Private peer-to-peer off-chain txs

In this section, we show you how to make off-chain transactions and send funds to another account using the Miden client.

Prerequisite steps

  • You should have already followed all previous sections.
  • You should have not reset the state of your local client.

Create a second account


Remember to use the Miden client documentation for clarifications.

  1. Create a second account to send funds with. Previously, we created a basic-immutable (account A). Now, create basic-immutable (account B) using the following command:

    miden-client account new basic-immutable
  2. List and view the newly created accounts with the following command:

    miden-client account -l
  3. You should see two accounts:

Transfer assets between accounts

  1. Now we can transfer some of the tokens we received from the faucet to our second account B.

    To do this, run:

    miden-client tx new p2id <regular-account-id-A> <regular-account-id-B> <faucet-account-id> 50


    The faucet account id can be found on the Miden faucet website under the title Miden faucet.

    This generates a Pay-to-ID (P2ID) note containing <amount> assets, transferred from one account to the other.

  2. First, sync the accounts.

    miden-client sync # Make sure we have an updated view of the state
  3. Get the second note id.

    miden-client input-notes list 
  4. Have the second account consume the note.

    miden-client tx new consume-notes <regular-account-ID-B> <input-note-id> 


    It’s possible to use a short version of the note id: 7 characters after the 0x is sufficient.

That’s it!

You should now see both accounts containing faucet assets with half the amount transferred from Account A to Account B.


Remember. The original amount was 100 POL.

Check the second account:

miden-client account show <regular-account-ID-B> -v # Show account B's vault assets (50 fungible tokens)

Result of listing miden accounts

Check the original account:

miden-client account show <regular-account-ID-A> -v # Show account A's vault assets (950 fungible tokens)

Result of listing miden accounts

Clear state

All state is maintained in store.sqlite3, located in the directory defined in the miden-client.toml file.

To clear all state, delete this file. It recreates on any command execution.


You have successfully configured and used the Miden client to interact with a Miden rollup and faucet.

You have performed basic Miden rollup operations like sending transactions, generating and consuming notes.
