Franken address

Vcoincheck.io
Also known as a mangled-address, is a Cardano payment address that contains payment part and staking parts of different wallets/private-keys. This is made possible due to the unique design of addresses on Cardano. A Franken address allows users to separate their staking rewards into a separate wallet. Some application developers can leverage delegation righ...

On-chain message

Vcoincheck.io
is typically implemented using metadata transactions. Metadata can be attached to regular ADA transactions or other transactions on the Cardano blockchain. These metadata transactions can contain various types of information, including text, JSON data, or links to external content. On-chain messages are useful for Non-Fungible Tokens. Creators can use them ...

Stake address

Vcoincheck.io
Refers to a reward account, one of the two components that make up an address on Cardano. They are used in various operations related to rewards, such as delegating ADA to pools, checking the reward balance, etc. Anyone who owns a stake address also owns a stake in any associated funds linked to that address. It's worth noting that stake addresses cannot be ...

Stake key

Vcoincheck.io
Refers to a cryptographic key pair associated with a stake address. Stake keys give you access to any rewards held in the stake address, as well as the ability to delegate the wallet to a pool to earn staking rewards. Note that ADA holders can have multiple stake keys and can delegate their ADA to different stake pools simultaneously.

Payment address

Vcoincheck.io
Refers to an address used for receiving or sending ADA. Cardano uses a unique address format that differs from many other cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. It consists of two parts: the payment address and the stake address, which involves staking ADA to earn rewards. These addresses can start with "addr" and are case-insensitive. For example: ...

External address

Vcoincheck.io
refers to a Cardano address that is used for receiving ADA from external sources. These external sources can include other users, exchanges, or any entity that wishes to send ADA to your wallet. External addresses typically do not expire. User can continue to use the same external address to receive ADA for an extended period. However, for privacy reasons, ...

Policy ID

Vcoincheck.io
is a unique cryptographic fingerprint or hash generated from minting script. It serves as a way to uniquely identify and verify the policy associated with a specific native token or set of native tokens. This fingerprint allows users to validate that the policy for a token adheres to the predefined rules. Policy ID is an integral part of Cardano's multi-ass...

Asset name

Vcoincheck.io
refers to the names of native tokens created and managed on the Cardano blockchain. They can be common words, and creators can choose arbitrary names. Please note that assets with the same asset name are not necessarily fungible; fungibility depends on whether they have the same Policy ID.

Recovery phrase

Vcoincheck.io
also known as 'mnemonic phrases,' is a list of words (usually 12, 15, or 24 words). The words in a mnemonic phrase are derived from a random source of entropy and can be used to restore access to the wallet and its associated funds if the original wallet is lost, stolen, or becomes inaccessible. When you create a Cardano wallet, the wallet software typicall...

Orphaned block

Vcoincheck.io
known as a valid block that is rejected by the network because another block with the same height was added to the blockchain at nearly the same time. The reason a block becomes an orphan block on the Cardano blockchain is because the stake pool creating that block did not win in the Slot battle or Height battles. Additionally, a block becomes an orphan when...

VRF

Vcoincheck.io
Stands for "Verifiable Random Function", a cryptographic function that generates random numbers in a deterministic and verifiable manner. It's a crucial component for various applications, such as generating random numbers for lotteries and ensuring secure and unpredictable leader selection in proof-of-stake blockchain networks. On the Cardano blockchain, i...

Slot battles

Vcoincheck.io
Regarding the production of blocks on the Cardano blockchain, there can be instances when two pools create valid blocks in the same slot. Only one block can be added to the blockchain for each specific slot, so one of them has to be discarded (orphaned block). If a slot battle occurs, the winner is determined randomly. The pool operator has no influence ove...

Multi-account

Vcoincheck.io
According to the standard design of wallet addresses on the Cardano blockchain, an initial seed phrase can generate a very large number of accounts. These accounts are akin to individual sub-accounts within a bank account, enabling users to use them for various purposes such as donations, savings, spending, etc...

Multi-delegation

Vcoincheck.io
Referring to the design of wallet addresses on the Cardano blockchain that enables ADA holders to delegate to multiple pools. Numerous accounts can be created within one wallet, and each account has its own staking key for delegators to sign delegation transactions.

Height battles

Vcoincheck.io
In the context of the Cardano network, when nodes receive two valid blocks for a single slot, nodes will select the block with the higher slot number and orphan the other. The reason for this is that the SPOs do not propagate the block within the appropriate timeframe. To completely avoid blocks from getting orphaned in height battles, it is crucial for the...

Block propagation

Vcoincheck.io
Typically refers to the process of transmitting newly created blocks to all nodes on the network so that they can validate and add the block to their copy of the blockchain. Efficient block propagation is important for the overall performance and security of a blockchain network. On the Cardano blockchain, the propagation time should be less than 1 second t...
