I need help here as it has been almost a week since I've been trying to figure this out. Fyi, I can get my Python Script running using "Mainnet" for Bitcoin Transaction that able to execute and produce the following results: Tx ID:8b547dd1e6393b4279afe6e083b3b563b929d09ab5bfdbf55c773c84af10b047

bc1qelvkpyjqc6j4smr5n4mscn86pphuv5nxugnvz9 --> P2WPKH Receiving Address

Raw transaction:


Raw signed transaction:


However, when I check the above Tax ID, is not in the Blockchain Explorer due to in my Python Script (that's where I've run this it does not "SET" or "POST" into Bitcoin Network)

I do need guidance on how to connect or post my Python Bitcoin Transaction Script to the Bitcoin Network?

My apology as I'm not an expert and I'm quite a nerd but who is willing to learn.

Appreciate your kind guidance on my situation here.

Thanking you in advance

  • What are you trying to do? – vincenzopalazzo Sep 1 '20 at 16:07
  • @vincenzopalazzo - sorry to make you confused, My goal is to Run the Script in conjunction with having connected to Bitcoin Network so that my TXID is posted and the transaction goes through. – Jsim Sep 2 '20 at 3:19
  • Your transaction is trying to spend an output (13d2d30eca974e8fa5da11b9608fa36905a22215e8df895e767fc903889367ff:0) that does not exist (and never existed as far as I can see), so this cannot work. How did you construct the transaction? – Pieter Wuille Sep 13 '20 at 3:04
  • @PieterWuile I run that using Atom Editor without connecting to rpc_user and rpc_password. This is why in the Blockchain Explorer, it does not have or exist. – Jsim Sep 13 '20 at 5:31
  • What editor you use isn't relevant. What program did you use to construct the transaction? It is invalid. – Pieter Wuille Sep 13 '20 at 7:48
