Issuing Transferable Record

In this final step, we will create the transferable record and initialize the first owner of that to the title escrow we have created earlier.


You will require the following:

  • token registry address
  • private key to token registry (key.txt)
  • title escrow contract address
  • merkle root of the wrapped transferable record

Issuing Transferable Records#

To issue the transferable record, simply run the following command:

open-attestation token-registry issue -a 0x8431012Bc040942B59e3C5bf428221eab0b2f723 --tokenId 0x0d9839a8034cb783d98bd57bcbaafb4dc3614c4193d2edf8a655c1ec6635b7ea --to 0xec733A8322f8216eaf8e5566e750bfee3974B7f3 -n ropsten -f key.txt

Note to replace the following values:

  • 0x8431012Bc040942B59e3C5bf428221eab0b2f723 with your token registry contract address
  • 0x0d9839a8034cb783d98bd57bcbaafb4dc3614c4193d2edf8a655c1ec6635b7ea with your merkle root (with a 0x prefix)
  • 0xec733A8322f8216eaf8e5566e750bfee3974B7f3 with your title escrow contract address

Once the document has been issued, you will be able to see an output similar to the following:
