Create the stream as follows (assuming multichain-cli on Linux):

create stream [stream-name] '{"restrict":"onchain", "salted":true}'

This will ensure all data is published off-chain, and that every hash is salted. If you also want to make the stream write-restricted, substitute this in the appropriate place:

oh i see.. may i know what is the purpose of adding salt?
It means the on-chain hash for the stream item data reveals no information at all, not even the fact that two items have identical data.
