bank module

Introduction

The bank module maintains the state of two primary objects:
  • Account balances by address;
  • Total supply of tokens of the chain
bank module tracks and provides query support for the total supply of all assets used in the application. It also supports token transfer functionalities. Specifically, the total supply is updated whenever a token is:
  • Minted, e.g. Token created by the mint module; or
  • Burned, e.g. Token distorted by the slashing module.

Transactions

tx bank send [from_key_or_address] [to_address] [amount] [network_id] - Send Funds

$ cronosd tx bank send mykey tcrc1xwxk09wds0u2k6l39sp0e8ajx3jkw6dm0z5c26 1basetcro --keyring-backend test --chain-id ethermint-2
