I can use getblock json rpc method to get parsed block details, however I need the actual raw data.

Is there any way to get raw block data using Bitcoin Core?


1 Answer 1


There's a boolean parameter to that RPC call that'll return it as a hex string representing the binary contents of the block.

If verbosity is 0, returns a string that is serialized, hex-encoded data for block 'hash'

getblock 'hash' 0 should return what you want.
