I have locally running bcoin node in testnet and acquired test bitcoins through faucet. Now, when calling balance check via bcoin cli wallet balance (when synchronization completed) I always receiving following result:

  "wid": 1,
  "id": "primary",
  "account": -1,
  "unconfirmed": 550722654,
  "confirmed": 550722654

I see that wallet contains amount but a bit confused that unconfirmed field contains the same value as confirmed one. Is it correct?

This probably helps you:


What we really needed was a "real-time" balance, and "confirmed" balance. So the simplest solution was: confirmed = what is on the blockchain unconfimed = what is on blockchain + mempool Essentially unconfirmed is your real-time balance. confirmed is your blockchain-secured balance.
