Unknown transaction in wallet after setup

+1 vote

I noticed a single transaction in all my node wallet soon after setup. I had not even created assets. I only did operations (getbestblockhash, getinfo) to be sure the rpc connection was fine.

Please can you explain this?

what was the command used to get the number/list of transaction in the wallet? Blocks will keep getting added and shall be reflected in all the nodes. Single or more transaction should be visible in the primary node having mining permission as coin base transactions would be performed in the target block time frame.

This will be the coinbase transaction for the genesis block, in which the blockchain was started. You can safely ignore it, though we'll look into removing it from the output in future.

So just to update, it can't be removed, because you need there to be one unspent output for spending in the first node, so it can start granting permissions and doing everything else.
