Help Importing account into GETH using UTC Keystore File

by UnruffledST   Last Updated January 14, 2018 00:28 AM

After having installed GETH using Homebrew on my Mac I manage to create a account, shortly after I copy my UTC file into the Keystore folder

I ran eth.accounts and it showed my new account still when I run

How do I successfully check my balance? is my account already linked now into GETH?

Yes, there should be nothing more you need to do. You can check your balance via the console: web3.eth.getBalance('0x123abc'), but you'll need geth to be up-to-date (sync'd with the blockchain) before that will give you an accurate result.

If you just want to check the balance, is an easier way.
