Encryption produces gibberish string

#1
$this->config    = new \Config\Encryption();
$this->encrypter = \Config\Services::encrypter($this->config); 
$ciphertext =  $this->encrypter->encrypt(base64_encode($text));


When I echo $ciphertext, I get some gibberish text(see below). Ideally, I am saving this value in the database. Is this normal?

You might find the same technique useful for the results of encryption:
Code:
// Encrypt some text & make the results text
$encoded = base64_encode($encrypter->encrypt($plaintext));

I think you have the base64_encode in the wrong place.

I figured it out, thanks.
