Transferring DOT is a simple process. We will collect:

  • The address from which DOT is transferred.
  • The account that will sign the transaction.
  • The address to which DOT is transferred.
  • Amount of DOT to be transferred.

In the following guide we will illustrate how to transfer DOT between accounts.

Create New Transfer Flow

To initiate the transfer process, create a new flow with a POST request to /api/v1/flows.

URL

https://polkadot-slate.datahub.figment.io/api/v1/flows

Request

  • flow : object
    • network_code* : string Network this flow operates on (ex. polkadot).
    • chain_code* : string Chain this flow operates on (ex. westend).
    • operation* : string The operation to perform (ex. transfer).
{
  "flow": {
    "network_code": "polkadot",
    "chain_code": "westend",
    "operation": "transfer"
  }
}

Response

  • id : string ID of the flow.
  • operation : string The Staking API operation being performed by this flow.
  • state : string The current state of the flow.
  • actions : array It includes the name & inputs of all next possible actions.
    • create_transfer_tx : Use this action to create a transfer transaction to send DOT between accounts.
      • from_account_address : The address from which DOT will be transferred.
      • to_account_address : The address to which DOT will be transferred.
      • amount : The amount of DOT to be transferred.
  • data : object Flow & transaction data.

Submit Signed Transfer Transaction for Broadcast

Before broadcasting the transaction, you must sign the transaction_payload you received in the previous step. After signing the transaction, send a PUT request to /api/v1/flows/[:flow_id]/next with the signed payload. The Staking API will broadcast the transaction to the Polkadot network.

URL

https://polkadot-slate.datahub.figment.io/api/v1/flows/[:flow_id]/next

Request

  • name* : sign_transfer_tx
  • inputs* : object
    • transaction_payload* : Signed transaction payload from the previous step's response.
    • signatures : array of object The signatures array can be used instead of sending a transaction payload when the signing keys are kept in a custodial solution, such as Fireblocks. Refer to the guide Signing Transactions with the Fireblocks API for details.
