Private peer-to-peer off-chain txs

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

Prerequisite steps

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 type mutable account (account A). Now, create another mutable (account B) using the following command:

    miden new-wallet --mutable
  2. List and view the newly created accounts with the following command:

    miden 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 send --sender <regular-account-id-A> --target <regular-account-id-B> --faucet <faucet-account-id> 50 --note-type private


    The faucet account id is 0xad904b3138d71d3e and can also be found on the Miden faucet website under the title Miden faucet.

    This generates a private Pay-to-ID (P2ID) note containing 50 assets, transferred from one account to the other.

  2. First, sync the accounts.

    miden sync
  3. Get the second note id.

    miden notes
  4. Have the second account consume the note.

    miden consume-notes --account <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, e.g. 0x6ae613a.

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

  5. Check the second account:

    miden account --show <regular-account-ID-B>

    Result of listing miden accounts

  6. Check the original account:

    miden account --show <regular-account-ID-A>

    Result of listing miden accounts

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 submitting proofs of transactions, generating and consuming notes.

For more information on the Miden client, refer to the Miden client documentation.

Clear data

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.
