Use ElectrumG to broadcast raw transactions


While the official explorer offers raw transaction broadcasting feature (a link at the right bottom of the page), sometimes the transaction can be so large that it can’t even accept:

In this case, ElectrumG is another choice if you don’t have a running full node.

To do this, you need to:

  1. Enable console by “View > Show Console”

  2. Assuming you have stored the raw transaction (hex) in /tmp/tx.txt, execute the following code:

>> rawtx = open('/tmp/tx.txt').read()
>> broadcast(rawtx)

ElectrumG’s console is actually a pure Python interactive shell with BTG related functions exported. There are tons of interesting tools offered by ElectrumG. Check the documentation page and also try help() to learn more.
