What is a Method Signature in Blockchain?

A method signature refers to a unique identifier for a function in code. It is used to describe the function’s name and its parameter types.

Role of Method Signatures

  1. Function Identification: Method signatures uniquely identify functions within a smart contract, allowing for the correct execution of a desired operation.
  2. Contract Manifest: Method signatures are used to generate a contract manifest, which is a list of all the public functions in a smart contract.
  3. Interoperability: Method signatures enable different smart contracts and external systems to interact with each other by providing a standard way to reference functions.
