This guide is awesome and explains "signing a message" in very easy way and in detail..i wonder why this thread is not a sticky Cheesy
@shorena Have you considered talking to admin to make this thread a sticky so that no newbee look here and there asking for this "what is signing a message" question?

There was a thread asking for it to be stickied, yes. The answer was something along the lines of "we cant sticky all good threads", maybe an overview thread could be stickied. That wasnt stickied either. Just keep spreading it around Smiley

Im not really here, its just your imagination.

hi shorena,Can you help me restore my account has been stolen ?
name: Altynbekova
btc address: 16DGWwDyKcd4jsig7ehvTkeLmVTmebduAy
email: lalurizkirno@gmail.com
and everything has been replaced.

No, only admins can do that. They usually require a signed message though. If the guides above are not helping, let me know which wallet software/service you use. I can check whether they allow signing and make a guide is possible.

Also if people out there are reading this if you have not already stake a BTC address in meta.  It helps if you need to recover an account ever, as you have a address you can easily point to.

But be warned it can be a slow process.  Admin's are busy so can be take a bit.  And if stolen where 2 claim it's theirs it will take even longer I'm guessing.

Until this thread I wasn't aware we could use the forum address spot to prove ownership.

you have properly been too busy posting all over the place to get signature rewards instead of reading and educating yourself about the basics....

He could not read Meta.  If you don't read meta you will not see near as many of these.  Meta is full of them as it sadly happens to often it seems.   I suggest people to read Meta there really is some good info in it sometimes.

Make sure to stake a address in meta if you have not.  It could save you or others.

Exactly. Most people don't read the Meta forums, just like they don't read the Legal and etc. Most of the stuff in those isn't of real use to many people.

Has anyone else been having issues with verifying signed messages through Blocktrial?  I tried to verify someone else's message and I turned them down for a loan because of it.  Then I tried another person and got the same message.  So I tried my own, knowing it is right and it still did not verify.

Do you have an example? Sometimes people use specific symbols that are not as common and are not tested. If you can reproduce a valid signature that fails for blocktrail we can contact them for a fix. They are usually very responsive. You can also try to crosscheck with Chain Query.

Thanks a lot I have to say! I saw some messages like in OP quite often but I don't really know how to do that and what's that for but now as I am getting into running business to prove that there's nothing scammy I have to sign message and this helps me a lot! (It's kinda weird for a senior member for not knowing how to sign a message I think Grin but yep all I do is send and receive)

Verification is very similar to signing with electrum. Put the message, the address and the signature in place and hit the verify button. When the signature is correct a small pop up comes up with "signature verified".

I still have not done the pictures for those, shame on me.

This was so nice to read, I understood everything on how to sign a message except one thing???

Where do you find the signature Huh Couldn't find out. I can sign a message now but where is signature add  Huh

Sorry if this sound stupid, but I am not very familiar with BTC yet, although I have a decent amount sitting in my wallet.

For electrum the signature will show up as soon as hit the OK button on the password entering window. Its marked as blue in the picture[1] in the OP.

Similarly for multibit classic the signature shows up after you hit "sign message" and is marked as blue here[2].
