Bitcoin-Qt New Incoming Transaction Alert
This section describes how to view test transaction on live.blockcypher.com.
If you have your Bitcoin-Qt constantly running with the blockchain up to date, you will see an alert message box whenever someone sends you Bitcoin.
1. Run Bitcoin-Qt UI running to keep the blockchain up to date:
2. Go to https://testnet.coinfaucet.eu/en/.
3. Enter the receiving address of my test wallet and click "Get bitcoins!".
4. Within few seconds, I saw an alert message box showing up:
Bitcoin - Incoming transaction Date 2/17/2018 Amount: +x.xxxxxx BTC-Market-Price Type: Received with Label: Used on coinfaucet.eu
6. Back on the Bitcoin-Qt UI Overview tab. I saw the new Bitcoin fund displayed as in "Pending".
Of course, it will be changed to "Available" once the transaction is mined into a confirmed block.
