17.20.3. Description

taler-exchange-drain is used to trigger a wire transfer from the exchange’s escrow account to a normal (non-escrowed) bank account of the exchange. The entire drain process is necessary to ensure that the auditor is aware of the balance changes arising from an exchange making profits from fees.
