In PHP I run

$bitcoin->listtransactions("count = 5, offset = 0");

In the hope of getting 5 transactions only, but I get the response


When I run $bitcoin->listtransactions(); alone, it works fine.

What am I doing wrong?

According to documentation, there are several optional parameters you can provide in order to retrieve list of transactions for account(s).


listtransactions [account] [count=10] [skip=0] [include_watch_only]
  1. [account] (string) leave "" for default account and "*" for all accounts, default ""

  2. [count] (int) number of recent tx to return, default is 10

  3. [skip] (int) number of recent tx not to return, default is 0

  4. [include_watch_only] (bool) include watch-only addresses, default is false

I suggest to try the call with all 4 parameters:

$bitcoin->listtransactions("*", 10, 0, false);

I am not PHP expert but the output you get might be indication of missing parameters.

  • None of those parameters are required - but passing in the first parameter like that tells bitcoin that you want all transactions from the account named count = 5, offset = 0.
