Sending a message
Note: Messaging requires a node running Nxt version 0.5.6 or later.
- With your Nxt software running, browse to https://127.0.0.1:7876/message.html (or https://localhost:7876/message.html )
- The Nxt "Messages" screen will appear
- Complete the form with the following entries:
- Recipient: The account that will receive the message
- Message: The message you would like to send (up to 1000 characters)
- Note: This message is transmitted in plain text. If you want to send it securely, you must encrypt it yourself, and make sure the recipient knows how to decrypt it. The "messaging" feature is easy and ope-ended on purpose and other developers will create tools for sending encrypted messages and data later.
