Activating a Vanity Account on Xahau

How to activate a Vanity account on Xahau


You might remember when you purchased your vanity account, we configured a regular key account to sign for your vanity address then we disabled the master keys for it.

This meant that in order to sign transactions on your vanity address, you needed to have your regular key account imported into Xaman (formerly Xumm) with full access and you had to have your vanity address imported into Xaman in read only mode.

In Xaman, it would look something like this:

You may have noticed that the Vanity Account says, 'Full access" rather than 'Read only". That is because Xaman recognizes that the regular key account is present and in 'Full access" so it updates the Vanity account from 'Read only' to 'Full access'.

How it works

This processes will activate your vanity account on Xahau, activate it with 2 XAH and authorize Xaman to use the regular key account to sign for your vanity account on Xahau. It does this using an xApp called Xahau Import to create a Setregularkey transaction on the XRP Ledger, then create an Import transaction on the Xahau network. Signing both of these two transactions will duplicate your vanity account on Xahau, activate it with 2 XAH and authorize Xaman to use the regular key account to sign for your vanity account.

Getting started...

The following process has two requirements:

  • Your vanity account must imported into Xaman.

  • The regular key account (for your vanity account) must be imported into Xaman with full access.

As long as both of these requirements are met, you can follow these instructions.

1) Launch Xaman and switch to your vanity account.

2) Tap the following link, then scan the QR with Xaman to get the Xahau Import xApp.

3) Launch the Xahau Import xApp. You must accept the Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy before you can continue. Press the Next button when ready.

4) Make sure your vanity account address is displayed. If not, press the Change Account button and select your vanity account from the list. When ready, press the Next button to continue.

5) The xApp should detect that you have a Regular Key set for your vanity account. Press the Excute SetRegularkey button.

6) Slide to accept.

11) Tap the Xahau network.

10) Press the Import Account button.

11) You have to sign this transaction with your regular key account.

Press the Close button...and you're done! Congratulations!

How to check if it worked

If it worked, you should see your activated account on the Xahau network.

As well, when you check your sign account, it should look like this:

If it didn't work, you would see a screen like this for your vanity account.

and this for your signing account.
