EscrowCreate Fields

In addition to the common fields, EscrowCreate transactions use the following fields:

Field JSON Type Internal Type Description
Amount String Amount Amount of XRP, in drops, to deduct from the sender's balance and escrow. Once escrowed, the XRP can either go to the Destination address (after the FinishAfter time) or returned to the sender (after the CancelAfter time).
Destination String AccountID Address to receive escrowed XRP.
CancelAfter Number UInt32 (Optional) The time, in seconds since the Ripple Epoch, when this escrow expires. This value is immutable; the funds can only be returned to the sender after this time.
FinishAfter Number UInt32 (Optional) The time, in seconds since the Ripple Epoch, when the escrowed XRP can be released to the recipient. This value is immutable; the funds cannot move until this time is reached.
Condition String Blob (Optional) Hex value representing a PREIMAGE-SHA-256 crypto-condition . The funds can only be delivered to the recipient if this condition is fulfilled.
DestinationTag Number UInt32 (Optional) Arbitrary tag to further specify the destination for this escrowed payment, such as a hosted recipient at the destination address.

Either CancelAfter or FinishAfter must be specified. If both are included, the FinishAfter time must be before the CancelAfter time.

With the fix1571 amendment enabled, you must supply FinishAfter, Condition, or both. New in: rippled 1.0.0
