1. What Is Multi-Signature?
- A multi-signature transaction requires at least two digital signatures to complete. Single-signature transactions are more common, where only one digital signature is needed to complete the transaction.
- Multi-signature is widely used in multi-party asset management, since it ensures that a transaction can only be completed when the number of signatures meets the requirement, which makes it more convenient and secure for this purpose..
- Users are required to set up a permission group to give other addresses access to the [multi-signature account] before initiating a multi-signature transaction. To learn more about how to set multi-signature permission, please refer to Multi-Signature Tutorial.
