# Class: Address

name Address

description A wrapper around an AccountId and/or AccountIndex that is encoded with a prefix. Since we are dealing with underlying publicKeys (or shorter encoded addresses), we extend from Base with an AccountId/AccountIndex wrapper. Basically the Address is encoded as [ <prefix-byte>, ...publicKey/...bytes ] as per spec
