External data source for initial balance

+1 vote
Hi MC team

I need to set up an "inittial balance" in an multichain address , but this balance needs to be initialized or queried from an external source , how can this be done considering that only an initial block reward or an internal transfer of fund seems to be the only way to change the original zero balance of an address by default , any idea?

Best regards.

Give this external source an address, send lots of balance to that address, and then let the source send out the appropriate amounts in response to the external events. In any event, you cannot have the blockchain querying this external source directly, because that's not compatible with the need for certain consensus. More on this here:
