SLIP-0173 : Registered human-readable parts for BIP-0173

Number:  SLIP-0173
Title:   Registered human-readable parts for BIP-0173
Type:    Standard
Status:  Active
Authors: Clark Moody <>
Created: 2017-05-17


BIP-0173 defines a new format for segregated witness output addresses that contains a human-readable part that identifies the coin type.


The BIP repository does not want to deal with assigning the values for various coin types different than Bitcoin so we propose this SLIP to become such body.

Registered human-readable parts

These are the registered human-readable parts for usage in Bech32 encoding of witness programs.
