getbalance ( "dummy" minconf include_watchonly avoid_reuse )

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.

Argument #1 - dummy

Type: string, optional

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

Argument #2 - minconf

Type: numeric, optional, default=0

Only include transactions confirmed at least this many times.

Argument #3 - include_watchonly

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

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

Argument #4 - avoid_reuse

Type: 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.







The total amount in BTC received for this wallet.


The total amount in the wallet with 0 or more confirmations:

bitcoin-cli getbalance

The total amount in the wallet with at least 6 confirmations:

bitcoin-cli getbalance "*" 6
