How do paths work?/How are paths represented on Bithomp/Ripple API?

Recommended Posts

So I have read about paths and understand what they mean. But, I am trying to understand if you can see the movement through the paths in the actual transaction. It seems like you cannot. For example, in the following transaction:


The following addresses appear in the path section, but not in the orderbook changes section or outcome section. 





But they have type\":48 which implies an orderbook. How do we know what is being exchanged in the paths section if the data does not appear in the transaction?

You can check the METADATA JSON. You can do it on bithomp (but it's "manipulated" with RippleAPI), you can do it on ripple chart (https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/transactions/93B95DC9886B49B0EAD45F4A84F5DE9942CD1265699F1034405AB0097F4C3C7A) but again it's "manipulated" to show it in a human readable way, or you can check the pure metadata from a rippled.

You can see that rp6yPpi3A2X9C3uquM6UXw9CmJ9CV7wFQq sent a payment of 1 BTC to Bitstamp using 92,555 XRP.

so they used the xrp as the bridge to send btc from A > B?

Not really as bridge.

The payment was: XRP-->BTC.

He basically sold XRP to rNkNYZ7oJUGecsgY9gtHJvTWJGtfFhePkR for BTC, then the BTC was sent to Bitstamp.
