Deposit Funds into Escrow


sagacli enables you to contribute funds towards a chainlet, thereby giving you a stake in the chainlet. You can use your account functions to fund your own chainlet or any other chainlet on the SAGA network. Your funding account will be made public on the SAGA network for that Escrow.
IMPORTANT: To deposit funds into an escrow account, you will need the chain-id associated to the chainlet you wish to contribute towards. You will also need to have an account that has enough balance to cover your deposit.
To make an escrow deposit, you will execute the following command:
sagacli account deposit-escrow <chain-id> <amount to deposit> --from <key name or account address making the deposit>

Deposit Example

Let us see this deposit via an example.
Let's say we have a chainlet with a chain-id of magicwarriors_1679599719-1. It was launched by a user holding the key named ash.
Now, a user with the key fundkey wants to contribute some funds towards this chainlet. Once the holder of key fundkey makes an escrow deposit, these funds will be placed in an escrow account associated to chainlet magicwarriors_1679599719-1.
To make this deposit, we will execute the following command:
$ sagacli account deposit-escrow magicwarriors_1679599719-1 1000 --from fundkey
