Sending zcash (z_sendmay)


#1

Hello,

I understand that z_sendmay works with Transparent or Protected coins (please correct me if I'm wrong) but I cannot get the following command to work properly. I'm simply trying to send some of my mined coins to http://faucet.zeropond.com with the following transaction. I'm sending freshly mined transparent test coins then I check the status with z_getoperationresult.

./zcash-cli z_sendmany "mtAr91GVnEDreZbq3eWffRCFXAnvqygABV" "[{\"amount\": .1, \"address\": \"n4MXbgneZrJKYDQZrAqyeXsXcfgD3KcPqf\"}]"

./zcash-cli z_getoperationresult
[
{
"id" : "opid-e5642ad5-d1c0-4063-95ae-9057598430c1",
"status" : "failed",
"creation_time" : 1473605375,
"error" : {
"code" : -6,
"message" : "Could not find any non-coinbase UTXOs to spend."
}
}
]

I do not understand what "Could not find any non-coinbase UTXOs to spend" means. Can anyone help out?

Thanks!

I think you first have to send the mined coins to a private address first (see the beta guide on how to do that)

You'll need some RAM to do that :slight_smile:

Hi
I received zec from genesis mining to my t address. i did not mine these but received the mined ones from genesis mining. I tried to send this to my poloniex t address and got the same UTXO error. Thoughts? please help.
