Task: Send Some Algos!

Let’s spend some money! In this task, use goal (the command line tool) to send money to one of our accounts.

*Updated on 2019-04-22: To avoid confusion, removed language about rewarding genesis wallets which has now expired.

Task instructions

  1. Send 100 algos to the following account: NJY27OQ2ZXK6OWBN44LE4K43TA2AV3DPILPYTHAJAMKIVZDWTEJKZJKO4A
  2. Submit the transaction ID, your public key sending address, and your email via this form (so we can confirm completion and give you a badge) !

Prerequisites

  1. Make sure you have completed all the steps here to get your node up and running.
  2. Check that you are running the latest version (run ./update.sh -d <data-dir> from within your node directory).
  3. Make sure you have some money to spend! Use the dispenser, to send yourself algos. Directions located here.
  4. Reference the goal documentation to help you complete this task.

Hint

Sending money requires you to have an account with sufficient funds. This can all be done with goal account and the dispenser. Use goal clerk to send algos.

Why This Task Matters

A simple transaction is core functionality underlying many applications on the blockchain, so it is worth understanding how to do this! This will also get you familiar with goal and its various functions. Separately, this will give us insight into transactions across our network generated from independent nodes around the world.

You will earn the 100 Algo Spender badge for completing this task:

How do I login to the dispenser and when I follow the link to send myself algos it just goes to the github instructions for using goal.

#3

Thanks for your question!

To dispense to your account:

  1. Click the Google “sign in” link at the top of the Dispenser page and sign in with your Google account. It does not need to be associated with your Discourse email.
  2. Complete the “I’m not a robot” reCAPTCHA.
  3. Copy and paste the public key of the target address you would like to send money to into the empty text box.
  4. Click “Dispense”.

A 200 status code and a transaction id means success. You can run goal account balance -a <pubkey> -d <data-dir> to view the new balance.

Hello,

got some issue with the task:

I made the TX:

TX id: tx-O75OBVPKNY7NSESXZ76W5LXHBMKQDUNTHRGVRAKFGZIF7RCG7RVA
From: VGIFQKFBDR2SDSNJC7CIBONE53F2WOLWBQVOC3HKDZ6UYTY4CXOHNFW62Q
To: CU5QSBNCJDPHXTOLBFCEQKKXSM65PJQXTYTAIFEBOQZF62Q4HJ43AFG3BM

Command used:
./goal clerk send -d data -a 100 -t CU5QSBNCJDPHXTOLBFCEQKKXSM65PJQXTYTAIFEBOQZF62Q4HJ43AFG3BM -f VGIFQKFBDR2SDSNJC7CIBONE53F2WOLWBQVOC3HKDZ6UYTY4CXOHNFW62Q

But the form on the website did not work,
the page: https://www.algorand.com/task-spend-some-money/
return a 404 error with message: “The requested page could not be found.”

How I can send the result of my task?
Thank you

Hi~! I think I manage to complete the task (with a little doubt though).
Request :

Hope this is a success!

Now I has the latest version. But send 100 algos will fail because it reports error ‘balance 100 below min 1000’.

So I have to send 1000 algos first, then send 100 algos to it. Is this OK?

[root@block-chain-09 node]# ./update.sh -d ./data
Current Version = 131080
Latest Version = 131080
No new version found

[root@block-chain-09 node]# ./goal clerk send -a 100 -f HJCRROHJ6D4PQPYEZFFWNXWJOPWUXDATS7TCR5U2H7ROAA4HNESRYPN7SU -t CU5QSBNCJDPHXTOLBFCEQKKXSM65PJQXTYTAIFEBOQZF62Q4HJ43AFG3BM -d ./data
