After how many confirmations does the bitcoin wallet subtracts/updates the account balance in respect of respective wallet address.


Bitcoin Core does not have a concept of address balances.

It has a concept of a wallet balance. The wallet balance is the sum of the values of all the transaction outputs that are:

  • Not serving as input to any (confirmed or unconfirmed) transactions that are not abandoned.
  • Either:
    • Confirmed (at least one confirmation)
    • Unconfirmed, but produced by a transaction that we signed ourselves ("change").
