Identity and Provenance

The Hypermedia protocol enforces that all content is signed by a creator's identity. This identity is generated from random data, and contains two parts:

Private Key / Mnemonic

The secret part of your Hypermedia identity. This is just 128 bits of random data, but we represent it as 12 words.
The Mintter app will help you generate an identity when you start up for the first time.
This is an example private key, with the mnemonic representation:
.. add example mnemonics here..

Public Account ID

The Account ID is the "public key" that corresponds to the secret mnemonics. We represent the public key as a URL, for example: example id here..
