createrawtransaction [{"txid":"hex","vout":n,"sequence":n},...] [{"address":amount},{"address":},{"data":"hex"},...] ( locktime )

Create a transaction spending the given inputs and creating new outputs.
Outputs can be addresses or data.
Returns hex-encoded raw transaction.
Note that the transaction's inputs are not signed, and
it is not stored in the wallet or transmitted to the network.

1. inputs                              (json array, required) A json array of json objects
     [
       {                               (json object)
         "txid": "hex",                (string, required) The transaction id
         "vout": n,                    (numeric, required) The output number
         "sequence": n,                (numeric, optional) The sequence number

       ...
     ]
2. outputs                             (json array, required) a json array with outputs (key-value pairs).
                                       For compatibility reasons, a dictionary, which holds the key-value pairs directly, is also
                                       accepted as second parameter.
     [
       {                               (json object)
         "address": amount,            (numeric or string, required) A key-value pair. The key (string) is the Bitcoin Cash address, the value (float or string) is the amount in BCH
       },
       {                               (json object)
         "address": {                  (json object, required) A key-value pair. The key (string) is the Bitcoin Cash address, the value is a JSON object
           "amount": amount,           (numeric or string, required) The amount in BCH

             "category": "hex",        (string, required) The token id
             "amount": n,              (numeric, optional) The token fungible amount, use JSON strings for >53-bit amounts
             "nft": {                  (json object, optional) NFT data for the token
               "capability": "str",    (string, optional) One of "none", "mutable", "minting"
               "commitment": "hex",    (string, optional) The token NFT commitment

         },
       },
       {                               (json object)
         "data": "hex",                (string, required) A key-value pair. The key must be "data", the value is a hex-encoded data string or an array of hex-encoded data strings (each item yields a separate data push)
       },
       ...
     ]
3. locktime                            (numeric, optional, default=0) Raw locktime. Non-0 value also locktime-activates inputs

Result
