V1 Resolution example (go)

The following Go code and example command-line application demonstrates how to efficiently resolve the smart-signature account address for a name, or an address on-chain.

This code is only for NFDs registered prior to the deployment of the 2.x NFD registry.

To be clear, this "lookup" is a hash to get to an Algorand account that may contain state. It does not mean data exists there at the moment.
