Address Book

The Address Book feature allows contributors to quickly identify verified wallet addresses in a colony. By adding a wallet address to the Address Book, the address will be shown in the members list with a green check mark.

This feature helps keep your colony secure against imposters and other bad actors. User selection inputs throughout the Colony UI will only show addresses that are in the Address Book and will warn you if you're interacting with an unapproved address.

Adding a trusted address

To add an address to the colony's Address Book, navigate to New Action -> Manage Teams -> Manage Address Book and add the new address. You can annotate this new address addition to let other members of the colony know why you are adding this address.
