Can I create, sign and broadcast transaction using sendtoaddress RPC method? And what the between sendtoaddress and (createrawtransaction + signrawtransaction + sendrawtransaction) RPC methods?

1 Answer 1


SendToAddressis a convenience method that handles input selection and building the transaction for you. You don't get any control over which inputs are selected.

Using the CreateRawTransaction + SignRawTrasaction + SendRawTransaction methods, you can control the exact composition of your transaction, and set the inputs, outputs, and fee with a very high precision.
