A Multi-Signature (Multi-Sig) wallet is a type of digital wallet that requires multiple signatures, or approvals, from a defined group of people before a transaction can be executed. This security feature is utilized within blockchain technology to enhance the safety and governance of cryptocurrency transactions and smart contract operations. Multi-Sig wallets are especially valuable for organizations, teams, or any collective entities like DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) that handle shared funds or assets, as they distribute the power to transact across several parties, minimizing the risk of theft or unauthorized access.

The key advantage of a Multi-Sig wallet is that it creates a system of checks and balances within the entity managing the wallet. For example, in a 3-of-5 Multi-Sig setup, three out of five designated signatories must approve a transaction before it can be processed. This arrangement not only secures assets against external threats but also against internal fraud or errors, making it ideal for collaborative projects, joint accounts, and organizational treasuries in the blockchain space.
