Double names on Steemit ?! No ! :) - A response to some 0.3 BTC lost.

in steem •  last year

Sooo.. have been kinda' inactive on Steem for a while...

I was watching @crypt0's Vlog and he mentioned Steemit , so I decided to check on my account and upvote him.

After checking my wallet and noticing a weird transaction , I received 379.954 SBD , I was like " Oh great - How did that happen ?"

It turns out someone else managed to make a Steemit account with the same display name as my account name.
The user with display name Cryptoninja and owner of Steem account @crpytoninja.

I can understand how this might get confusing and I want to let anyone reading this post know ( if you don't already do ) that the display name and the account name are two very different things. You need to send coins to your Steem account , NOT your Steem account display name.

Sure I would have made the same mistake one day , @crpytoninja probably saved me some coins.

I have sent you your SBD back my Steemit "name twin" :)

Hello 'I Steemit Hard' !
This is your display name , it shows in the middle of your account page next to your reputation points ( currently 43 ).
If you want to send SBD to your account you need to send it to account @isteemithard <- this is your Steem account.
You can always find your account name in the top left corner of your account page.
N-joy Steem !

Wow, respect for what you did ;)

Appreciate !

You're a good person! How does one find out what their steemit name is? I haven't made this made this mistake yet but it would be good to know the difference!

Under your account page , lets say wallet , you have your account name in the top right corner @SOMEBODY and your display name ( if you have chosen one ) in the middle of the page next to your account picture/avatar.
