Check Mining Rewards on My Account

This section describes how to check mining rewards.

Since coinbase (or Etherbase) of the "geth" node is set to my account address, let's see how much Ether I got as mining rewards:

> eth.coinbase
"0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90"

> wallet = eth.accounts[0]
"0x05d4e1a499775ce9d681abd50bda655c7b5ccb90"

> wei = eth.getBalance(wallet)
55000000000000000000

> web3.fromWei(wei,"ether")
55

This is cool. The default mining reward is 5 Ethers per block. So I received 55 Ethers after mining 11 blocks in 2 minutes!
