An ndau address is a string of 48 letters and numbers, and is generated according to a specified algorithm from a securely-generated public/private keypair known as its ownership key.

ndau addresses are designed to be trivially recognizable as ndau addresses and to be easily checked for valid format.

To avoid confusion, ndau addresses are all lowercase, contain no accented characters, and do not contain the characters O, o, 0, L, l, or 1.

A checksum character is included to reduce the risk of typographic errors in the specification of an address.
