I know bundlers can bundle zero fee transactions, but can an Ardor account that is newly created without ever making a transaction send out a message and have it bundled? Or is this not possible as the new account never made a transaction before?
From riker in slack:
The ability to submit a transaction with 0 fee from a new account is currently blocked by several layers of protection inherited from NXT:
- The wallet does not allow it.
- The API layer requires that the transaction passphrase belongs to an account which is registered on the blockchain.
- The node logic requires an existing account to check the account balance.
It is enough to send a message or set an Account Property to a new account in order to allow it to send 0 fee transactions.
