Return information about all known tips in the block tree, including the main chain as well as orphaned branches.


    "height": xxxx,         (numeric) height of the chain tip
    "hash": "xxxx",         (string) block hash of the tip
    "branchlen": 0          (numeric) zero for main chain
    "status": "active"      (string) "active" for the main chain
    "height": xxxx,
    "hash": "xxxx",
    "branchlen": 1          (numeric) length of branch connecting the tip to the main chain
    "status": "xxxx"        (string) status of the chain (active, valid-fork, valid-headers, headers-only, invalid)

Possible values for status:

  1. "invalid" This branch contains at least one invalid block
  2. "headers-only" Not all blocks for this branch are available, but the headers are valid
  3. "valid-headers" All blocks are available for this branch, but they were never fully validated
  4. "valid-fork" This branch is not part of the active chain, but is fully validated
  5. "active" This is the tip of the active main chain, which is certainly valid
