    Hi, I am running a headless instance of vericoind on RPi3.
    I wanted to test sending a coin to a new address, so I unlocked my wallet, and used the 'sendtoaddress' using the the command:

    ./vericoind sendtoaddress VRJveiX6x7EmrNYJ1tjCKy5AfQiujsnKig 1

    It gave me a transaction reference:


    However, it has also sent 139VRC to another address and I do not understand why, please see the following link for details:

    Please could someone explain what is going on?

    Many thanks in advance,

    That's not an error. It's called a change address. You can use your coin control feature in your wallet settings to auto-send change to an address you choose. Read more about change addresses here:

    Hi pnosker,

    Many thanks for coming back to me. I am puzzled as to why my command:

    ./vericoind sendtoaddress VRJveiX6x7EmrNYJ1tjCKy5AfQiujsnKig 1

    has caused this... I have sent 1 VRC to an address, no?

    I do not have a GUI wallet, just a headless node. Which command do I use if I just wish to send some VRC to another address?

    Also, my vericoind has got stuck at block 1622617, with my balance as showing at ~139 VRC and ~5K stuck in staking.

    $ ./vericoind getinfo

    The debug.log isn't showing any new blocks, just messages about orphan blocks and misbehaving nodes:

    connection timeout

    Any assistance you can provide would be very gratefully received. Thanks in advance,
