I understand it’s possible to set the PPC wallet to a “semi-unlocked” state for mining PoS blocks only.
How does this keep your wallet more secure than having it unlocked?
Is the same private key used to sign and move a PPC balance between transactions on the blockchain used to verify ownership of coin age for mining purposes? Surely this is a security concern for the machine mining. i.e. someone who gains access to that computer mining PoS blocks can access the private key and therefore a user’s balance? Is it possible to have two linked private keys - one to sign transactions and one to sign blocks? Then anyone can leave their PoS mining (minting) private key exposed as all an attacker can do is sign for a PoS block and allocate all that block reward over to that user. Not sure if this is actually a problem so I may be solving something that’s not an issue. Can someone please clarify.
Are the coins used in PoS mining actually mined to a transaction in the new block? Thereby spending their coin age.
