getrawtransaction "txid" ( verbose "blockhash" )

The getrawtransaction RPC gets a hex-encoded serialized transaction or a JSON object describing the transaction. By default, Bitcoin Core only stores complete transaction data for UTXOs and your own transactions, so the RPC may fail on historic transactions unless you use the non-default `txindex=1` in your Bitcoin Core startup settings.

bitcoin-cli getrawtransaction ...
Note: The transaction id.
Note: If false, return a string, otherwise return a json object, default false.
Note: The block in which to look for the transaction, optional.

getrawtransaction "txid" ( verbose "blockhash" )

Return the raw transaction data.

By default this function only works for mempool transactions. When called with a blockhash
argument, getrawtransaction will return the transaction if the specified block is available and
the transaction is found in that block. When called without a blockhash argument, getrawtransaction
will return the transaction if it is in the mempool, or if -txindex is enabled and the transaction
is in a block in the blockchain.

Hint: Use gettransaction for wallet transactions.

If verbose is 'true', returns an Object with information about 'txid'.
If verbose is 'false' or omitted, returns a string that is serialized, hex-encoded data for 'txid'.

Arguments:
1. txid         (string, required) The transaction id
2. verbose      (boolean, optional, default=false) If false, return a string, otherwise return a json object
3. blockhash    (string, optional) The block in which to look for the transaction

Result (if verbose is not set or set to false):
"data"      (string) The serialized, hex-encoded data for 'txid'
