Transferring NEAR is a simple process. We will collect:

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

Once the transfer transaction is confirmed on-chain, the transfer of NEAR between accounts is complete.

In the following guide we will illustrate how to transfer NEAR 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://near-slate.datahub.figment.io/api/v1/flows

Request

  • flow : object
    • network_code* : string Network this flow operates on (ex. near).
    • chain_code* : string Chain this flow operates on (ex. testnet).
    • operation* : string The operation to perform (ex. transfer).
{
  "flow": {
    "network_code": "near",
    "chain_code": "testnet",
    "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 transfer NEAR.
      • from_account_address : The address from which NEAR will be transferred.
      • from_account_pubkey : The account that will sign the transaction.
      • to_account_address : The address to which NEAR will be transferred.
      • amount : The amount of NEAR 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 NEAR network.

URL

https://near-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.
