Useful commands?

I have the following so far:
src/zcash-cli zcbenchmark solveequihash 5 # check speed of 2 solves
src/zcash-cli getinfo
src/zcash-cli listtransactions
src/zcash-cli listunspent
lsof -i | grep zcashd # show connections, look for “established” at leastauthority
src/zcash-cli getblockcount # block number
src/zcash-cli getdifficulty
src/zcash-cli getblocksubsidy [block number]

How do I get “balance” directly without info and my blocks gained?


src/zcash-cli getbalance

On a tangentially related note, you could copy zcash-cli to your /bin folder so you can run it from anywhere:
sudo cp src/zcash-cli /bin/zcash-cli

I have been using this list for commands to use with Zcash.

Many (but not all) work the same way with Zcash as with Bitcoin since Zcash uses Bitcoin core.

better add an alias to your .profile

alias zcash-cli=“/home/zcash/src/zcash-cli”

./src/zcash-cli help
returns a list of commands

Heads up there’s this page: zcash/ at master · zcash/zcash · GitHub

And of course you can always run: man zcashd which gives full explaination of commands (both zcash specific and those ported from bitcoin)
