The register command creates a transaction that registers a public key on the network for use as a push key. The public key can be provided as an argument to the command or a key on the keystore can be registered by specifying the key’s address or keystore index.


kit pk register [flags] <publicKey|keyId>
kit pk register [flags] <publicKey|keyId>
-f, --fee float Set transaction fee to pay to the network
-c, --feeCap float Set the maximum fee the key is allowed to spend on fees
-h, --help help for register
-n, --nonce uint Set the next nonce of the signing account signing
--pass string Specify the passphrase of a chosen push key account
-s, --scopes strings Set one or more push key scopes
-u, --signing-key string Address or index of local account to use for signing transaction
-p, --signing-key-pass string Passphrase for unlocking the signing account


  • publicKey|keyId - Provide the base58 encoded public key or get the public key of a key on the keystore by its key address or index.


  • -c, --feeCap - Specify the amount of fee that can be spent by the public key from the signing key account.
  • --pass - Provide the passphrase that will be used to unlock the key matching key-id.
  • -s, --scopes - Prevent the key from being used outside a set of repositories and namespaces.
  • -h, --help - Prints out a help message.

  • -p, --signing-key-pass - The passphrase that will be used to unlock the signing key.


  • Send a transaction that registers the public key of a key at index 2 on the keystore.
