I would like to know if invoking the submitblock RPC is supposed to work if the daemon that handles the RPC does not have the private-keys for to the coinbase output address?


submitblock is not a wallet RPC so it does not need private keys nor is it related to anything in the wallet. It can be used even if the wallet is disabled.

  • So submitting a block to a node on behalf of your "real" wallet controlled by another node is a supported use case? – Oliver Weichhold Nov 19 '18 at 18:21
  • Yes. Block's aren't tied to wallets... You don't need a wallet to create a block, and a block does not need to be created by a wallet. – Andrew Chow Nov 19 '18 at 18:25
  • I ran into this issue github.com/vergecurrency/VERGE/issues/646 but hey that's VERGE /sigh – Oliver Weichhold Nov 19 '18 at 18:29
