Link a sub-account
A step-by-step guide showing how to link a sub-account
Users can also link accounts by setting "sub accounts", each with its own identity, under a primary account. The system reserves a bond for each sub account. An example of how you might use this would be a validation company running multiple validators. A single entity, "My Staking Company", could register multiple sub accounts that represent the Stash accounts of each of their validators.
An account can have a maximum of 100 sub-accounts.
To register a sub-account on an existing account, do the following:
Navigate to Developer > Extrinsics
- Extrinsic: identity
- Function: setSubs
Click: Add item
Choose the sub-account you want to link to the main account
Looking at the sub-account on the Accounts page, you will see the account USER-2 has now inherited its parents name USER.
Should you want to add a unique name to the sub-account see the tutorial called: 'Custom named sub-account'
