The API ListReceivedByAddress allows me to view a list a sum* of all the transactions that an address has received. This returns an array listing the sum of what was sent.

  • If the address is reused for more than one transaction, what is the expected value of "confirmations"?

  • Is the value of confirmations the Max, Min, or Average?

  • Should there be an entry listing how many transactions were sent to that address?


*Footnote I'm not entirely sure that the ListReceivedByAddress actually returns a sum of all transactions to that address. I assume it's possible that the value could be the first, last,or sum of all transactions to an address.

Quote from bitcoin wiki:

"confirmations" : number of confirmations of the most recent transaction included

Also, I think you might want to change the value of minconf that you pass to listrecievedbyaddress if you're concerned about knowing how many confirmations a transaction has.

Should there be an entry listing how many transactions were sent to that address?

Why would you use that though?
