Account Control

Control the transactions on your account with the Account Control feature. Set specific conditions that must be matched before a transaction is completed. You don’t need a smart contract to do this — just use the wallet interface.

Account Funding Monitor

The Account Funding Monitor is a server side component which automatically transfers IGNIS or other child chain tokens, asset or currency from a funding account to one or more recipient accounts when the amount held by the recipient account drops below a set threshold. This is useful to make sure the recipient account always has enough tokens to do transactions, while avoiding keeping too much tokens in it, in case it gets compromised.

Account Leasing

Account Leasing allows a user to lease its forging power to another account for a fixed period of time. This feature enables the creation of forging pools, where the forging power of multiple users is combined to increase the chance of generating a block. Account leasing is also relevant if a user wants to take part in the forging process without having to keep a node running 24/7.

Account Properties

The Account Properties feature allows accounts to be tagged with arbitrary name/value metadata. Users can add such metadata to their own accounts, or to other accounts. This is a very convenient way to provide additional information about your account (e.g. email or social media handle), or endorse another account as having specific permissions or other attributes (e.g. businesses can tag accounts as KYC verified at different levels, or as having reached certain status as a regular customer). Account properties are global, but must be set using the Ignis child chain.

Aliases

The Alias System can be used to define mapping of names (“aliases”), unique within each child chain, to arbitrary strings or pieces of data, implementing a decentralized on-blockchain naming system. Much like the DNS, such aliases can be used to map a domain name to IP address, hold the current value of some important publicly announced data (e.g. the latest Ardor release checksum), or simply be used as an easy-to-remember nickname for the account that owns the alias. Each child chain has its own namespace of aliases, but only the Ignis aliases can be used as a shortcut for logging in or as nicknames for transaction recipients.
