When I restart the Bitcoin node, I would like to load the wallet I created in the "wallets" subdirectory.

  1. bitcoin-cli createwallet "1"
  2. bitcoin-cli listwallets -> result : "", "1"
  3. bitcoin-cli -testnet stop
  4. bitcoind -testnet -daemon
  5. bitcoin-cli listwallets -> result : ""


1 Answer 1


You load a wallet using the loadwallet command.

To load the wallet named 1, do

bitcoin-cli loadwallet "1"

In order to have that specific wallet always loaded, add to your bitcoin.conf file:

  • Is there any way I can load it when the node starts? Aug 23, 2019 at 7:25
  • You add the bitcoin.conf line I mentioned in my answer.
