XRP - Account not found

With XRP, every address is required to hold a small amount of XRP as a Reserve to be active and usable for transactions on the network.

If you make a query to an XRP address that does not hold funds, you will likely get an error looking as follows or similar:

{'statusCode': 403, 'errorCode': 'xrp.account.failed', 'message': 'Account not found. Code: 19'}
