              Specify configuration file. Relative paths will be prefixed by
              datadir location. (default: bitcoin.conf)


              Specify data directory


              Get general information from the remote server. Note that unlike
              server-side RPC calls, the results of -getinfo is the result of
              multiple non-atomic requests. Some entries in the result may
              represent results from different states (e.g. wallet balance may
              be as of a different block from the chain state reported)


              Pass named instead of positional arguments (default: false)


              Timeout in seconds during HTTP requests, or 0 for no timeout.
              (default: 900)


              Send commands to node running on <ip> (default:

              Send RPC for non-default wallet on RPC server (needs to exactly
              match corresponding -wallet option passed to bitcoind). This
              changes the RPC endpoint used, e.g.


              Read extra arguments from standard input, one per line until
              EOF/Ctrl-D (recommended for sensitive information such as
              passphrases). When combined with -stdinrpcpass, the first line
              from standard input is used for the RPC password.


              Read RPC password from standard input as a single line. When
              combined with -stdin, the first line from standard input is used
              for the RPC password.


              Print version and exit
