VerifyTxOutProof

The verifytxoutproof RPC verifies that a proof points to one or more transactions in a block, returning the transactions the proof commits to and throwing an RPC error if the block is not in our best block chain.

Parameter #1—The hex-encoded proof generated by gettxoutproof

Name Type Presence Description
proof string Required A hex-encoded proof

Result—txid(s) which the proof commits to

Name Type Presence Description
result string Required
(exactly 1)
The txid(s) which the proof commits to, or empty array if the proof is invalid
