Blockchain Transactions Steps


blockchain transactions steps

To perform a transaction, one has to:

  1. forge the transaction, saying at least
    1. from what address
    2. to what address
    3. how much
  2. sign the transaction with a private key corresponding to the from address,
  3. inject the transaction

When we gather those steps, we generally say we send the transaction.

This is the basic canvas. We can imagine all sorts of variant, with multi-signature, threshold signature or batching, but the concept remains the same anyway.
