AccountRoot Fields

The AccountRoot object has the following fields:

Field JSON Type Internal Type Description
LedgerEntryType String UInt16 The value 0x0061, mapped to the string AccountRoot, indicates that this is an AccountRoot object.
Account String AccountID The identifying address of this account, such as rf1BiGeXwwQoi8Z2ueFYTEXSwuJYfV2Jpn.
Balance String Amount The account's current XAG balance in drops, represented as a string.
Flags Number UInt32 A bit-map of boolean flags enabled for this account.
OwnerCount Number UInt32 The number of objects this account owns in the ledger, which contributes to its owner reserve.
PreviousTxnID String Hash256 The identifying hash of the transaction that most recently modified this object.
PreviousTxnLgrSeq Number UInt32 The index of the ledger that contains the transaction that most recently modified this object.
Sequence Number UInt32 The sequence number of the next valid transaction for this account. (Each account starts with Sequence = 1 and increases each time a transaction is made.)
AccountTxnID String Hash256 (Optional) The identifying hash of the transaction most recently sent by this account. This field must be enabled to use the AccountTxnID transaction field. To enable it, send an AccountSet transaction with the asfAccountTxnID flag enabled.
Domain String VariableLength (Optional) A domain associated with this account. In JSON, this is the hexadecimal for the ASCII representation of the domain.
EmailHash String Hash128 (Optional) The md5 hash of an email address. Clients can use this to look up an avatar through services such as Gravatar .
MessageKey String VariableLength (Optional) A public key that may be used to send encrypted messages to this account. In JSON, uses hexadecimal. No more than 33 bytes.
RegularKey String AccountID (Optional) The address of a key pair that can be used to sign transactions for this account instead of the master key. Use a SetRegularKey transaction to change this value.
TickSize Number UInt8 (Optional) How many significant digits to use for exchange rates of Offers involving currencies issued by this address. Valid values are 3 to 15, inclusive. (Added by the TickSize amendment.)
TransferRate Number UInt32 (Optional) A transfer fee to charge other users for sending currency issued by this account to each other.
WalletLocator String Hash256 (Optional) DEPRECATED. Do not use.
WalletSize Number UInt32 (Optional) DEPRECATED. Do not use.

AccountRoot Flags

There are several options which can be either enabled or disabled for an account. These options can be changed with an AccountSet transaction. In the ledger, flags are represented as binary values that can be combined with bitwise-or operations. The bit values for the flags in the ledger are different than the values used to enable or disable those flags in a transaction. Ledger flags have names that begin with lsf.

AccountRoot objects can have the following flag values:

Flag Name Hex Value Decimal Value Description Corresponding AccountSet Flag
lsfDefaultRipple 0x00800000 8388608 Enable rippling on this addresses's trust lines by default. Required for issuing addresses; discouraged for others. asfDefaultRipple
lsfDepositAuth 0x01000000 16777216 This account can only receive funds from transactions it sends, and from preauthorized accounts. (It has DepositAuth enabled.) asfDepositAuth
lsfDisableMaster 0x00100000 1048576 Disallows use of the master key to sign transactions for this account. asfDisableMaster
lsfDisallowXAG 0x00080000 524288 Client applications should not send XAG to this account. Not enforced by rippled. asfDisallowXAG
lsfGlobalFreeze 0x00400000 4194304 All assets issued by this address are frozen. asfGlobalFreeze
lsfNoFreeze 0x00200000 2097152 This address cannot freeze trust lines connected to it. Once enabled, cannot be disabled. asfNoFreeze
lsfPasswordSpent 0x00010000 65536 The account has used its free SetRegularKey transaction. (None)
lsfRequireAuth 0x00040000 262144 This account must individually approve other users for those users to hold this account's issuances. asfRequireAuth
lsfRequireDestTag 0x00020000 131072 Requires incoming payments to specify a Destination Tag. asfRequireDest

The ID of an AccountRoot object is the SHA-512Half of the following values, concatenated in order:

  • The Account space key (0x0061)
  • The AccountID of the account
