Bitcoin-SV (BSV)

Method: POST importpubkey


POST importpubkey

Method not allowed

Adds a public key (in hex) that can be watched as if it were in your wallet but cannot be used to spend. Requires a new wallet backup.

Hint use importmulti to import more than one public key.

Note This call can take over an hour to complete if rescan is true, during that time, other rpc calls may report that the imported pubkey exists but related transactions are still missing, leading to temporarily incorrect/bogus balances and unspent outputs until rescan completes.

Note Use “getwalletinfo” to query the scanning progress.


pubkey - string, required

The hex-encoded public key

label - string, optional, default=””

An optional label

rescan - boolean, optional, default=true

Rescan the wallet for transactions
