signrawtransactionwithkey (rawtransactions command)

Bitcoin Core 24.2 RPC

signrawtransactionwithkey "hexstring" ["privatekey",...] ( [{"txid":"hex","vout":n,"scriptPubKey":"hex","redeemScript":"hex","witnessScript":"hex","amount":amount},...] "sighashtype" )

Sign inputs for raw transaction (serialized, hex-encoded).

The second argument is an array of base58-encoded private

keys that will be the only keys used to sign the transaction.

The third optional argument (may be null) is an array of previous transaction outputs that

this transaction depends on but may not yet be in the block chain.

4. sighashtype                      (string, optional, default="DEFAULT for Taproot, ALL otherwise") The signature hash type. Must be one of:
