Radium SmartChain/Record A Text Note

Recording a SmartChain Text NoteEdit

This tutorial begins assuming you have the SmartChain (version 2.4) downloaded and installed already with a connected wallet and a registered username. You will also need Radon to support the Publishing of the Text Note - the current rate is 1 Radon per 40 bytes of text. For information regarding registration or obtaining Radon, please visit the [Registration Walkthrough] and the [Radium Decay Walkthrough]

1.) Open the SmartChain and select your username. Then select the "Prove Something" Button as circled below, which brings you to the Known Text Notes Screen shown in Step 2.

2.) Select the "Secure Text Note in Blockchain" and the "Craft Your Text Note" Window will appear.

3.) The Text Note window will auto-populate your username as the publishers name. You can apply a title for your text note and fill out the text note you need recorded. Once you have your note crafted to your liking, you can run the built-in Cost Calculator to get an idea of the exact cost and compression ratio that will be applied to your note. When you are satisfied with your note and costs, select "Place in Blockchain!"

4.) Two confirmation windows will appear. One is to confirm the title and the user you are acting as, and the other is to confirm the costs that are going to be applied to the balances of your SmartChain user account. These are your last chances to review your entries before publishing to the SmartChain. Please review closely.

5.) Upon submission the note will not immediately show up in the SmartChain. As previously noted, it runs 4 blocks behind the Radium Blockchain so you will need to wait a few minutes for your text note to appear. When it appears you can inspect the published text note and select "View Document" to review the published note.

6.) Inspecting the note shows the exact time and date of the recording, as well as the User who recorded it, what block of the SmartChain the note was published in, and the exact text that was entered.
