Select one of the tabs below for a guide on understanding the transaction details in your Talisman wallet.
EVM Message Signing
EVM Transfer
Substrate Extrinsic Signing
Substrate Transfer
A message to sign on EVM can be triggered by various dApps. For example the Moonbeam NFT marketplace tofuNFT asks a new user to very their address. They request a message signing. Talisman will ask for our approval once we click OK.
request by tofuNFT
​
Talisman opens up and shows us the SignRequest with the message as plain text in the lighter gray frame. Note that Talisman is the perfect tool for when you have doubts about a dApps integrity. There is no guarantee that the dApps user interface shows you the same transaction request that it is actually requesting signing for. The Talisman interface, however, always shows the exact message or transaction that you are going to submit.
A simple externally triggered token transfer on EVM gives us this view when asking for approval. First you see the logo and name of the dApp that triggered the request. Then the amount and token type you are going to transfer, the account you are currently signing with and the chain that the transaction would occur on.
Click View Details to get more information on the outstanding transaction.

Note that these details are not displayed when sending funds via the Talisman wallet itself. Instead you can check details after your transaction is finalized. Talisman will show the block it was included in. Just click the number to check it out in the block explorer.

With substrate extrinsics, you can go further than checking addresses and gas fees, and also get a description of the atomical execution steps. These arguments that get passed to the extrinsic are displayed in a separate gray section. You can choose between YAML or JSON format.
If you are further interested in the effect of a certain extrinsic you can look it up in the substrate documentation.
