This question already has an answer here:

How do I get the balance of an arbitrary address using Bitcoin RPC calls? From the RPC calls I can see you are required to have the private key or an account to use the RPC.

For illustrations sake, if you could demo querying this address:

1HB5XMLmzFVj8ALj6mfBsbifRoD4miY36v

That would be great. Here is the actual balance for this address.

  • When a question has previously been answered, it is usually best to flag it as a duplicate, rather than posting a new answer. If you have information to add (like the pull request), please add it as an answer or comment to the previous question. – Nate Eldredge Nov 4 '14 at 2:50
  • @NateEldredge I obviously couldn't add a new answer to the previous question just to add the pull request info. I could post it as a comment but then again do you see a place it could fit? I don't. On top of that, a question should be marked as duplicate if not only the question context is identical to a previous question but their answers are also identical, at least according to our mod David Schwartz: meta.bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/45/… – George Kimionis Nov 4 '14 at 4:27
