Transferring an asset

So now, let’s imagine I sent you some BlockchainProgramming Coins. How can you send me back the coins? You need to build a ColoredCoin.

In the sample above, let’s say I want to spend the 10 assets I received on the address “nico”. Here is the coin I want to spend:

{
"transactionId": "fa6db7a2e478f3a8a0d1a77456ca5c9fa593e49fd0cf65c7e349e5a4cbe58842",
"index": 0,
"value": 600,
"scriptPubKey": "76a914356facdac5f5bcae995d13e667bb5864fd1e7d5988ac",
"redeemScript": null,
"assetId": "AVAVfLSb1KZf9tJzrUVpktjxKUXGxUTD4e",
"quantity": 10
}

Here is how to instantiate such Colored Coin in code:

var coin = new Coin(
fromTxHash: new uint256("fa6db7a2e478f3a8a0d1a77456ca5c9fa593e49fd0cf65c7e349e5a4cbe58842"),
fromOutputIndex: 0,
amount: Money.Satoshis(600),
scriptPubKey: new Script(Encoders.Hex.DecodeData("76a914356facdac5f5bcae995d13e667bb5864fd1e7d5988ac")));
BitcoinAssetId assetId = new BitcoinAssetId("AVAVfLSb1KZf9tJzrUVpktjxKUXGxUTD4e");
ColoredCoin colored = coin.ToColoredCoin(assetId, 10);

We will show you later how you can use some web services or custom code to get the coins more easily. I also needed another coin (forFees), to pay the fees. The asset transfer is actually very easy with the TransactionBuilder.

var book = BitcoinAddress.Create("1KF8kUVHK42XzgcmJF4Lxz4wcL5WDL97PB");
var nicoSecret = new BitcoinSecret("??????????", Network.Mainnet);
var nico = nicoSecret.GetAddress(); //15sYbVpRh6dyWycZMwPdxJWD4xbfxReeHe
var forFees = new Coin(
fromTxHash: new uint256("7f296e96ec3525511b836ace0377a9fbb723a47bdfb07c6bc3a6f2a0c23eba26"),
fromOutputIndex: 0,
amount: Money.Satoshis(4425000),
scriptPubKey: new Script(Encoders.Hex.DecodeData("76a914356facdac5f5bcae995d13e667bb5864fd1e7d5988ac")));
var builder = Network.Main.CreateTransactionBuilder();
var tx = builder
.AddKeys(nicoSecret)
.AddCoins(colored, forFees)
.SendAsset(book, new AssetMoney(assetId, 10))
.SetChange(nico)
.SendFees(Money.Coins(0.0001m))
.BuildTransaction(true);
Console.WriteLine(tx);
{
.
"out": [
{
"value": "0.00000000",
"scriptPubKey": "OP_RETURN 4f410100010a00"
},
{
"value": "0.00000600",
"scriptPubKey": "OP_DUP OP_HASH160 c81e8e7b7ffca043b088a992795b15887c961592 OP_EQUALVERIFY OP_CHECKSIG"
},
{
"value": "0.04415000",
"scriptPubKey": "OP_DUP OP_HASH160 356facdac5f5bcae995d13e667bb5864fd1e7d59 OP_EQUALVERIFY OP_CHECKSIG"
}
]
}

Which basically succeed:
