Label

Externally Controlled Account

Description

One of the two main types of accounts on Ethereum, an external account is an account controlled by an external actor (as opposed to a contract account). The unique identifier of an external account is its address. It consists of the rightmost 160 bits of the keccak 256 hash of its public key (example: 0x1a1138875dAB9E0AC8b0fd4a37EEAC5eb26B870B). There is only one way external accounts can actively change the state of the blockchain. They can be used to send a valid transaction to the Ethereum blockchain. The transaction can be directed towards other external accounts or towards contract accounts. Since the private key is needed for sending, a valid transaction can only be created by the person or entity controlling the private key of the external account. Besides being target of transactions, external accounts can also be the target of contract messages, block beneficiary rewards, uncle beneficiary rewards or payouts of contract accounts that have self-destructed.

Usage

Instances of :ExternalAccount can have the following properties:

PROPERTYTYPEDESCRIPTIONRANGE
From class :ExternalAccount
:accountPublicKey owl:DatatypeProperty The public key of an external account. xsd:hexBinary
From class :Account
:address owl:DatatypeProperty A 160-bit identifier for accounts. xsd:hexBinary
:hasCurrentState owl:InverseFunctionalProperty This property relates an EthOn concept to its most current state. :AccountState
:hasState owl:InverseFunctionalProperty This property relates an EthOn concept to a state. It is inverse functional because a state can only belong to one single EthOn concept. :AccountState
:sends owl:ObjectProperty Relates a an account to a message it sends. :Msg
From class :AccountConcept
:AccountDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all data properties that are specific to an account. owl:Thing
From class :EthOnConcept
:simpleDefinition owl:AnnotationProperty This property relates an EthOn concept to a definition in Simple English, intended especially for non-technical users. owl:Thing
:suggestedStringRepresentation owl:AnnotationProperty This property relates an EthOn concept with a suggested string representation. It can be used to give the term a name, e.g. in program code. owl:Thing
From class owl:Thing
:AccountObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn account object properties owl:Thing
:BlockObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn block object properties owl:Thing
:EthOnAnnotationProperty owl:AnnotationProperty Superclass of all EthOn specific annotation properties. owl:Thing
:EthOnDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all data properties specific to EthOn. owl:Thing
:EthOnObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn object properties owl:Thing
:MessageObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn message object properties. owl:Thing
:NetworkDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all EthOn network data properties. owl:Thing
:NetworkObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn network object properties. owl:Thing
:StateObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn state object properties. owl:Thing
:createsPostMsgState owl:FunctionalProperty Relates a message to the global state of the system after all the message has been executed. owl:Thing
:hasAccountStorage owl:FunctionalProperty Relates an account to the Merkle Patricia tree that encodes its storage contents at a certain account state. This property is Functional because an account state can have only one instance of account storage and inverse functional because an account storage can have only one associated account state. :AccountStorage
:hasTransition owl:ObjectProperty Relates a state to a transition (i.e. a message) that creates a new state. owl:Thing
:partOf owl:ObjectProperty This is a general relation to express part of relationships. The classic study of parts and wholes, mereology, has three axioms: 1. the part-of relation is Transitive - "parts of parts are parts of the whole" - If A is part of B and B is part of C, then A is part of C Reflexive - "Everything is part of itself" - A is part of A Antisymmetric - "Nothing is a part of its parts" - if A is part of B and A != B then B is not part of A. owl:Thing
