getblock

getblock "blockhash" ( verbosity )

If verbosity is 0, returns a string that is serialized, hex-encoded data for block ‘hash’.

If verbosity is 1, returns an Object with information about block <hash>.

If verbosity is 2, returns an Object with information about block <hash> and information about each transaction.

Argument #1 - blockhash

Type: string, required

The block hash

Argument #2 - verbosity

Type: numeric, optional, default=1

0 for hex encoded data, 1 for a json object, and 2 for json object with transaction data

Result (for verbosity = 0)
