RPC
Legacy Chain Remote Procedure Calls (RPC)
Nexus started out as a clone of peercoin and today it has upgraded to an advanced contract platform. Nexus still supports the legacy chain which uses Remote Procedure Calls (RPC). Some exchanges still use RPC. The legacy support will be stopped in the future and is not recommended for normal users. Tritium is far superior and also does away with key management and regular backups.
Users can also access RPC via the console in legacy mode. Entering the text β€˜Help’ into the console and then pressing Execute will provide a complete list of all the console commands as below:

RPC Commands:

  • addmultisigaddress <["key","key"]> [account] - Add a required-to-sign multisignature address to the wallet each key is a nexus address or hex-encoded public key. If [account] is specified, assign address to [account].
  • backupwallet <destination> - Safely copies wallet.dat to destination, which can be a directory or a path with filename.
  • checkwallet - Check wallet for integrity.
  • dumpprivkey <NexusAddress> - Reveals the private key corresponding to <NexusAddress>.

  • help [command] - List commands, or get help for a command.
  • importprivkey <PrivateKey> [label] - Adds a private key (as returned by dumpprivkey) to your Wallet.
  • isorphan <hash> - Returns whether a block is an orphan or not.

  • listaddresses [max=100] - Returns list of addresses
  • listreceivedbyaccount [minconf=1] [includeempty=false] - [minconf] is the minimum number of confirmations before payments are included. [includeempty] whether to include accounts that haven't received any payments. This returns an array of objects containing:

  • listunspent [minconf=1] [maxconf=9999999] ["address",...] - Returns array of unspent transaction outputswith between minconf and maxconf (inclusive) confirmations. Optionally filtered to only include txouts paid to specified addresses. The results are an array of objects, each of which has:{txid, vout, scriptPubKey, amount, confirmations}
  • makekeypair [prefix] - Make a public/private key pair. [prefix] is optional preferred prefix for the public key.

  • reset - Restart all node connections
  • sendfrom <fromaccount> <toNexusaddress> <amount> [minconf=1] [comment] [comment-to] - <amount> is a real and is rounded to the nearest 0.000001 requires wallet passphrase to be set with walletpassphrase first.

Core Output: Depending on what setting you use for β€˜Verbose’, this will show you live output from your actual Nexus Node. We don’t recommend every user watch this closely, as it is more technical information. But if you are ever curious to see what is going on under the hood, this is the place to watch.
