Is there any way to get history balance of an address. Balance is unspent transaction outputs (UTXOs). I am using BCOIN node. Bcoin has given a API for /coin/address/:address but it is giving current balance as a result instead of history.

Looking at the docs, you're using the HTTP api incorrectly.

Try this in your terminal. Make sure to define or change the $url variable.


curl $url/coin/address \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -X POST \
  --data '{ "addresses":[ "'$address0'", "'$address1'" ]}'
  • As per my understanding, it's the api to get UTXOs for multiple addresses. I want to get it for one address only. Please check this : address='R9M3aUWCcKoiqDPusJvqNkAbjffLgCqYip'; curl $url/coin/address/$address Commented Sep 20, 2018 at 14:32
  • What happens when you perform the req with only that address?

  • Also, I want to get the history of UTXOs of this address Commented Sep 20, 2018 at 14:33
  • It gives the current balance details of the address Commented Sep 20, 2018 at 14:35
  • I see the API you used now. What's your node's sync status?
