In Velas chain 2.0 generation, we used to have Legacy Addresses (that always start with
V). Those addresses essentially are 20 bytes Ethereum-like addresses but encoded differently on UI. The difference is that instead of a hex string prefixed with
0x, the Legacy address is extended with checksum (4 extra bytes), encoded with Base58, and prefixed with 'V'.
