Accounts in Findora
An account is a key/value store that is “owned” by an account public key. A hash of this public key is also the account’s unique ID. There is a single account entry on the ledger for each such unique ID. Accounts are not by default involved in the core transactional system for asset token transfers, which is based on the so-called “UTXO model”, although the address that owns the account is an address just like any other ledger address and can be used for asset transfers in the same way. Accounts are primarily used as an authenticated data store for the user and to link publicly queryable data about the user with Findora network activity.
