How to Sign and Verify Messages?¶
The wallet allows you to create and sign a message that other users will be able to verify as authentically yours.
Message signing and verifying is all done under the Sign tab of the wallet detail page.
Signing a Message¶
With a signed message, others can verify that a given message and signature combination originate from you.
Verifying a Message¶
To verify a message that was signed by a different wallet, you need the wallet's public key, the original message, and the resulting signature.
The SXP network will only know your public key once you have sent a transaction.
For demonstration purposes, the images below are shown from the perspective of a second wallet, assuming the necessary details to verify the message were provided to the verifying user.
