sendrawtransaction (rawtransactions command)

Bitcoin Core 24.1 RPC

sendrawtransaction "hexstring" ( maxfeerate )

Submit a raw transaction (serialized, hex-encoded) to local node and network.

The transaction will be sent unconditionally to all peers, so using sendrawtransaction

for manual rebroadcast may degrade privacy by leaking the transaction's origin, as

nodes will normally not rebroadcast non-wallet transactions already in their mempool.

A specific exception, RPC_TRANSACTION_ALREADY_IN_CHAIN, may throw if the transaction cannot be added to the mempool.

Related RPCs: createrawtransaction, signrawtransactionwithkey

Arguments

1. hexstring     (string, required) The hex string of the raw transaction
2. maxfeerate    (numeric or string, optional, default="0.10") Reject transactions whose fee rate is higher than the specified value, expressed in BTC/kvB.
                 Set to 0 to accept any fee rate.
                 

Result

"hex"    (string) The transaction hash in hex

> bitcoin-cli createrawtransaction "[{\"txid\" : \"mytxid\",\"vout\":0}]" "{\"myaddress\":0.01}"
