Using a Base58 Encoder in Cross-browser Testing
A base58 encoder can be useful if you're doing cross-browser testing. For example, if your web application supports various binary-to-text encoding schemes, including base58, then you can use this utility to write base58 unit tests for your application. In practice, the base58 encoding is less often used in encoding binary data and is more often used in environments where information has to be confirmed with high precision. For example, other encoding schemes, such as base64 use both the capital letter "O", the lower case letter "o", and a zero "0", and they are often hard to tell apart. The base58 scheme uses only a single lower case letter "o", so there is no ambiguity. Another use case is generating random passwords that have the base58 alphabet and text that can be spelled out without errors in noisy environments.
