 This article or section is a stub. Stubs are articles that have not yet received substantial attention from the authors. They are short or insufficient pieces of information and require additions to further increase the article's usefulness. The project values stubs as useful first steps toward complete articles. Work in accord with the Wiki best practices and Documentation best practices. See Wiki workflow and Wikipedia:Stub for more details on this process. See all the stubs in Category:Stubs

## Tox DNS

People's ID's in the Tox system are really long hashes like a bitcoin address which are impossible to remember, but they have some centralised DNS servers that you can enter name and address pairs into so that people can refer to users by name instead. The current servers are utox.org and toxme.se.
