POST Create a New Bootstrapping Intent{protocol}/{network}/bootstrapping-intents

Creates a new account bootstrapping intent transaction.

Returns an unsigned transaction that sets up the user’s wallet for delegation. It is required to sign and send this transaction only once, the very first time the user is going to delegate. If this step is not completed, any subsequent delegation transactions will fail.
