Documentation for getBalance doesn't seem very clear to me. I would like to know the balance but want to know how many confirmations does the balance returned have.
I was assuming that passing the "pending" parameter would include the balance from all transactions (even the ones with no confirmations or very few), but if this is true, how to do the opposite? I want to know the balance with a high number of confirmations, and the alternative params to pass (instead of "pending") are "latest" and "earliest", whose documented meaning doesn't seem clear to me:
"earliest" - for the earliest/genesis block "latest" - for the latest mined block "pending" - for the pending state/transactions
Any ideas? Thanks!
