I'm trying to get transactions infos out of the bitcoin core wallet with the console. For that I picked a random transaction of a block from today and tried to access it with
Instead of a json-output with the decoded transaction I get
Invalid or non-wallet transaction id (code -5)
Shouldn't I be able to retrieve every transaction in the blockchain with this command?
How can I read/access the transactions included in mined blocks? I already did this on some altcoins with PoS and there is was possible for every transaction. Now with bitcoin it seems that only wallet transactions are available? Why is that and can I get around that to access / read the transactions on my own?
The same problem appears to be with the
getrawtransaction command, so I can even decode a transaction on my own.
I run a bitcoin core 0.14.2 and my blockchain is up-to-date.
