MMoSP003E- steem-python customize a tools for change keys

in hive-180932 •  last month 

Generally, we register our account from the official website, which is relatively safe.

After the keys is lost (stolen), you can find to help recover.

Of course, being able to recover means being changed by others. However, in the steem mechanism, if the last keys cannot be provided, it cannot be recovered.

Therefore, no matter where our account is obtained, change the keys twice in a row, and keep the keys changed twice, then we can only recover the keys ourselves, and others can't recover the keys.

We usually login to and change the keys in the official online wallet, but it's more troublesome. It's better to change it directly with the command line tool
