        ],
        "send_currencies": [

            "CHF",

        ],
        "validated": true
    },
    "status": "success",
    "type": "response"
}

The response follows the standard format, with a successful result containing the following fields:

FieldTypeDescription
ledger_hashString - Hash(May be omitted) The identifying hash of the ledger version used to retrieve this data, as hex.
ledger_indexInteger - Ledger IndexThe ledger index of the ledger version used to retrieve this data.
receive_currenciesArray of StringsArray of Currency Codes for currencies that this account can receive.
send_currenciesArray of StringsArray of Currency Codes for currencies that this account can send.
validatedBooleanIf true, this data comes from a validated ledger.

Note: The currencies that an account can send or receive are defined based on a check of its trust lines. If an account has a trust line for a currency and enough room to increase its balance, it can receive that currency. If the trust line's balance can go down, the account can send that currency. This method doesn't check whether the trust line is frozen or authorized.

Possible Errors

  • Any of the universal error types.
  • invalidParams - One or more fields are specified incorrectly, or one or more required fields are missing.
  • actNotFound - The address specified in the account field of the request does not correspond to an account in the ledger.
  • lgrNotFound - The ledger specified by the ledger_hash or ledger_index does not exist, or it does exist but the server does not have it.
