Request Body

address string
Destination address
Max length: <= 250 characters
Example: 2MvrwRYBAuRtPTiZ5MyKg42Ke55W3fZJfZS
amountOne of
Amount in base units (e.g. satoshi, wei, drops, stroops). For doge, only string is allowed.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
walletPassphrase string
Passphrase to decrypt the user key on the wallet
prv string
Optional, private key in string form, if "walletPassphrase" is not available or encrypted private key is not stored by BitGo.
type string
Required for transactions from TSS wallets. "acceleration" speeds up transactions with a certain nonce by adjusting the gas setting. "accountSet" is for XRP AccountSet transactions. "enabletoken" is for SOL. "stakingLock" and "stakingUnlock" are for Stacks delegations. "transfer" is for native-asset transfers. "trustline" is for Stellar trustline transactions. Possible types include: [acceleration, accountSet, enabletoken, stakingLock, stakingUnlock, transfer, transfertoken, trustline] For AVAX only, possible types include: [addValidator, export, import]
numBlocks integer
(BTC only) Used to estimate the fee rate by targeting confirmation within the given number of blocks. If neither "feeRate" nor "numBlocks" is specified, a block target of 2 is used by default. Can be limited with "maxFeeRate".
Minimum: >= 2
Maximum: <= 1000
feeRateOne of
Custom minimum fee rate in a coin's base unit per kilobyte (or virtual kilobyte)--for example, satoshis per kvByte or microAlgos per kByte. For xrp, it refers to the open ledger fee in drops (1 XRP = 1000000 drops) and the actual fee used is usually 4.5 times the open ledger fee. If the applied "feeRate" does not meet a coin's required minimum transaction fee amount, the minimum is still applied (for example, 1000 sat/kvByte , a flat 1000 microAlgos or a flat 10 drops of xrp).
Example: null
maxFeeRateOne of
Custom upper limit for fee rate in a coin's base unit per kilobyte (or virtual kilobyte)--for example, satoshis per kvByte or microAlgos per kByte. "maxFeeRate" can be used to limit a fee rate estimate generated with "numBlocks".
Example: null
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
feeMultiplierOne of
Custom multiplier for fee rate. Suggested to be used in conjunction with "maxFeeRate" for higher priority transactions, or transactions which may not be broadcast for some time after being built. If used together with "rbfTxIds" (RBF), it acts as an absolute fee multiplier for the transaction to be replaced. Must be greater than 0. Must be a number and greater than 1 if used for RBF.
Example: null
Match pattern: ^-?[\d\.]+$
minConfirms integer
The unspent selection for the transaction will only consider unspents with at least this many confirmations to be used as inputs. Does not apply to change outputs unless used in combination with "enforceMinConfirmsForChange".
enforceMinConfirmsForChange boolean
When set to true, will enforce minConfirms for change outputs. Defaults to false.
Default: false
gasPriceOne of
Custom gas price to be used for sending the transaction. Only for ETH and ERC20 tokens.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
eip1559 object
maxPriorityFeePerGasOne of
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
maxFeePerGasOne of
Max total gasPrice for EIP1559 transactions. Only for ETH and ERC20 tokens.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
gasLimitOne of
Custom gas limit to be used for sending the transaction. Only for ETH and ERC20 tokens.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
targetWalletUnspents integer
Specifies the minimum count of good-sized unspents to maintain in the wallet. Change splitting ceases when the wallet has "targetWalletUnspents" good-sized unspents. **Note**: Wallets that continuously send a high count of transactions will automatically split large change amounts into multiple good-sized change outputs while they have fewer than "targetWalletUnspents" good-sized unspents in their unspent pool. Breaking up large unspents helps to reduce the amount of unconfirmed funds in flight in future transactions, and helps to avoid long chains of unconfirmed transactions. This is especially useful for newly funded wallets or recently refilled send-only wallets.
Default: 1000
minValueOne of
Ignore unspents smaller than this amount of base units (e.g. satoshis). For doge, only string is allowed.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
maxValueOne of
Ignore unspents larger than this amount of base units (e.g. satoshis). For doge, only string is allowed.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
sequenceId string
A "sequenceId" is a unique and arbitrary wallet identifier applied to transfers and transactions at creation. It is optional but highly recommended. With a "sequenceId" you can easily reference transfers and transactions&mdash;for example, to safely retry sending. Because the system only confirms one send request per "sequenceId" (and fails all subsequent attempts), you can retry sending without the risk of double spending. The "sequenceId" is only visible to users on the wallet and is not shared publicly.
nonce string
(DOT only) A nonce ID is a number used to protect private communications by preventing replay attacks. This is an advanced option where users can manually input a new nonce value in order to correct or fill in a missing nonce ID value.
Example: 2000000
Match pattern: ^-?\d+$
noSplitChange boolean
Set "true" to disable automatic change splitting. Also see: "targetWalletUnspents"
Default: false
unspents array[string]
Used to explicitly specify the unspents to be used in the input set in the transaction. Each unspent should be in the form "prevTxId:nOutput".
changeAddress string
Specifies a custom destination address for the transaction's change output(s)
Max length: <= 250 characters
Example: 2MvrwRYBAuRtPTiZ5MyKg42Ke55W3fZJfZS
instant boolean
(DASH only) Specifies whether or not to use Dash's "InstantSend" feature when sending a transaction.
memo object
Memo for Stellar or EOS. Type is only required for memos in Stellar transactions. The memo contains optional extra information that can also be used to identify payments in Stellar or EOS.
type string
value string
comment string
Optional metadata (only persisted in BitGo) to be applied to the transaction. Use this to add transaction-specific information such as the transaction's purpose or another identifier that you want to reference later. The value is shown in the UI in the transfer listing page.
Max length: <= 256 characters
destinationChain string
(AVAXC and AVAXP only) Destination chain for an AVAX import/export transaction. One of [P, C].
sourceChain string
(AVAXC and AVAXP only) Source chain for an AVAX import/export transaction. One of [P, C].

(XRP only) Absolute max ledger the transaction should be accepted in, whereafter it will be rejected
ledgerSequenceDelta integer
(XRP only) Relative ledger height (in relation to the current ledger) that the transaction should be accepted in, whereafter it will be rejected
