I am trying to get the recent IN transaction of the account while i try


This returns account transactions count.

I refer web3 documentation and refer net i found the script getTransactionsByAccount Common useful JavaScript snippets for geth

Is any another way to find IN transaction of the account using web3.js . Lastest last IN transaction is enough .

1 Answer 1


I think it would be easier and faster to use Amberdata.io. If you get a free api key then you can do the following to get the latest IN transaction.

It would look something like this:

curl \
  -X GET \
  -H "x-api-key: UAK000000000000000000000000demo0001" \

The transactions are returned ordered by timestep. The to filters by a to address. In this case we want all transactions where the to address is the address we are querying and we want the first one so I put size=1. Although if you remove that you'll get every IN transaction.

Hope that helps! 😊
