1. Account Control Overview

Account security is possibly the leading issue with the use of crypto-currency: how can a user 
secure digital funds so that they are completely safe from theft, given the increasing 
sophistication of malware and hacking techniques. Account control enhances the security of 
accounts and ensures that only specific people have access to funds, under specific conditions. 
Multisignature (multisig) for instance refers to requiring more than one key to authorize a 
transaction. This enables users to create accounts that can only transact with the approval of 
holders of specified Assets or Currencies, or to make transactions subject to Votes on spendings.
Multisignature (often called multisig) is a form of technology used to add additional security 
and for XIN transactions. Multisignature require additional users to sign (approve) a transaction 
before it can be added onto the block chain.  Phasing is another feature that allows certain 
phasing-safe transactions to be created with conditional deferred execution based on the result 
of a vote, on a list of linked transactions or on the revelation of a secret; or simply with 
unconditional deferred execution.
