Noob question - can you send arbitrary information with a transaction?

+1 vote

I just found multichain today and have done a little Googling and don't think that I've found an answer yet. I've seen on other distributed ledgers that there are ways you can send data or messages along with a transaction, and use the protocol as a means of sending a "notarized" message to someone. Is this possible with multichain? If so, how? I came across another product of multichain's, coinspark: but don't see how multichain and coinspark integrate, if it does, are there any "Getting Started" docs that talk about how to use a newly created multichain blockchain with coinspark to send messages in transactions?. Or is coinspark something that doesn't work with multichain?  Thanks.

CoinSpark and MultiChain are unrelated products. But you can add metadata to any transaction in MultiChain - see the *metadata API calls documented here:
