What could I be doing wrong?

  • What is your bitcoin core version? also, can you try bitcoin-cli -regtest getblockchaininfo? – vincenzopalazzo Sep 16 at 12:39
  • using the latest, 0.18.1 – Jeffrey L. Roberts Sep 16 at 12:42

I don't know the listaccounts, getaccount and setaccount commands inside the Bitcoin core 18.1.

I think you have used the wrong commands with the bitcoin 18.1, perhaps the equivalents are:

But before you use this command look the official documentation rpc framework

accounts method was deprecated in v0.17 and was removed since v0.18. accounts was replaced by label and it provides more flexibility as compared to before such as setting label on any address, not just receiving address. It also irons out issues raised in the past. If you are used to using accounts to mimic separate wallets, you now have an option to use separate wallets in separate wallet files in Bitcoin Core.

So according to the commands you are looking, you will replace them by:

  1. getaccount with getaddressinfo
  2. listaccounts with listlabels
  3. setaccount with setlabel

You can see the full documentation of accounts vs labels in the v0.17 release docs.
