I want to generate P2SH-P2WSH with script P2PKH.

My public key is    027712968e8f2f9dfa79abe10940a3d915a0c95a0b97750881e6201acf2b66da97

SHA256 and RIPEMD160 of Public key

 ---------- Witness Script --------- 

 ---------- scripthash --------- 
#SHA 256 of Witness script    

  ---------- Redeeem script ---------     
#add OP_0 (0x0020{32-byte scripthash})

  ---------- SCRIPTPUBKEY --------- 
#RIPEMD160(redeem script)
#OP_HASH160 hash160(redeemScript) OP_EQUAL

#C4A9149fbb6d60a6d26f67b9673334c3863cdec224169787 base58 cecksum

Now I want to try to spend form this address.

bitcoin-cli signrawtransactionwithkey $TX_DATA '["'$PK'"]' '[{"txid":"'$TXID'","vout":'$VOUT',"redeemScript":"'$REDEEMSCRIPT'","scriptPubKey":"'$SCRIPTPUBKEY'","witnessScript":"'$WITNESSCRIPT'","amount":"'$TOTAL_UTXO_AMOUNT'"}]'

I receive this error

redeemScript does not correspond to witnessScript

  • Are you trying to build a backward-compatible segwit P2WPKH address (P2SH-P2WPKH)? Mar 31, 2020 at 17:12
  • I think you have an extra "00" in your redeem script before the {32-byte scripthash}. The serialized version of the redeem script must be: (0x220020{32-byte-hash}). The firs "22" corresponds to the 34 (in hex) of the length of the following script. The next "00" corresponds to the OP_0. The next "20" represents the length of the hash (32 bytes in hex). So the "00" represents the OP_0, but you are repeating this item in your script. Mar 31, 2020 at 17:37
  • @OscarSerna thanks to reply I try to add 22, it's my redeem script 2200200c3727796d979c4d9ac585736a33dd6a976a3f290e96a6cc6ddac993ee6b4c8b but I have the same problem

At the time this question was asked, this issue was the result of a bug in Bitcoin Core. It was fixed in PR #18484 and is available in Bitcoin Core 0.20+.


Hashing Redeeem script to use in SCRIPTPUBKEY uses the wrong hash algorithm.

RIPEMD160(Redscript) = f23bde7eee22aabca28164cb4b8a977834e5441b but we want HASH160 which is

RIPEMD160(SHA256(Redscript)) = c39f7f611a844bd7118dac9166fa9c1398676c30

(I used this script to calculate it)

  • hey thanks :), I updated my question with you suggest. but I have the same problem. the values are differents because I have a script to generate my address

You can use bitcoinjs Lib.

function generateAddress('P2WSH', publicKeyHash, network)   {  

    return redeemScript = bitcoin.script.witnessPubKeyHash.output.encode(publicKeyHash);
                let redeemScriptHash = bitcoin.script.scriptHash.output.encode(bitcoin.crypto.hash160(redeemScript));
                address = bitcoin.address.fromOutputScript(redeemScriptHash, network);
        // create new random key pair of eliptic curves
            let keyPair = bitcoin.ECPair.makeRandom({network: network});

            // public key buffer
            let publicKeyBuffer = keyPair.getPublicKeyBuffer();

            // public key hash
            let publicKeyHash = bitcoin.crypto.hash160(publicKeyBuffer);

            // generate Address
            let address = generateAddress('P2WSH', publicKeyHash, network);

            // return wallet
            let wallet = {
              "address": address,
              "privateKey": keyPair.toWIF()
  • Thanks @Hamza, I don't want use external library. I want to do all the hard work :P
