To get transaction history, you need to hit a node that has that filter installed (otherwise you'll get back an empty array). Here's a working curl request (replace accountnamehere with a real account name):

curl --request POST \
 --url http://api.eosnewyork.io/v1/history/get_actions \
 --data '{"account_name":"accountnamehere","pos":0,"offset":200}'

Not sure how to get balance yet, but it should be from hitting the /v1/chain/get_currency_balance endpoint with an HTTP POST request: https://developers.eos.io/eosio-nodeos/reference#get_currency_balance

    To get balance: curl --request POST \ --url http://api.eosnewyork.io/v1/chain/get_currency_balance \ --data '{"code":"eosio.token","account":"ACCOUNTNAMEHERE","symbol":"EOS"}'

Query your account name by publick key

cleos -u https://mainnet.meet.one get accounts *publick_key*

Query your balance by account name

cleos -u https://mainnet.meet.one get currency balance eosio.token *account_name*

Query your account info(CPU/NET/RAM) by account name

cleos -u https://mainnet.meet.one get account *account_name*

Query your refunding amount

cleos -u https://mainnet.meet.one get table eosio *account_name* refunds

You can find an EOS account name via the EOS Public key associated with it using a Block Explorer like EOSTracker

If you prefer to do it on cleos, you can use this command. cleos get accounts *Public key*

It would be overkill to create your own node to sync with the chain just to check your balance but it is possible.


To get transaction history you need to query a full node with filter option on. Most top BPs have this option on. You can use our node for example: https://api.eosargentina.io:8888

To get transactions you need to type this command:

cleos -u https://api.eosargentina.io:8888 get actions YOURACCOUNT

To get balance you can do:

cleos -u https://api.eosargentina.io:8888 get currency balance eosio.token YOURACCOUNT eos
