following setup for bitcoin params.dat but can't send btc between wallets

+1 vote
I followed the setup process, manually added params.dat to the second server, and tried sendtoaddress from server 1 to server 2. The transaction works, but the quantity never shows up in getaddressbalances.

It works fine for multichain blockchains, but the bitcoin one doesn't. Is it possible to get a more comprehensive tutorial on how to set this up on digital ocean?

Many thanks

The getaddressbalances API only shows balances for assets issued on a blockchain, not for its native currency, so it's not a relevant API for bitcoin protocol blockchains. It sounds like you should use Bitcoin Core APIs like getbalance for your purposes. Unless it's important for you to track the balance by different addresses?
