Sirius Digial Asset (SDA)

Sirius Digital Assets (called Asset in the Xarcade Wallet) are part of what makes the Smart Asset System unique and flexible. They are fixed assets on the Sirius Chain that can represent a set of multiple identical things that do not change.

An Asset could be a token, but it could also be a collection of more specialized assets such as reward points, shares of stock, signatures, status flags, votes, or even other currencies.

Namespace

Namespaces allow you to create an on-chain unique place for your business and your assets on the Sirius Chain.

A namespace starts with a name that you choose, similar to an internet domain name. The name must appear as unique in the network, and may have a maximum length of 64 characters. Allowed characters are a, b, c, …, z, 0, 1, 2, …, 9, _ , -.

An account can link a registered name (namespace or subnamespace) with an account or an SDA identifier.

ProximaX Sirius Wallet

An account is a key pair (private and public key) associated with a mutable state stored on the Sirius Chain. In other words, you have a deposit box, which only you can modify with your private key.

Think of an account as container for assets. It can be used to hold XPX or other SDAs, whether they are tokens or specialized assets.

Moreover, Sirius Chain accounts can also represent non-fungible assets that must be unique and updatable: a package to be shipped, a house deed or a document to be notarized.

Each account has a unique address. You will normally share the derived address instead, as it is shorter and gathers more information.

For this testnet exercise we will be calling this the Sirius Testnet Wallet on Xarcade as it is needed for the testnet blockchaining of your game.
