Signs an ICP transfer transaction.
The basic syntax for running
quill transfer commands is:
quill transfer [option] --amount <AMOUNT> <TO>
|Displays usage information.|
|Amount of ICPs to transfer (with up to 8 decimal digits after comma).|
|Transaction fee, default is 10000 e8s.|
|The subaccount to transfer from.|
|Reference number, default is 0.|
quill transfer command is used to transfer ICP from one account to another.
For example, to transfer 5 ICP to the anonymous principal
quill transfer 1c7a48ba6a562aa9eaa2481a9049cdf0433b9738c992d698c31d8abf89cadc79 --amount 5
This will produce a response like:
(5_581_035 : nat64)
This refers to the block index, also known as block height, at which the transaction took place; you can look up this transaction on the IC dashboard.
As this is an update call, it will not actually make the request, but rather generate a signed and packaged request that can be sent from anywhere. You can use the
--qr flag to display it as a QR code, or if you are not working with an air-gapped machine, you can pipe it to
quill send -.
