Most users may find it hard to understand the differences between ONT ID and ONT wallet addresses as they appear quite similar. Take the following addresses as an example (differences are marked in bold as below):
ONT wallet address: ANjfiNR5zG1Dhm2dWwYMH8Wkju2eijAmGU
ONT ID address: did:ont:ANjfiNR5zG1Dhm2dWwYMH8Wkju2eijAmGU.
In general, when you transfer OEP-4 tokens including but not limited to ONT or ONG to ONT ID, the system can identify the ONT address contained in ONT ID and release the assets to your ONT wallet address. However, we generally DO NOT recommend you to transfer assets to ONT ID in case of any asset loss risks.
Please do double-check the address format is correct before making any transfers.
Can users transfer the ONTO points from old ONT ID to the ONT ID digital wallet?
No, you cannot transfer the ONTO points from the old ONT ID to the current ONT ID digital wallet, but you can still use the ONTO points with the old ONT ID.
