I found these sweep transaction instructions for Monero but cannot find anything similar for AEON. Does a similar feature exist? If not what is the AEON strategy for dealing with lots of dust generated from mining payments or many other small transactions?
Right now, with release 0.9.8.0, it isn't possible, as there's no equivalent sweep command in Aeon's CLI.
I asked your question on Slack today, and this is what moneromooo had to say on the topic:
I think it's fairly new in monero. I also think it relies on the new tx composition algorithm, so not an easy port.
It'd be possible to add a function to do this using the previous algorithm, but it's less well suited and might well fail pretty often, which makes it not very useful.
Hope this answers your question.
