I'm trying to setup a local testnet with multiple nodes. Currently I have three nodes, and their mining powers are almost the same.

When I use listaccounts RPC call, all the wallets have 0 coins. Even when I call listunspent 0, there are no transactions listed. How do I check how many coins I have mined so far? There have been 50 blocks in the blockchain so far.

Thanks for your help.

Newly mined coins are immature and cannot be spent until 100 more blocks are mined.

bitcoind does not show immature coins as part of your balance, but you can see them using the listtransactions command, as I explain here.
