I'm wondering where goes the BTC as my bitcoin server finds a block?

Using bitcoind, I see no setting for a bitcoin address..

  • I guess it makes a new address for the reward. May 2, 2013 at 12:03

Apparently, bitcoind creates a new address for the block reward and puts it directly in your wallet.dat file.

I suppose it is stored in your default wallet, but as a new address.
