How to use it

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum

import { TatumSDK, Litecoin, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum'

const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Litecoin>({network: Network.LITECOIN})

const result = await tatum.rpc.createRawTransaction([
      {
        "txid": "abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234",
        "vout": 0
      }
    ],
    {
      "1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa": 0.01
    })

await tatum.destroy() // Destroy Tatum SDK - needed for stopping background jobs

Overview

The createrawtransaction RPC method creates an unsigned raw transaction that spends a set of previous transaction outputs to a set of new addresses with specific amounts. The method can be used to create custom transactions, which can then be signed and broadcast to the Litecoin network.

Parameters

  • inputs: (array, required) An array of objects, each specifying a previous transaction output to spend.

    • txid: (string, required) The transaction ID of the previous transaction output to spend.

    • vout: (numeric, required) The index of the output to spend from the previous transaction.

    • sequence: (numeric, optional) default=depends on the value of the 'replaceable' and 'locktime' arguments) The sequence number

  • outputs: (object, required) An object with the key-value pairs representing the receiving address and the amount to be sent (in BTC).

  • locktime: (numeric, optional, default=0) The lock time for the transaction. It can be used to specify the earliest time or block height at which the transaction can be included in a block.

  • replaceable: (boolean, optional, default=false) Marks this transaction as BIP125-replaceable. Allows this transaction to be replaced by a transaction with higher fees. If provided, it is an error if explicit sequence numbers are incompatible.

Return Object

  • (string) A hex-encoded raw transaction.
