       This help message

       Receive and display P2P network alerts (default: 1)

       Execute command when a relevant alert is received or we see a really
       long fork (%s in cmd is replaced by message)

       Execute command when the best block changes (%s in cmd is replaced by
       block hash)

       How many blocks to check at startup (default: 288, 0 = all)

       How thorough the block verification of -checkblocks is (0-4, default: 3)

       Specify configuration file (default: pastel.conf)

       Run in the background as a daemon and accept commands

       Set database cache size in megabytes (4 to 16384, default: 450)

       Imports blocks from external blk000??.dat file on startup

       Keep at most <n> unconnectable transactions in memory (default: 100)

       Set the number of script verification threads (-16 to 16, 0 = auto, <0 =
       leave that many cores free, default: 0)

       Specify pid file (default:

       Reduce storage requirements by pruning (deleting) old blocks. This mode
       disables wallet support and is incompatible with -txindex. Warning:
       Reverting this setting requires re-downloading the entire blockchain.
       (default: 0 = disable pruning blocks, >550 = target size in MiB to use
       for block files)

       Rebuild block chain index from current blk000??.dat files on startup

       Create new files with system default permissions, instead of umask 077
       (only effective with disabled wallet functionality)

       Maintain a full transaction index, used by the getrawtransaction rpc
       call (default: 0)

Connection options:

       Add a node to connect to and attempt to keep the connection open

       Threshold for disconnecting misbehaving peers (default: 100)

       Number of seconds to keep misbehaving peers from reconnecting (default:

       Bind to given address and always listen on it. Use [host]:port notation
       for IPv6

       Connect only to the specified node(s)

       Discover own IP addresses (default: 1 when listening and no -externalip
       or -proxy)

       Allow DNS lookups for -addnode, -seednode and -connect (default: 1)

       Query for peer addresses via DNS lookup, if low on addresses (default: 1
       unless -connect)

       Specify your own public address

       Always query for peer addresses via DNS lookup (default: 0)

       Accept connections from outside (default: 1 if no -proxy or -connect)

       Automatically create Tor hidden service (default: 1)

       Maintain at most <n> connections to peers (default: 125)

       Maximum per-connection receive buffer, <n>*1000 bytes (default: 5000)

       Maximum per-connection send buffer, <n>*1000 bytes (default: 1000)

       Use separate SOCKS5 proxy to reach peers via Tor hidden services
       (default: -proxy)

       Only connect to nodes in network <net> (ipv4, ipv6 or onion)

       Relay non-P2SH multisig (default: 1)

       Listen for connections on <port> (default: 9933 or testnet: 19933)

       Support filtering of blocks and transaction with Bloom filters (default:

       Connect through SOCKS5 proxy

       Randomize credentials for every proxy connection. This enables Tor
       stream isolation (default: 1)

       Connect to a node to retrieve peer addresses, and disconnect

       Specify connection timeout in milliseconds (minimum: 1, default: 5000)

       Tor control port to use if onion listening enabled (default:

       Tor control port password (default: empty)

       Bind to given address and whitelist peers connecting to it. Use
       [host]:port notation for IPv6

       Whitelist peers connecting from the given netmask or IP address. Can be
       specified multiple times. Whitelisted peers cannot be DoS banned and
       their transactions are always relayed, even if they are already in the
       mempool, useful e.g. for a gateway

Wallet options:

       Do not load the wallet and disable wallet RPC calls

       Set key pool size to <n> (default: 100)

       Fee (in PSL/kB) to add to transactions you send (default: 0.00)

       Rescan the block chain for missing wallet transactions on startup

       Attempt to recover private keys from a corrupt wallet.dat on startup

       Send transactions as zero-fee transactions if possible (default: 0)

       Spend unconfirmed change when sending transactions (default: 1)

       If paytxfee is not set, include enough fee so transactions begin
       confirmation on average within n blocks (default: 2)

       Set the number of blocks after which a transaction that has not been
       mined will become invalid (min: 4, default: 20)

       Maximum total fees (in PSL) to use in a single wallet transaction;
       setting this too low may abort large transactions (default: 0.10)

       Upgrade wallet to latest format on startup

       Specify wallet file (within data directory) (default: wallet.dat)

       Make the wallet broadcast transactions (default: 1)

       Execute command when a wallet transaction changes (%s in cmd is replaced
       by TxID)

       Delete all wallet transactions and only recover those parts of the
       blockchain through -rescan on startup (1 = keep tx meta data e.g.
       account owner and payment request information, 2 = drop tx meta data)

ZeroMQ notification options:

       Enable publish hash block in <address>

       Enable publish hash transaction in <address>

       Enable publish raw block in <address>

       Enable publish raw transaction in <address>

Debugging/Testing options:

       Output debugging information (default: 0, supplying <category> is
       optional). If <category> is not supplied or if <category> = 1, output
       all debugging information. <category> can be: addrman, alert, bench,
       coindb, compress, db, estimatefee, http, libevent, lock, mempool, net,
       partitioncheck, pow, proxy, prune, rand, reindex, rpc, selectcoins, tor,
       zmq, zrpc, zrpcunsafe (implies zrpc).

       Enable use of experimental features

       Show all debugging options (usage: --help -help-debug)

       Include IP addresses in debug output (default: 0)

       Prepend debug output with timestamp (default: 1)

       Fees (in PSL/kB) smaller than this are considered zero fee for relaying
       (default: 0.001)

       Send trace/debug info to console instead of debug.log file

       Shrink debug.log file on client startup (default: 1 when no -debug)

       Use the test network

Node relay options:

       Relay and mine data carrier transactions (default: 1)

       Maximum size of data in data carrier transactions we relay and mine
       (default: 80)

Block creation options:

       Set minimum block size in bytes (default: 0)

       Set maximum block size in bytes (default: 2000000)

       Accept public REST requests (default: 0)

       Bind to given address to listen for JSON-RPC connections. Use
       [host]:port notation for IPv6. This option can be specified multiple
       times (default: bind to all interfaces)

       Username for JSON-RPC connections

       Password for JSON-RPC connections

       Listen for JSON-RPC connections on <port> (default: 9932 or testnet:

       Allow JSON-RPC connections from specified source. Valid for <ip> are a
       single IP (e.g., a network/netmask (e.g.
       or a network/CIDR (e.g. This option can be specified
       multiple times

       Set the number of threads to service RPC calls (default: 4)

Metrics Options (only if -daemon and -printtoconsole are not set):

       Show metrics on stdout (default: 1 if running in a console, 0 otherwise)

       Set to 1 for a persistent metrics screen, 0 for sequential metrics
       output (default: 1 if running in a console, 0 otherwise)

       Number of seconds between metrics refreshes (default: 1 if running in a
