The networkIdentifier parameter

The new parameter networkIdentifier is introduced with Lisk SDK version 3.x.

It is now required to provide the networkIdentifier of the specific network when creating a transaction. This eliminates the possibility of transaction replays on different networks.

The networkIdentifier is required for creating a transaction object.

The network identifier is a hash value based on the following parameters:

const HelloTransaction = require('../hello_transaction');
const { EPOCH_TIME } = require('@liskhq/lisk-constants');
const {getNetworkIdentifier} = require('@liskhq/lisk-cryptography');

const networkIdentifier = getNetworkIdentifier(
    "23ce0366ef0a14a91e5fd4b1591fc880ffbef9d988ff8bebf8f3666b0c09597d",
    "Lisk",
);

const getTimestamp = () => {
    // check config file or curl localhost:4000/api/node/constants to verify your epoc time
    const millisSinceEpoc = Date.now() - Date.parse(EPOCH_TIME);
    const inSeconds = ((millisSinceEpoc) / 1000).toFixed(0);
    return  parseInt(inSeconds);
};

const tx = new HelloTransaction({
    asset: {
        hello: 'world',
    },
    networkIdentifier: networkIdentifier,
    timestamp: getTimestamp(),
});

tx.sign('creek own stem final gate scrub live shallow stage host concert they');

console.log(tx.stringify());
process.exit(0);

Updated genesis block for devnet

Due to the changes that have been introduced for the structure of transaction objects, the genesis block and it’s transactions were generated newly for Lisk SDK version 3.0.

New genesis account

Name Address Passphrase Description

Genesis Account

11237980039345381032L

creek own stem final gate scrub live shallow stage host concert they

The genesis account holds all the tokens that are created in the devnet genesis block. It is utilized to vote for the forging genesis delegates in a convenient way during development.
