Migrate to the Hiro web wallet

If you created your account before mid May 2022, you were used to using "Blockstack Connect" to sign in to your account. Follow this guide to migrate your account to the new Hiro web wallet and continue using Sigle.

caution

Please read this guide carefully before deciding which approach you want to go with.

Option 1 - Create a new account / use your already existing Hiro account

note

This is the recommended approach if you interact with other Stacks apps in the ecosystem.

Pros

  • Use the Hiro wallet extension and access other Stacks apps
  • Use a .btc domain / register a new free .id.stx subdomain

Cons

  • You have to manually migrate your Gaia content from the old to the new account. If you want us to provide a tool for this, vote for this feature so we can prioritise it.

Guide

  1. If you don't already have a Hiro wallet account, follow this guide to create a new one.

  2. Login to Sigle

    a. Login to Sigle with an account owning a .btc name (you can get one at btc.us)

    b. Login to Sigle with your account and follow the UI to register a new free subdomain

  3. Manually copy the content from your old account to the new account. You will need to copy the drafts, published stories and settings.

To access your old account, you can use the legacy connect button on the login page.

Legacy login

Option 2 - Keep your username and secret key

Pros

  • Keep using Sigle as usual
  • Use the Hiro wallet extension and access other Stacks apps
  • No need to manually migrate your Gaia content (drafts / published stories, settings...)

Cons

  • Need to run a script to transfer the subdomain and wait for the tx to be processed
danger

This option is not available at the moment.

If you want to keep your username, we recommend that you wait and keep using the legacy "Blockstack connect" for now.

The Stacks team is working on adding support for transferring subdomains to new addresses. You can track the progress here.
