This class allows anyone to send or receive WAX easily from PHP. It can be used either on the command line, or in a web server. It will work on PHP 5.6 or higher.
To get started, you will need these PHP modules:
You will also need to install Geth and enable its JSON-RPC API.
Due to precision concerns, all amounts are represented as strings. For example, 1.2345 WAX will be returned as
There are some demos available under demo/
new Wax($rpcHost[, $rpcPort][, $trimTrailingZeroes])
$rpcHost- This should be the host where your Geth JSON-RPC is available, e.g.
$rpcPort- This should be the port where your Geth JSON-RPC is available. This is optional and defaults to
$trimTrailingZeroes- If true, then WAX balances and amounts will have trailing zeroes removed

Sends some WAX from an address you control to another address immediately. Returns the hash of the resulting transaction.
