Sending A Transaction To An XRP Ledger

Learn how easy it is to send a transaction to an XRP ledger.

Sending a transaction to the XRP Ledger involves several steps:

Step 1: Create an unsigned transaction in JSON format.

Step 2: Use one or more signatures to authorize the transaction.

Step 3: Submit a transaction to a rippled server. If the transaction is properly formed, the server provisionally applies the transaction to its current ledger version. It relays the transaction to other members of the peer-to-peer network.

Step 4: The consensus process determines which provisional transactions get included in the next validated ledger.

Step 5: The rippled servers apply those transactions to the previous ledger in canonical order and share their results.

Step 6: If enough trusted validators created the same ledger, that ledger is declared validated, and the results of the transactions in that ledger are immutable.

The submit method applies a transaction and sends it to the network to be confirmed and included in future ledgers.



If you are sending cryptocurrency that uses Destination Tag technology to Coinbase, you must input a correct Tag/Memo.

Both an address and a tag/memo are required to receive cryptocurrency. If you send funds without a tag/memo or an incorrect Tag/Memo, your funds cannot be credited to your account. (See Ripple FAQ)
