how to list transactions which are being sent to the burnaddress

+2 votes
I would need to destroy some native assets and I found out that sending it to the burnaddress would make it unredeemable. However I've subscribed to the asset and my listassettransactions doesn't show my transaction to the burnaddressses. Is there anyway I can track the transactions of a burnaddress and any option to track balances of addresses which are available in the node but they are addresses used in other nodes.

I'm surprised that listassettransactions is not showing transactions send to the burn address – is it possible you set the rescan parameter to false when issuing the subscribe command?

In any event, you can use importaddress to start tracking the balance of any address not belonging to the node, including the burn address.

oops. My bad. My transaction wasn't confirmed and hence it was not reflected. Thanks for the info.
