Transfers that don't appear on the blockchain.

Off-chain payments are transfers within a service and do not appear on the blockchain, i.e. they are not visible to the complete network. These occur for example when funds are sent from one to another user of the same online wallet, or when balances are adjusted within an exchange service at the time when trade offers are matched.
