I want to show block confirmations of the user's ether transaction to my account. How do I put watch on the incoming transactions?? I would need the transaction Id to know calculate block confirmations. But I can't view the incoming ether transaction for my account. Any way out?? Thanks.

If you're using web3j/web3js, you can do it programmatically. I use web3j and I have this in my code:

web3j.transactionObservable().subscribe( tx -> {

        if( credentials.getAddress().equals( tx.getTo() )) {

            Logger.info( "This is my money! -> addr: {}, amt: {}", 
                    credentials.getAddress(), tx.getValue() );
  • This ignores incoming transactions sent as part of a smart contract function invocation. Feb 10, 2018 at 2:14

Go to https://etherscan.io put in the address you want to monitor.

"in" (green) indicates deposits.

"out" (orange) indicates withdrawals.
