  • Why don't you take a look at those coins addresses? If you are looking for someone to do that for you, so I think this should not be the best place to ask.

Nxt addresses are the shortest. They only have 20 characters.


It does not seem to be a good idea to only differentiate between the "number of characters". Some addresses are alphanumeric (Bitcoin), others are only hexadecimal (Ethereum), others are only numeric (LISK)...

What I found out:

NXT has 24 characters (example: NXT-MT4P-AHG4-A4NA-CCMM2), only 20 without the static hyphens, only 17 without the static "NXT" in the beginning.

Lisk has 21 characters (example: 16118128613908223361L), only 20 without the static 'L' in the end.

  • How does that pan out in a binary representation?
