The setgenerate RPC has been removed in version Bitcoin Core v0.13, in 2016.

Use the generateblock or generatetoaddress RPCs instead.

  • thanks for your reply | can you explain exactly what the mining command is going to be with generateblock? and do i put this like this bitcoin-cli blockgenerate or in the console from the qt blockgenerate? and will this solo mine non stop or isn't this the same mining as set generate true 1.

  • You can make any changes you want in your own copy of the source code to add such an RPC back if you want, but you're on your own then. The software does not support it. Oct 12 at 12:01
