I created a stellar wallet to explore the feature, for now I’d like to remove it from my profile and keybase client, how would I do this?

I would also like to see this, Check out my sigchain, None of the wallets show as revoked. I do not want a stellar wallet anymore.

Most likely won't happen.

Stellar investors invested in Keybase.

I deleted my account and uninstalled for this very reason.

If you select the "start from scratch" option on the website this will remove the stellar account from your profile and local client. If you do this you will have to re-sign every linked account you want to keep. I recommend never linking any external accounts to keybase since the link can never be broken once it is in the sigchain, even if you never post the verification signatures.

What? You can't unlink an e.g. github account either? What if somebody hacks my github account and I need to create a new one and tell everybody to use the new one? Or if I just want to stop using github for whatever reason? Should this issue perhaps be widened to unlink anything, not just stellar wallets?

You can say "this github account is no longer mine" but what you can't do is hide the fact that they were linked in the past. And in the case of stellar accounts you can't even do that.

This may be becoming a legal issue in India. I sent my friend a small amount in XLM and they wondered if it's legal and reached a conclusion that it's legal for now, but Dealing in Cryptocurrency in India Could Soon Land You in Jail for 10 Years.

I don't know if India is going to enforce it, but in case it is, I guess Indian users will have to remove their Keybase accounts to not risk jail time unless this issue is fixed.

I have restarted my account from scratch. Very disappointed I had to do this.

I think I see how to do this with the existing tools. I haven't tested this, though, since I don't actually want to revoke my keys.

If someone doesn't mind possibly messing up their account, and wants to test this out, here's what you might try:

  1. Go to https://keybase.io/YOUR_USERNAME/sigchain
  2. Find "added Stellar key" and click on it
  3. In the bottom of the righthand column, there should be a URL with a signature ID, like sig/get.json?sig_id=efa0d6a1...
  4. Use the CLI to revoke that signature ID: keybase sigs revoke <sig-id>

Will this work? Will it mess up other things? I don't know! But it would be cool if someone tried it out and reported back.

Great idea! Doesn't work 😭.

$ keybase sigs revoke "$(keybase sigs list -v -f stellar | awk '{print $2}')"
▶ ERROR sig not owned by user

Ah well. Thanks for trying! Perhaps while the signature is cryptographically under the user's control, they haven't implemented stellar address revocation on the server side. Perhaps there's a filter and access check there so they can't be induced to publish arbitrary junk into the public record.

Good news, though—it sounds like the requested feature is in the works (see very end of comment).

For those who generate Stellar keys and then change their mind, not wanting them, we'll add the feature to delete all of them.
