The Basics

When you send Haven to someone you only need one piece of information, and that is their Haven address. A raw Haven address is a set of 95 characters starting with a ‘4’. The Haven donation address, for instance, is 888tNkZrPN6JsEgekjMnABU4TBzc2Dt29EPAvkRxbANsAnjyPbb3iQ1YBRk1UXcdRsiKc9dhwMVgN5S9cQUiyoogDavup3H.

Because those addresses are long and complex, you will often encounter an @OpenAlias address instead. For example, Haven donations can be sent to donate@gethaven.org or donate.gethaven.org.

If you would like to get an @OpenAlias address of your own then there is some information on the OpenAlias page.

Integrated address

An integrated address is an address combined with an encrypted 64-bit @payment-ID. A raw integrated address is 106 characters long.

In-depth Information

The address is actually the concatenation, in Base58 format, of the public @spend-key and the public @view-key, prefixed with the network byte (the number 18 for Haven) and suffixed with the first four bytes of the Keccac-256 hash of the whole string (used as a checksum).
