Hey fellow Bitcoiners

Everytime that I import a private key into the Bitcoin Core wallet ( importprivkey ) the client automatically starts rescanning. But I want to be able to import several private keys then convert them to segwit addresses ( addwitnessaddress ) then finally do a full rescan.

Anyone know how to turn off the auto rescanning after importing a key into Bitcoin Core?

Not sure how you would turn it off, ( As i don't think adding an argument is possible?) but you do can either import multiple adresses using

Code:
importmulti

Which means that for 10 private keys you import you only need to rescan it once.

I also think you can add a custom
Code:
timestamp
, which determines from where the rescan will take place, ( 0 = genesis block?)

Thanks for the info

Meanwhile also found out that there is a parameter "rescan" thay you can set true or false ( both for the multi as the regular private key import ).
