Create a new key

The following example will create a key in the local keystore named MyKey :
1
junod keys add MyKey
Copied!
Enter and repeat the password, at least 8 characters, then you will get a new key.
WARNING
write the seed phrase in a safe place! It is the only way to recover your account if you ever forget your password, and/or something happens to your local keystore.

Recover an existing key from seed phrase

If you forget your password or lose your key, or you would like to use your key in another place, you can recover your key by using the --recover flag.
The following example will recover a key with the seed phrase and store it in the local keystore with the name MyKey:
1
junod keys add MyKey --recover
Copied!
You'll be asked to enter and repeat the new password for your key, and enter the seed phrase. Then you get your key back.
1
Enter a passphrase for your key:
2
Repeat the passphrase:
3
Enter your recovery seed phrase:
Copied!

Create a multisig key

The following example creates a multisig key with 3 sub-keys, and specify the minimum number of signatures as 2. The transaction could be broadcast only when the number of signatures is greater than or equal to 2.
1
junod keys add <multisig-keyname> --multisig-threshold=2 --multisig=<signer-keyname-1>,<signer-keyname-2>,<signer-keyname-3>
Copied!
TIP
<signer-keyname> can be the type of "local/offline/ledger", but not "multi" type.
If you don't have all the permission of sub-keys, you can ask for the pubkey's to create the offline keys first, then you will be able to create the multisig key.
Offline key can be created by junod keys add --pubkey.
How to use multisig key to sign and broadcast a transaction, please refer to multisign.

junod keys delete

Delete a local key by the given name.
1

Default
Description
Required
--list-name

List all keys

The following example will list all keys in the local keystore managed by the junod key manager:

junod keys mnemonic

Create a bip39 mnemonic, sometimes called a seed phrase, by reading from the system entropy. To pass your own entropy, use unsafe-entropy mode.
1
junod keys mnemonic [flags]
Copied!
Flags:
Name, shorthand
Default
Description
Required
--unsafe-entropy
Prompt the user to supply their own entropy, instead of relying on the system

Create a bip39 mnemonic

The following example will create a new bip39 seed phrase:
1
junod keys mnemonic
Copied!
You'll get a bip39 mnemonic with 24 words, e.g.:
1
saddle lunch prefer aspect domain woman relief swarm exist behind cliff shadow meadow joke tower inherit upon tragic glow air march envelope joke estate
