About scamming and phishing Fraudsters have always existed and will continue to exist. In the future, there will probably be network-based mechanisms to protect yourself against fraudsters, but so far the crypto industry is too young. Currently, the police are reluctant to investigate cases of crypto fraud. The police show zeal only if the case is egregious. ...

A robust way to do that is to use cardano-wallet CLI. First of all, run cardano-wallet serve and cardano-node. Root Key The command that helps us writing a root private key into a file should look like this: cardano-wallet recovery-phrase generate --size 18 \ | cardano-wallet key from-recovery-phrase Shelley > secretKey.prv It results in private key ...

There are a variety of projects within the IOHK Github repository that may give the correct level of interaction you desire. After some digging I think the cardano-addresses project would fulfill your needs.

This page is pretty good with the cli commands needed for doing this: https://developers.cardano.org/docs/integrate-cardano/creating-wallet-faucet I remember seeing some examples in Python that just made calls to these cli commands via the shell module and parsed the results. There is also a cardano-python module being developed you may want to check out. Or ...

The answer is: definitely yes. You can generate those keys offline and off-sync using cardano-wallet utility. Please read my medium stories to find out how to do that: Wallet Command Line Interface.

There are many algorithms which can be used to search trees for transaction patterns but at the end of the day, people can really only do what they can do now. Call local law enforcement. Cardano in not a privacy coin so ensure you provide the transaction info to them and their success would probably be pretty good... eventually. Vigilantism rarely ends well....

Payment addresses can be used for receiving payment through transactions that require fees. The reward address of a wallet can not be used for receiving payment. Overall we can say ...

This must be the Payment address from your wallet. It is your stake key. All your Payment addresses will have the stake key which shows up in all receive addresses of the wallet. Its nothing to do with entropy in the Private Key which is generated using an opensource library. It may be seen as a privacy issue to include the same staking key in all your ...

DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!! Not to sound pretentious or unhelpful, but lets imagine a spectrum of trust: On one end, there is the super paranoid computer nerd who doesn't use any software unless they can read and audit the code themselves. On the other end, there is the naive grandma who downloads/executes anything the screen tells her to. Where the rational ...

To make a long story short, in Cardano's environment, you will need 2 sets of keys. One set to control your funds (send and receive $ADA and tokens) and one other set to control your staking activities (to participate in the protocol delegating your ADA to a stake pool or to earn rewards by operating your own stake pool). These 2 set of keys will allow you ...

The general equation of the Edwards curve is for Ed25519 a = -1, d = -121665/121666. The curve is also living in the prime field. The equation is I could not plot this equation in geograba, I guess due to the nature of the prime field over which the equation is defined.(?)
