URI Formatting

selsta edited this page Jan 2, 2019 · 5 revisions

URIs are useful for easy payment solutions, especially for the use of merchandising purposes by generating QR codes from the specification-regulated protocol scheme described below.

Its syntax follows RFC 3986. See URI scheme for explanation. Spaces must be x-www-urlencoded as %20.

TX Scheme

monero: [address <string>]

The following parameters can be optionally appended to the resulting URI:

Parameter Type Kind Description
address String hierarch. The raw address (or the openalias?).
tx_payment_id String ? The proposed payment ID of the transaction.
recipient_name String ? The proposed contact name of the recipient.
tx_amount Float query The proposed amount of the transaction in atomic currency units.
tx_description String fragment Describes the transaction which should be initiated.

Thus the resulting URI may look something like this:

monero:46BeWrHpwXmHDpDEUmZBWZfoQpdc6HaERCNmx1pEYL2rAcuwufPN9rXHHtyUA4QVy66qeFQkn6sfK8aHYjA3jk3o1Bv16em?tx_amount=239.39014&tx_description=donation

Wallet Definition Scheme

The following scheme is proposed as a means of describing wallets. This scheme may be used for restoring.

monero_wallet: [address <string>]

Only one of mnemonic_seed and (spend_key,view_key) may/must be specified.

Parameter Type Description
address String Raw (95-character) address
spend_key Hex String Private spend key of a wallet.
view_key Hex String Private view key of a wallet.
mnemonic_seed String URL Encoded seed to restore a deterministic wallet.
height Long Block height when the wallet was created.

The resulting URI for a wallet may look like this:

monero_wallet:467iotZU5tvG26k2xdZWkJ7gwATFVhfbuV3yDoWx5jHoPwxEi4f5BuJQwkP6GpCb1sZvUVB7nbSkgEuW8NKrh9KKRRga5qz?spend_key=029c559cd7669f14e91fd835144916009f8697ab5ac5c7f7c06e1ff869c17b0b&view_key=afaf646edbff3d3bcee8efd3383ffe5d20c947040f74e1110b70ca0fbb0ef90d

or

monero_wallet:467iotZU5tvG26k2xdZWkJ7gwATFVhfbuV3yDoWx5jHoPwxEi4f5BuJQwkP6GpCb1sZvUVB7nbSkgEuW8NKrh9KKRRga5qz?seed=python%20runway%20gossip%20lymph%20hills%20karate%20ruined%20innocent%20ought%20dual%20shipped%20shipped%20sushi%20pyramid%20guys%20entrance%20obedient%20natural%20kiwi%20wobbly%20vixen%20wipeout%20template%20typist%20innocent&height=12345676
