What is Sporran?
The Sporran wallet allows you to manage your digital identities and sign
transactions with these digital identities on the KILT blockchain.
Therefore, you can:
Create a private/public key pair that represents your digital
identity and a backup phrase for recovery
Create a password for each digital identity in order to access it
Check balances of your KILT Coins read from the blockchain or
Display the address of your digital identity via a string and a QR
code e.g. for copying or showing it to others for a transfer of
KILT Coins to your digital identity
Initiate and sign transactions with these digital identities to be
processed by the KILT blockchain
Use these digital identities with services that allow their usage e.g.
to initiate transactions and sign these transactions through
The data generated in and for your digital identities is stored
locally on your device. The balances displayed are based on the
information currently stored on the KILT blockchain.
Please make sure you select a safe password and remember it.
If you forget your password or you are using a new device, you
can recover access to your digital identity only with your backup
IMPORTANT: If you lose your password and backup phrase, you will no longer
have access to your digital identity or the assets belonging to that
No one will be able to restore it for you. We have no knowledge of
your data, passwords or backup phrase.
Please write down your backup phrase correctly and in the correct order
and store it safely. Write it down with paper and pen and put it somewhere that no one
else can find and read it. Store your backup phrase safely because it is
your unique access to your digital identity(s). If the backup phrase
falls into the hands of others, they will have full access to your
digital identity and be able to sign transactions on your behalf –
and on other devices – even without knowing your password.
If you lose your backup phrase you will not be able to recover your
for example when your device breaks or is lost.
B.T.E. BOTLabs Trusted Entity GmbH (hereinafter referred to as
"BTE") is liable for damages that are based on an intentional or
grossly negligent breach of duty by BTE, its legal representatives
or various agents.
In the event of a breach of essential contractual duties, BTE shall
only be liable for the contractually typical, foreseeable damage if
this was simply cause by negligence. Significant contractual
obligations are those whose fulfilment enables the proper execution
of the contract in the first place and whose compliance you can
regularly rely on.
The limitation of the two preceding paragraphs also apply to the
legal representatives and various agents of BTE, if claims are
asserted directly against them. The liability limitations resulting
from the two preceding paragraphs do not apply insofar as BTE
fraudulently concealed the defect or assumed a guarantee for the
quality of Sporran.
Liability for culpable injury to life, limb and health and liability
under Product Liability Act remain unaffected.
Any additional claims for damages are excluded.
The following risk information contains a list of risks associated
with the use of the Sporran wallet. The list is not exhaustive. It is not
excluded that further unknown or unpredictable risks exist.
Loss of backup phrase and password will result in a complete loss of
accessibility of the Sporran wallet in question.
At first: we have had two different security expert companies carry out a security
check (audit), each of which came to the conclusion that the Sporran
(software) is secure according to the current state of the art. But:
the further development in the information technology and other
computing sectors pose a threat to password security and integrity
Sporran is installed on your system as a browser extension. For the
security of your password and backup phrase, it is essential that your
system is not compromised with malware. Please make sure that this
is the case, because malware running unnoticed in the background,
for example a key tracker, represents a major security risk for you.
If you suspect someone knows your password or found your backup phrase
or if you are just uncertain about it, immediately open a new digital
identity with a different backup phrase, transfer your assets to the
new digital identity and make sure to clear and terminate usage of
your compromised digital identities.
Sporran communicates with the KILT blockchain and depends on its
functionality. Errors or dysfunctionalities, including failure of the KILT
blockchain or the technical ecosystem in which it lives, may
adversely affect the Sporran.
Sporran, and in particular the underlying software application, may be
the subject of hacking or other malicious interference by
unauthorised third parties resulting in the loss, theft or other
violation of data.
Because Sporran is built on open-source software, there is a risk
that a third party may unconsciously or knowingly incorporate errors
leading to potential adverse consequences for the usability and
functionality of the Sporran.
Communication via internet-based systems is fundamentally
susceptible to data/information being read out and possibly even
changed. We have no influence on which processes (now and in the
future) run in the background of the web browser used (Chrome,
