Issue asset fails even when anyone-can-issue is set to true

+1 vote

Hi, I'm seeing this odd behaviour whereby participants on a multichain instance cannot issue their own assets even when anyone-can-issue is set to true?

They get the following:

  "result": null,
  "error": {
    "code": -4,
    "message": "Insufficient funds"
  "id": 1

When I explicitly grant issue to the address in the wallet, it works fine.

I suspect the reason is that nothing has ever been sent to this address, so it has no UTXOs (unspent transaction outputs) that it can use as an input to the transaction which issued the asset. It's a byproduct of the architecture of the type of blockchain which MultiChain uses. To solve this problem, make sure that some transaction is sent to this address. It can just be sendtoaddress with an amount of 0.

When you point it out, it's obvious.....and a feature of a blockchain :)
