Error composing dividend transaction via API: ['zero dividend']

If you see this error in Freewallet, it usually denotes a specific situation when using the Dividend function.

The error shows as this popup:

This indicates that no users will be paid dividends using this transaction, so the Counterparty protocol does not let you generate the transaction (and in this situation, Freewallet as well).

  • This error can have something to do with a protocol issue regarding an asset that was previously reset (when using the very specific Reset Feature) and should be fixed in an upcoming Counterparty release.

  • It has also been reported when trying to send an asset which is divisible (less than 1 total supply).

  • The work-around for this error would be to use a MPMA (Multisend) to distribute your dividends instead of using the dividend function.
