Send Funds


Once you have a wallet and some funds (tutorial), another common task is sending Dash to an address. (Sending Dash to a contact or a DPNS identity requires the Dashpay app, which has not been registered yet.)


const Dash = require('dash');

const clientOpts = {
  network: 'evonet',
  wallet: {
    mnemonic: 'your wallet mnemonic goes here'
const client = new Dash.Client(clientOpts);

const sendFunds = async () => {
  const account = await client.getWalletAccount();

  const transaction = account.createTransaction({
    recipient: 'yixnmigzC236WmTXp9SBZ42csyp9By6Hw8', // Evonet faucet
    satoshis: 100000000, // 1 Dash
  return account.broadcastTransaction(transaction);

  .then((d) => console.log('Transaction broadcast!\nTransaction ID:', d))
  .catch((e) => console.error('Something went wrong:\n', e))
  .finally(() => client.disconnect());

What's Happening

After initializing the Client, we build a new transaction with account.createTransaction. It requires a recipient and an amount in satoshis (often called "duffs" in Dash). 100 million satoshis equals one Dash. We pass the transaction to account.broadcastTransaction and wait for it to return. Then we output the result, which is a transaction ID. After that we disconnect from the Client so node can exit.
