getbalance - Zcash 5.5.0 RPC

getbalance ( "(dummy)" minconf includeWatchonly inZat asOfHeight )

Returns the wallet's available transparent balance. This total
currently includes transparent balances associated with unified
accounts. Prefer to use `z_getbalanceforaccount` instead.

1. (dummy)          (string, optional) Remains for backward compatibility. Must be excluded or set to "*" or "".
2. minconf          (numeric, optional, default=0) Only include transactions confirmed at least this many times.
3. includeWatchonly (bool, optional, default=false) Also include balance in watchonly addresses (see 'importaddress')
4. inZat            (bool, optional, default=false) Get the result amount in zatoshis (as an integer).
5. asOfHeight       (numeric, optional, default=-1) Execute the query as if it
                    were run when the blockchain was at the height specified by
                    this argument. The default is to use the entire blockchain
                    that the node is aware of. -1 can be used as in other RPC
                    calls to indicate the current height (including the
                    mempool), but this does not support negative values in
                    general. A “future” height will fall back to the current
                    height. Any explicit value will cause the mempool to be
                    ignored, meaning no unconfirmed tx will be considered.
                    `minconf` must be at least 1 when `asOfHeight` is provided.

amount              (numeric) The total amount in ZEC(or zatoshis if inZat is true) received.

Bitcoin compatibility:
