The terms for adding the multisignature function to the Monero cryptocurrency have not yet been determined, but work in this direction is underway, and users are already offered the opportunity to test this option. This is reported by Merkle.
The multisignature function has been known for a long time to users of bitcoin and allows wallet owners to enhance their security by signing up of a third party to confirm transactions.
At the same time in Monero, this functionality has not been implemented so far, as its implementation is complicated by the structural features of the cryptocurrency. However, recent events suggest that at some stage this will still happen.
In particular, some time ago, changes were made to the records in the Monero repository on Github. So, earlier all files related to the multi-signature technology were accompanied by the "DO NOT MERGE" tag, but at the end of last week this tag was deleted.
Additionally, the developer with nickcname "Moneromoo" who is responsible for the implementation of the multi-signature asked the community to test and evaluate the new option.
According to the publication, the introduction of the multi-signature function will allow Monero to compete better with cryptocurrencies, in which this technology has already been integrated. In addition, a multi-signature can in the long run affect the state of affairs in the darknet. It is possible that a number of marketplaces can go along the way of abandoning bitcoin and wider adoption of Monero with its higher level of anonymity.
