I've been trying to use the stellar-archivist command 'dumpxdr' to unpack transactions files that are stored in the stellar core history

However the in the results asset codes and addresses appear in an unusual format:

"Asset": {
                                    "Type": 1,
                                    "AlphaNum4": {
                                        "AssetCode": [
                                            66,
                                            84,
                                            67,
                                            0
                                        ],
                                        "Issuer": {
                                            "Type": 0,

                                    },

I would like to see it as a regular stellar address (56 letters, starts with G)

  • Start with 32 bytes
  • Add a byte of 0x30 as prefix 'G' (now you have 33 bytes)
  • Calculate the checksum (two bytes)
  • Add the checksum as suffix (now you have 35 bytes)
  • Convert them to base32
  • That's your public key

Apply the same but using 'S' (byte 0x90) as prefix for secret keys

  • Which type of checksum? Is it CRC32? If so, doesn't that provide four bytes? – Zhami Feb 27 '18 at 14:01
  • Ah, I believe the checksum is CRC16-CCITT (based on looking at the Python code referenced below). – Zhami Feb 27 '18 at 14:38
  • ChecksumXmodem from what I've read – Kuyawa Feb 27 '18 at 22:38

Found an answer using the stellar python library

from stellar_base import utils
x = bytearray(Ed25519 array here)  
account = utils.encode_check('account',x)

However I still have no idea what exactly is happening here, so I would appreciate any answer regardless :)
