What’s the difference between a single-signature wallet and a multi-signature wallet?

The standard transactions on cryptocurrency networks can be called single-signature transactions because they require only one digital signature for a transaction to be done. But for some special public chains like TRON, it has a multi-signature mechanism. The multi-signature gives every signature one weight, the signatures’ total weight of the transactions must reach the customized weight threshold before they can be executed. That means, an account can be managed by several private keys, and the transactions created in one account can be signed by serval private keys. For example, for a single-signature wallet, when you need to execute the transfer operation, you only need to sign once then the operation can be done. But for a multi-signature wallet, the transfer operation needs to be signed several times, the signature amount depends on the threshold.

What are the Multi-Signature Scams?

There are two common multi-signature scams.

The first is the scene at the beginning of this article. The scammers will share the Secret Recovery Phrase or Private Key with you and ask for your help. Ordinary, there is a large number of assets in the wallet, except for TRX. In this situation, users will be attracted by the assets and transfer TRX to this wallet. When they execute the transfer operation, they found that they can’t transfer. Then they finally realized they were scammed. At the same time, the scammers achieved their purpose, which is to get the TRX you deposited.

The second common multi-sig scam is the leakage of the private key or secret recovery phrase. If you’ve shared the private key or secret recovery phrase with the scammers. The scammers can use your private key or secret recovery phrase to change your account’s permission without notifying you. When you transfer the assets to the wallet and want to transfer them out, you will find that your wallet became a multi-signature wallet and your assets can’t be controlled by yourself anymore. Then, the scammers can transfer your assets immediately and you can’t do anything!
