I have an "Ethereum Paper Wallet Address" and this address has $5 USD amount of Ethereum. I want to transfer that ether to another Ethereum address using an API.

Please let me know if any more details that I can provide. But I need help the soonest.


I don't think we have enough information to answer your question. What API do you want to use?

Without knowing that, all I can tell you is: Unless your paper wallet includes both your public address and your private key (which is not typical for a paper wallet), a paper wallet on its own is not sufficient to access its funds. You still need the key (private key). But assuming that you do have access to the address via the Ethereum software or something like https://www.myetherwallet.com/, then follow the documentation they provide to see what APIs are available and how to use them.

  • Thank you for your help. What we found out even if you have the private Key, you can not initiate a transaction until and unless you are connected to an Ethereum node. So we connected our wallet to infura and using their API, we connected the wallet and initiated the transaction through GETH console. – Arpan Nag Nov 8 '17 at 9:00
