On generating a new account using the JS Ripple SDK

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, just downloaded the JS Ripple SDK and started playing with it to create accounts in the testnet, then decided to try a live account and sent 30 XRPs to it but it's been an hour and still getting an error "account not found" when querying for balance. What did go wrong?

 

Here is the code used to generate the account form the docs:

// Generate address/secret keys

function generateAccount(live=false) {
    if(live){
        server = 'wss://s1.ripple.com/';                 // LIVE
    } else {
        server = 'wss://s.altnet.rippletest.net:51233';  // TEST
    }

    const api = new ripple.RippleAPI({server:server});
    api.connect().then(() => {
        console.log('Generating account...');
        return api.generateAddress();
    }).then(act => {
        account = act;
        console.log('Account', act);
        console.log('Address: '+act.address);
        console.log('Secret:  '+act.secret);
    }).then(function(){
        console.log('Disconnecting...');
        return api.disconnect();
    }).then(function(){
        console.log('Disconnected');
    }).catch(console.error);
}

20 hours have passed and the account is still not found. Any idea why? Should I create a new account and resend the money? How do I cancel a transaction?

Maybe you could post transaction id here so that we can investigate.

Here is the account number but the transaction has already been cancelled and unfortunately I don't know the tx id.

Will wait for a couple of days before trying again, I don't know if the server is under heavy load due to recent events or the shady exchange (bitfinex) took so long to send the money (30 XRP?) for unknown reasons.

Thanks anyway, will keep you posted next time I try.

Who canceled the transaction? Exchange? Some exchanges don't allow sending XRPs to non-activated accounts.

I did after 24 hours waiting and the tx being in pending state. That's a possibility Bitfinex doesn't allow to send coins to empty wallets but I didn't see that warning anywhere, if that's the case then it's all my fault with a little lack of information from their side. I just wanted to fund my account while playing with the SDK. Is there an easier way without going through untrusted parties or complex registrations?
