Process MetaMask Transfer 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

> eth.getTransaction(txid).blockNumber

> eth.getTransaction(txid).blockNumber

> miner.stop()

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[1]

> eth.getBalance(receiver)

> web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(receiver),"ether")

I did receive 2 ETH.

4. Check the balance on my coinbase account:

> eth.coinbase

> web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase),"ether")

The miner did receive the transaction fee (0.000021 ETH) as part of the mining reward!
