Using SNS

1. Transacting with SNS

The Solana Name Service is supported by most, if not all, of the popular wallets on Solana
Amongst other use cases that can be found under List of Integrations - transacting with your .sol is amongst the most popular
You can send SPL tokens and native SOL directly using a .sol domain or Twitter handle instead of using an address

Transacting with a .sol domain

To send tokens to someone using their .sol domain you need to enter <domain_name>.sol in the "Recipient's SOL Address" field. If the domain name is not registered it will display as below after clicking "Next"
If the domain name of the recipient is bonfida you need to enter bonfida.sol
Most wallets follow the same convention described here

Transacting with a Twitter Handle

To send tokens to someone using their Twitter handle you need to enter @<twitter_handle> in the "Recipient's SOL Address" field. If a Twitter handle is not registered it will appear as below after clicking "Next"
If the Twitter handle of the recipient is @bonfida you need to enter @bonfida and not bonfida
Twitter handles are case-sensitive
