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.

Transaction Options

  • -f, --fee - The number of coins to pay as transaction fee. It will be deducted from the signer's account.

  • -n, --nonce - The next nonce of the signer's account (current nonce + 1).

  • -u, --signing-key - The address or index of a key that will be used to sign the transaction.

  • -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.

kit pk register -f="0.1" -u=1 "2"
  • Create a transaction that registers the public key 47yLa42fJsRxGi2G...obSJ9aRjM6j2sBerT4iqef and limits its scope to a repository called myrepo and a namespace called namespace/.

kit pk register "47yLa42fJsRxGi2GMsdnTqHaRMXUWobSJ9aRjM6j2sBerT4iqef" \
    -f="0.1" \
    -u=1 \
    -s="myrepo" \
