Update an account

A transaction that updates the properties of an existing account. The network will store the latest updates on the account. If you would like to retrieve the state of an account in the past, you can query a mirror node.
Account Properties
Transaction Fees
  • Please see the transaction and query fees table for the base transaction fee
  • Please use the Hedera fee estimator to estimate your transaction fee cost
Transaction Signing Requirements
  • The account key(s) are required to sign the transaction
  • If you are updating the keys on the account the OLD KEY and NEW KEY must sign
    • If either is a key list then the key list keys are all required to sign
    • If either is a threshold key, the threshold value is required to sign
  • If you do not have the required signatures, the network will throw an INVALID_SIGNATURE error
