Account name different after registration
« on: December 03, 2014, 02:46:44 PM »

Hi,

I was messing a bit around and i created a new user from a command line instance on a remote server like this:

wallet_create_account
then inserted an account name ex: name

I went to my wallet on my windows machine, added the contact with another name with
 wallet_add_contact_account anothername "BTSX....."
and registered the account i just created from the GUI selecting the name from the directory.

Well... now my new account is registered on the blockchain with anothername...

How's that possible???

as you didn't register it on the machine you created the key on .. the blockchain just cannot know about YOUR relation of name and key ..

you registered a local account <-> key pair .. which is totally fine ... in theory I can register any name given a public key..  only  the private key of the paying account is required ..

Ok.. didn't know that.
I thougt it was going to be the same as registering it on the other machine.

I'll transfer the founds next time.

Wouldn't be better to remove the register button from the directory GUI just to avoid the possible confusion?

That button has a very good reason for a very little audience :)
