This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


easiest way would be to search the adress on etherscan: https://etherscan.io/address/"address_you_want"

  • Yes, sure but in this way i don't know for example if I'm receiving a transaction. For example if I have a wallet, and somebody is sending me a certain amount of ether, could I detect this? or I have to poll getBalance every x seconds? – Andrea Scafuto Feb 1 '18 at 15:40
