Is there a Bitcoin "move" equivalent for Ethereum web3.eth ?

In Bitcoin:

<fromaccount> <toaccount> <amount> [minconf=1] [comment]
Move from one account in your wallet to another


  • Move only transfer's balance from one account to another?

For sending value from one account to another you can use, following web3.js API call -

web3.eth.sendTransaction({from:sender, to:receiver, value: amount})

Check this for more details on parameters available.

If you want to transfer the complete balance of one account to another then it's not directly possible.

However, there is a way which is already described in this answer - https://ethereum.stackexchange.com/a/5766/7790

Please take a look, hope this helps.

    I clearly mentioned its not directly possible which means there is no equivalent feature. Please read before down voting any answer.
