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:

C:\>\local\bitcoin-0.15.1\bin\bitcoin-qt -testnet

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.
