Running a simple local setup with 3 nodes in regtest mode. Getblocktemplate tells me the coinbasevalue = 25 bitcoins but the block height is only 202. Shouldn't the coinbasevalue = 50 bitcoins?

  • What base software did you use, please, some more details!

  • Running the latest version of bitcoind ( on linux. Have three local nodes in regtest mode connected to each other. Block height = 202. Maybe the block reward is based on the actual current block reward and not my local block height?

In regtest mode, the block reward halves every 150 blocks instead of every 210000 blocks. See the consensus.nSubsidyHalvingInterval settings in chainparams.cpp.
