getbalance (wallet command)

Bitcoin Core 24.2 RPC

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.


1. dummy                (string, optional) Remains for backward compatibility. Must be excluded or set to "*".
2. minconf              (numeric, optional, default=0) Only include transactions confirmed at least this many times.
3. include_watchonly    (boolean, optional, default=true for watch-only wallets, otherwise false) Also include balance in watch-only addresses (see 'importaddress')
4. 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.


n    (numeric) 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
