Meta-data UTXO and WIF to Hex
« on: March 03, 2017, 07:16:27 am »

I have two questions:

- Is it possible to add meta-data to each transaction meaning it is later possible to obtain that meta-data? The meta-data can for instance be a message.

- How to convert the WIF to Hex required my the API while signing a transaction? Because what I do is to take the WIF, make it to HEX and then remove the first byte and the last 5 bytes (it gives the same result as using http://lenschulwitz.com/base58 ). I believe I got the right key but the issued transactions are almost never confirmed (have decent transaction fee as well) Only once my transaction managed to make it into the blockchain.

Best regards,
