Address properties of Ether?

Bitcoin addresses have identifiable properties such as the pubhash key always starting with 1, bip32 public keys starting with xpub, etc.

What are some properties of Ether addresses? Thank you.

    There are none. Ether addresses are hashes of the public keys truncated to 20 bytes.

    With contracts able to act as name registries the importance of such things is not very high - you can link any unique string you want with your address.

    20 bytes represented in hex. Typically starting with 0x because it's hex. (But that wouldn't be any kind of requirement.)
