sendtoaddress - Zcash 5.0.0 RPC

sendtoaddress "zcashaddress" amount ( "comment" "comment-to" subtractfeefromamount )

Send an amount to a given transparent address. The amount is interpreted as a real number
and is rounded to the nearest 0.00000001. This API will only select funds from the transparent
pool, and all the details of the transaction, including sender, recipient, and amount will be
permanently visible on the public chain. THIS API PROVIDES NO PRIVACY, and should only be
used when interoperability with legacy Bitcoin infrastructure is required.

1. "zcashaddress"  (string, required) The transparent Zcash address to send to.
2. "amount"      (numeric, required) The amount in ZEC to send. eg 0.1
3. "comment"     (string, optional) A comment used to store what the transaction is for. 
                             This is not part of the transaction, just kept in your wallet.
4. "comment-to"  (string, optional) A comment to store the name of the person or organization 
                             to which you're sending the transaction. This is not part of the 
                             transaction, just kept in your wallet.
5. subtractfeefromamount  (boolean, optional, default=false) The fee will be deducted from the amount being sent.
                             The recipient will receive less Zcash than you enter in the amount field.

"transactionid"  (string) The transaction id.
