If you want to check the balance of an account within a contract then use <address>.balance.

  • when I use this with my default account eth.accounts[0] it gives me a very high value and does not match the return value of eth.getBalance(). I think it is because of the datatype. How can I solve this? – anonymous Jun 9 '17 at 8:00
