       and rebroadcast of any transactions from inbound peers is
       disabled, unless '-whitelistforcerelay' is '1', in which case
       whitelisted peers' transactions will be relayed. RPC transactions
       are not affected. (default: 0)

       bloomfilter (allow requesting BIP37 filtered blocks and
       transactions), noban (do not ban for misbehavior), forcerelay
       (relay even non-standard transactions), relay (relay even in

Wallet options:

  -avoidpartialspends

       a per-output basis. Privacy is improved as an address is only
       used once (unless someone sends to it after spending from it),
       but may result in slightly higher fees as suboptimal coin
       selection may result due to the added limitation (default: 0)

       it is not absolute, and will be created if it does not exist (as
       a directory containing a wallet.dat file and log files). For
       backwards compatibility this will also accept names of existing
       data files in <walletdir>.)

       transaction creation (default: 0.00001)

  -paytxfee=<amt>
       Fee (in DASH/kB) to add to transactions you send (default: 0.00)
