Mailbox User Guide
Updated July 28th, 2022

Introduction

Algodex Mailbox is a decentralized web application that allows users to send Algorand Standard Assets (ASAs) on the Algorand blockchain to other users. Unlike alternative methods, Algodex Mailbox allows the sender to transfer an ASA to recipients, even if they are not opted into the ASA in their wallet. Algodex Mailbox achieves this by placing the ASA into a smart contract escrow that holds it until it is redeemed by the recipient. In order for a recipient to redeem the ASA from the smart contract escrow, the recipient must first opt-into the ASA, and then redeem it from our website.
You can try Algodex Mailbox on Mainnet or on Testnet.
