Powping implements a new type of decentralized authentication/authorization system where every API request is signed by a paymail private key and encoded as a Bitcoin transaction. This can be very powerful but there's a tradeoff. It makes it tricky to implement certain features trivial in other traditional apps. One such example is deleting an account. We will figure out a simpler and user friendly way to do this soon, but in the meantime please follow the directions in the settings page if you want to delete your account on Powping https://powping.com/settings

This tradeoff has made possible to open BSV doors to the world... and beautifully... I think we needed this badly!
yeah I want to delete my account. but... WHY NOW ?
Just to be clear, it is already technically possible to automate this if we wanted to, but just trying to be very careful at this stage since this whole paymail based authentication is really an edge technology and we need to be very cautious when it comes to destructive actions such as account deletion.

Love it. Paymail logins are at the core of BSV's success

I love it as well. I think it's genius to have your paymail as your authentication for an account. I do wish I could change my username though. I accidentally used nenicloud when it should be 'ins1d30ut'. I'm branding myself as a reputable person that can be trusted. Is there a way to change usernames at all? I am just trying to do this one time...not every 5 minutes.

Pay mail change capability also means accounts could be transferred to other users more easily. Authentication, access controls, and accounting on accounts may provide features such as delegation of authority for posting, or for spending at various levels of permission. These are likely things for later, more basic functional things could be more important now.
