In the signers block of an Account response:

"signers": [
    "weight": 1,
    "type": "ed25519_public_key"

Under what circumstances would key and public_key differ?

1 Answer 1


They wouldn't necessarily differ, but public_key is deprecated, most likely since we have other types of signers now, in addition to just ed25519 keys (which are public keys).
