I've successfully managed to use eosjs to transfer some EOS but when I'm trying to send something else (a token) it's no longer working.

For example that code is working:

import ScatterJS from 'scatterjs-core';

const scatter = ScatterJS.scatter;
const eos = scatter.eos(network, Eos, eosOptions);
const transactionOptions = { authorization:[`${account.name}@${account.authority}`] };
var res = await eos.transfer(account.name,'testacc','1.0000 EOS','', transactionOptions);

Whereas that code isn't working:

var res = await eos.transfer(account.name, 'testacc', '80.0000 EOSDAC', '', transactionOptions);

When executing that second code I get the error (caught in a try / catch handler):

{"code":500,"message":"Internal Service Error","error":{"code":3050003,"name":"eosio_assert_message_exception","what":"eosio_assert_message assertion failure","details":[{"message":"assertion failure with message: unable to find key","file":"wasm_interface.cpp","line_number":917,"method":"eosio_assert"},{"message":"pending console output: ","file":"apply_context.cpp","line_number":72,"method":"exec_one"}]}}

I honestly don't know what's wrong with my code... can anyone help me to get it to work?

  • Just for information, account.name = my EOS username. I got the value of 'account' using => const account = scatter.identity.accounts.find(x => x.blockchain === 'eos');

  • Symbol EOSDAC is not supported unless you mint your own token. SO you have to send 80.0000 EOS. Commented Dec 26, 2018 at 12:16
  • Thanks for your answer but EOSDAC do exists as a token and my goal is to send the token not 80 EOS ;-) I'd like to send 80 EOSDAC so how can I do that? It's not my token but it is an already existing token so how can I send 80 EOSDAC? I'm not focused on EOSDAC it's mostly to try to make that work so that can be DICE tokens or IQ or whatever ;-)

  • And just for information, I can send EOSDAC from Scatter so how can I do the same from the code directly?

  • Does this symbol support your eosio.token code . Check symbol.hpp file..? Commented Dec 27, 2018 at 4:04

After searching the official doc and trying different approches I finally got it to work. I've used eos.transaction instead of eos.transfer and the following example is working for those interested:

var res = await eos.transaction({
    actions: [
        account: "eosjackscoin", //has to be the smart contract name of the token you want to transfer - eosio for EOS or eosjackscoin for JKR for example
        name: "transfer",
        authorization: [{
            actor: account.name,
            permission: account.authority
        data: {
            from: account.name,
            to: "destinationaccount",
            quantity: "50.0000 JKR",
            memo: ""
