Question regarding address types

+1 vote
We have two situations:

1. We create a wallet address (user) inside seed node and we grant permission to that wallet address.

2. We add new node to chain and grant permissions from seed node to that new node.

The question is:

Is there any difference inside decoded transaction JSON between those two transastions. How can we know from decoded transaction in second situation that it represents adding new node to chain.

We would like to know if there is any new node using decoded transaction, so we can call "getpeerinfo" when we find such transaction. That transaction would be a trigger for us to do that.

No blockchain transaction reveals the node which owns the address that the transaction represents, so you can't ascertain this directly from the transaction. However you could always add some metadata to a permissions transaction to note that it's for a new node, then other nodes can look out for that metadata. For more information take a look at:
