Process MetaMask Transsfer Transaction
This section describes how to process and view the transfer transaction submitted by MetaMask wallet.
With the transfer transaction submitted correctly from the MetaMask wallet, I can turn on the miner to process it.
1. On "geth" console, start the miner and wait for the CPU to go crazy:
> miner.start(4) > eth.getTransaction(txid).hash "0x029f863ecf7c888825e0a26d215d0e60467d9fe95af1f3d8718993e6cd8d0284" > eth.getTransaction(txid).blockNumber null ... > eth.getTransaction(txid).blockNumber 49 > miner.stop() true
Ok. Transaction is processed now. I stopped the miner to save some electricity power.
2. On the MetaMask wallet, the balance is updated to 97.999979 ETH now. So I got charged with a 0.000021 ETH transaction fee.
3. Check the balance on my second "geth" account:
> receiver = eth.accounts "0x485410d2e7b8bfb6f78e5e5acf7d1057cb853fce" > eth.getBalance(receiver) 2000000000000000000 > web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(receiver),"ether") 2
I did receive 2 ETH.
4. Check the balance on my coinbase account:
> eth.coinbase "0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90" > web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase),"ether") 10000155.000021
The miner did receive the transaction fee (0.000021 ETH) as part of the mining reward!
