When constructing a new transaction, I have reached the function cryptonote_core/cryptonote_tx_utils.cpp/construct_tx_with_tx_key() and I am trying to understand where the decoys came from? How and when are they selected?


The fake outputs are selected by the wallet in the wallet2::get_outs function, in src/wallet/wallet2.cpp.
