The following example creates a multisig key with 3 sub-keys, and specify the minimum number of signatures as 2. The tx could be broadcast only when the number of signatures is greater than or equal to 2.
uptickd keys add <multisig-keyname> --multisig-threshold=2 --multisig=<signer-keyname-1>,<signer-keyname-2>,<signer-keyname-3>
<signer-keyname>can be the type of "local/offline/ledger", but not "multi" type.If you don't have all the permission of sub-keys, you can ask for the pubkeys to create the offline keys first, then you will be able to create the multisig key.Offline key can be created by "uptickd keys add --pubkey".
