    Maybe it is because of the encoding of the file in Visual Studio Code. In the bottom bar of VSCode, you'll see the label UTF-8 or something else. Click it. A popup opens. Click Save with encoding. You can now pick a new encoding for that file.

    Let me explain you Error:
    The error "CS0029: Cannot implicitly convert type 'string' to 'byte'" indicates an attempt to assign a string to a byte array directly, and in the provided code, this occurs when trying to assign the result of string.Join(",", Base58.Decode(base58_key)) to byte[] vIn. To resolve this, use Base58.Decode(base58_key) directly as it returns a byte array.

    Sir ! let me explain you the errors in your code. First, you have incorrectly used "string.Join" because, The string.Join method is used to concatenate elements of an array into a single string. However, the Base58.Decode method likely returns a byte[] array. So, joining the bytes with a comma creates a string representation, not a byte array. Secondly you have initialised byte[] array in a incorrect manner. You can directly use the byte array obtained from Base58.Decode. These are major two errors. I will further guide you if you're having any other errors. Thanks

    but the issues are simply is that the *string.Join* method creates a comma-separated string, but you want to convert the Base58-decoded bytes into a byte array directly, the other thing is that you are trying to create a byte array with a single element using byte[] vIn = new byte[] { bytes }, but bytes is a string, not a byte
