encryption using multichain public key

+2 votes
I want to encrypt files (.pdf, .jpeg, .txt etc) using my multichain wattet address public key.


While retrieving those files (which are encrypted), I want to decrypt using my multichain wallet address private key.

There isn't currently a way to use MultiChain's built-in encryption to do this. So for now you would either need to implement this yourself (see the Electrum lightweight bitcoin client for examples), or you could use a more standard public key encryption scheme such as RSA. It's easy to associate a MultiChain address with another public key by published that key, signed by the address, into a stream, then retrieving it using liststreampublisheritems.
