Move CCD between the two balances

Accounts on the Concordium blockchain have two balances, the Balance and the Shielded balance. You can move funds between these two balances using either a shield CCD transaction or an unshield CCD transaction.

Note

The amount contained in the Balance is publicly visible, while the amount on the Shielded balance is encrypted and is only visible for the account holder. Moving funds between the balances is also publicly visible, including the amount. Only shielded transfers between two different accounts have their amounts encrypted.

Move CCD to the shielded balance

  1. Go to the Accounts page.

  2. Tap the account you want to transfer CCD from, and tap the Balance area of the account card.

  3. Tap SHIELD.

  4. Enter the amount you want to move to the shielded balance.

  5. Tap Shield amount.

  6. Confirm your choices and Tap Shield amount.

  7. Your shielding transaction has now been submitted to the blockchain. Finally, tap Ok, thanks.

The transaction might take a little while to finalize on the blockchain, and you can follow the status in the transaction log. Once it has been finalized, you can browse to your shielded balance to see the newly shielded amount.

Note

All transactions cost a fee, including shielding and unshielding transactions. The fee will always be deducted from the regular balance, and you can see the fee in the transaction log.
