z_getnewaccount - Zcash 5.2.0 RPC


Prepares and returns a new account.

Accounts are numbered starting from zero; this RPC method selects the next
available sequential account number within the UA-compatible HD seed phrase.

Each new account is a separate group of funds within the wallet, and adds an
additional performance cost to wallet scanning.

Use the z_getaddressforaccount RPC method to obtain addresses for an account.

  "account": n,       (numeric) the new account number
