Click the “Submit” button. 

Save the Unsigned Transaction Bytes, for example on a USB stick.

FAQ

Why SIGBRO?

Jelurida maintains and develops an Ardor wallet.

It’s cool. It’s translated. And all chains and platform features can be accessed from the GUI.

What is NOT so cool is that users must download and install this client-server software (and java) to use the platform. Unless you own ARDR and want to forge or bundle child chain transactions, it’s an unnecessary pain. Therefore the Nxter team developed SIGBRO. Child chain users should USE the network, and not run it, only ARDR secures the network.

 

Why blockchain?

Because your passphrase never sees the internet. 

Can I contact you? Will SIGBRO Offline work with NXT?

No, SIGBRO is developed for the Ardor blockchains.

If you need a similar tool for the Nxt blockchain, you can have it here: https://nxter.org/nxtbridge-offline

How does SIGBRO work?

SIGBRO saves your passphrase locally on your mobile device.

It never leaves your phone.

When you create an unsigned transaction, you prepare the Unsigned Transaction Bytes/json to be signed. Unsigned is the keyword here. The Unsigned Transaction Bytes/json hold all the information about your transaction – except the part it needs to send it: your final approval, which is the private account passphrase.

So, a transaction is prepared but isn’t signed. No passphrase is ever involved, no private key exposed to any website, any online node, any server, or the internet. It doesn’t even matter if the website or node your use to prepare the transaction on is malicious.

All the transaction information is put into a QR code.
Again – no passphrase has been involved, so it doesn’t matter if an eeeevil hacker sees it.

Now you scan this QR code with SIGBRO Mobile.

SIGBRO shows you the transaction details. Check them. If everything looks like it should, well, the website or node you used to generate it must be ok. You can now sign the transaction, tapping your 6-digit PIN code into SIGBRO, and broadcast the signed transaction. Again, your passphrase is not sent, only the Signed Transacion Bytes/json, and no one can derive your passphrase from that. Safe. That’s what SIGBRO is about.

 

How is SIGBRO Offline secure?

Because your passphrase never sees the internet. 

Can I use this online? Is SIGBRO Offline open source software?
