The Asset Object

When Horizon returns information about an asset, it uses the following format:



  • asset_typestring

    This asset's type. Either credit_alphanum4 or credit_alphanum12.

  • asset_codestring

    This asset's code

  • asset_issuerstring

    The Stellar address of this asset’s issuer.

  • accountsobject

    The number of accounts grouped by each trustline flag state.

  • num_claimable_balancesnumber

    The current number of claimable_balances for this asset.

  • balancesobject

    The number of units issued for this asset grouped by each trustline flag state.

  • claimable_balances_amountstring

    The number of units in claimable balances for this asset.

  • amountstring

    The number of authorized units issued for this asset. This will be deprecated in Horizon v3.

  • num_accountsnumber

    The number of accounts that have issued a trustline to this asset. If the auth_required flag for this asset's issuer is set to true, this number only includes the accounts who have both set up a trustline to the asset and have been authorized to hold the asset. This will be deprecated in Horizon v3.
