How to set up a multi-sig wallet on Solana in less than 5 minutes using Mean Protocol

Setting up a multi-sig wallet is quick, fast, easy, and no coding experience required!

The concept of multi-sig is nothing new to the web3 space. Investors, VC’s, startups, founders, co-founders, DAOs and even reliable NFT and Metaverse teams utilize multi-sig wallets as a core part of operations, safety and to mitigate risks that arise from either internal or external players with a bad intention towards a particular person or a project as a whole.

A multi-signature wallet (“multi-sig” for short) is a cryptocurrency wallet that requires two or more private keys to sign and send a transaction. This type of digital signature makes it possible for two or more users to sign documents as a group. Co-owners and signatories to a shared multi-sig wallet are known as “co-payers.”

The number of signatures required to sign a transaction is dependent on the kind of wallet. It may be lower or equal to the number of co-payers of the wallet.

Multi-sig wallets operate similarly to traditional bank vaults. The technical components behind a bank vault makes it so that more than one key is required to open it. As a result, multi-sig wallets are often called vaults.

Multisig addresses can be used for different circumstances, but most concern security.

The use of a multisig wallet enables users to create an additional layer of security for their funds. If one of the keys is compromised, the user can be assured that their funds are still safe.

Multisig technology also deters malware infections and phishing attacks due to the hacker likely only having access to a single key or device.

Imagine a business partnership between several individuals. A multisig wallet can be used to control access to their joint company funds.

They may choose to set up a 4-of-6 wallet where each individual holds one key, and none of them can misuse the funds or gain access. This means only decisions that are unanimously agreed upon by the majority will be made.

A 2-of-3 multisig wallet can allow escrow transactions between two parties (A and B). The transaction also includes a third party © as a mutually trusted arbiter if anything goes wrong.

Normally, cryptocurrencies are stored in a standard, single-key address, meaning that whoever possesses the correct private key is granted access to the funds. This means that only one key is needed to sign transactions and transfer the coins at will, without further authorization.

Although using a single-key address is faster and easier than a multisig one, it presents several issues, particularly regarding security. For example, with a single key, the funds are only protected by a single point of failure.

Cybercriminals are constantly developing new phishing techniques to steal the funds of cryptocurrency users.
