(Requires the XChainBridge amendment )

The XChainModifyBridge transaction allows bridge managers to modify the parameters of the bridge. They can only change the SignatureReward and the MinAccountCreateAmount.

This transaction must be sent by the door account and requires the entities that control the witness servers to coordinate and provide the signatures for this transaction. This coordination happens outside the ledger.

Note: You can't modify the signer list for the bridge with this transaction. The signer list is on the door account itself and is changed in the same way signer lists are changed on accounts (via a SignerListSet transaction).
