Once you've instantiated your wallet in an unlocked state using one of the previously discussed methods, you can sign a message with wallet.sign. Below is a full example of how to sign and recover a message.

        let mut rng = StdRng::seed_from_u64(2322u64);
        let mut secret_seed = [0u8; 32];
        rng.fill_bytes(&mut secret_seed);

        let secret = secret_seed
            .expect("The seed size is valid");

        // Create a wallet using the private key created above.
        let wallet = WalletUnlocked::new_from_private_key(secret, None);

        let message = Message::new("my message".as_bytes());
        let signature = wallet.sign(message).await?;

        // Check if signature is what we expect it to be
        assert_eq!(signature, Signature::from_str("0x8eeb238db1adea4152644f1cd827b552dfa9ab3f4939718bb45ca476d167c6512a656f4d4c7356bfb9561b14448c230c6e7e4bd781df5ee9e5999faa6495163d")?);

        // Recover address that signed the message
        let recovered_address = signature.recover(&message)?;

        assert_eq!(wallet.address().hash(), recovered_address.hash());

        // Verify signature
        signature.verify(&recovered_address, &message)?;

Adding Signers to a transaction builder

Every signed resource in the inputs needs to have a witness index that points to a valid witness. Changing the witness index inside an input will change the transaction ID. This means that we need to set all witness indexes before finally signing the transaction. Previously, the user had to make sure that the witness indexes and the order of the witnesses are correct. To automate this process, the SDK will keep track of the signers in the transaction builder and resolve the final transaction automatically. This is done by storing signers until the final transaction is built.

Below is a full example of how to create a transaction builder and add signers to it.

Note: When you add a Signer to a transaction builder, the signer is stored inside it and the transaction will not be resolved until you call build()!

        let secret = SecretKey::from_str(
        let wallet = WalletUnlocked::new_from_private_key(secret, None);

        // Set up a transaction
        let mut tb = {
            let input_coin = Input::ResourceSigned {
                resource: CoinType::Coin(Coin {
                    amount: 10000000,
                    owner: wallet.address().clone(),

            let output_coin = Output::coin(


        // Add `Signer` to the transaction builder

Signing a built transaction

If you have a built transaction and want to add a signature, you can use the sign_with method.

    tx.sign_with(&wallet, provider.chain_id()).await?;
