Return the raw transaction data.
By default this function only works for mempool transactions. When called with a blockhash argument, getrawtransaction will return the transaction if the specified block is available and the transaction is found in that block. When called without a blockhash argument, getrawtransaction will return the transaction if it is in the mempool, or if -txindex is enabled and the transaction is in a block in the blockchain.
Hint: Use gettransaction for wallet transactions.
If verbose is ‘true’, returns an Object with information about ‘txid’.
If verbose is ‘false’ or omitted, returns a string that is serialized, hex-encoded data for ‘txid’.

Argument #1 - txid

Type: string, required
The transaction id

Argument #2 - verbose

Type: boolean, optional, default=false
If false, return a string, otherwise return a json object

Argument #3 - blockhash

Type: string, optional
The block in which to look for the transaction
Result (if verbose is not set or set to false)
The serialized, hex-encoded data for ‘txid’
Result (if verbose is set to true)
