Hi,

This week I sent a small btc gift to a friend so that he could learn how the whole thing works. He lost it in a matter of minutes when he sent it to the wrong address. He said that he had just copy-pasted the destination address, so I suspect that a virus replaced the address in the clipboard.

Would it be  possible to add a robohash (robohash.org) to addresses so that it was easy to visually verify the addresses and detect mistakes?
