Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Method: POST getbalance


Method RPC getbalance example for Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

POST getbalance

Method not allowed

Returns the total available balance.

The available balance is what the wallet considers currently spendable, and is thus affected by options which limit spendability such as -spendzeroconfchange.


dummy - string, optional

Remains for backward compatibility. Must be excluded or set to “*”.

minconf - numeric, optional, default=0

Only include transactions confirmed at least this many times.

include_watchonly - boolean, optional, default=true for watch-only wallets, otherwise false

Also include balance in watch-only addresses (see ‘importaddress’)

avoid_reuse - boolean, optional, default=true

(only available if avoid_reuse wallet flag is set) Do not include balance in dirty outputs; addresses are considered dirty if they have previously been used in a transaction.
