Documentation

Overview

The crypto package is used to provide functionality to several keypair types. The current supported types are secp256k1 and sr25519.

Keypairs

The keypair interface is used to bridge the different types of crypto formats. Every Keypair has both a Encode and Decode function that allows writing and reading from keystore files. There is also the Address and PublicKey functions that allow access to public facing fields.
