For convenience purposes let's say I need to make these payments (and let's pretend that tx fees do not exist):
- Address A: 1 BTC
- Address B: 2 BTC
- Address C: 3 BTC
My balance is 6 BTC that consists of these spendable inputs:
- Tx1: 0.5 BTC
- Tx2: 0.5 BTC
- Tx3: 0.5 BTC
- Tx4: 4.5 BTC
It's easy now to create a raw tx using
createrawtransaction and since the inputs' sum matches the outputs' sum (and we pretend there are no tx fees whatsoever) everything will work as expected.
But what if I must (for business purposes) use specific inputs for each output?
An example would be:
- Address A will be paid inputs: Tx1 and Tx3
- Address B and Address C will be paid by inputs: Tx2 and Tx4
These will be batch payments and I plan to be sending batches of 20-30 logical payments per raw tx, so I would like to avoid breaking down the raw tx into small, atomic (per-logical-payments) transactions.
Is that even possible with raw transactions?
