keep your Legal address safe.
Legal addresses should be used for legal purposes. Property transfers, opening bank accounts and such. Point gives the users access to protect their privacy.
