Monero wallet gui not showing balance
The first thing I did was panic. Then I decided to check the history. The history is intact and does not show any withdrawals today nor should it. I stopped the daemon it was fully synced , closed the wallet and re-opened it.
No difference, still a zero balance. Can anyone tell me what likely happened and the best way to fix it hopefully short of recreating it from seed?
I have the same issue.. I think my wallet is wrong I have things like received 2, Processed block: In the end I had to restore the wallet from the seed phrases.
To save a lot of time, make sure you save the lmdb file that contains the Monero blockchain. There are instructions on how to do this in another post on this forum. Do yourselfa big favor and read it before you restore. The higher the number, the larger the transaction, and higher fees are needed. Since Monero is anonymous, you won't see the origin address the funds you receive came from. If you want to know, for instance to credit a particular customer, you'll have to tell the sender to use a payment ID, which is an arbitrary optional tag which gets attached to a transaction.
To make life easier, you can generate an address that already includes a random payment ID:. This will generate a random payment ID, and give you the address that includes your own account and that payment ID.
If you want to select a particular payment ID, you can do that too:. Payments made to an integrated address generated from your account will go to your account, with that payment id attached, so you can tell payments apart. If you pay a merchant, and the merchant claims to not have received the funds, you may need to prove to a third party you did send the funds - or even to the merchant, if it is a honest mistake.
Monero is private, so you can't just point to your transaction in the blockchain, as you can't tell who sent it, and who received it. However, by supplying the per-transaction private key to a party, that party can tell whether that transaction sent monero to that particular address. Note that storing these per-transaction keys is disabled by default, and you will have to enable it before sending, if you think you may need it:. Pass in the transaction ID you want the key for.
Remember that a payment might have been split in more than one transaction, so you may need several keys. You can then send that key, or these keys, to whoever you want to provide proof of your transaction, along with the transaction id and the address you sent to. Note that this third party, if knowing your own address, will be able to see how much change was returned to you as well.
If you are the third party that is, someone wants to prove to you that they sent monero to an address , then you can check this way:.
You can give an optional height to list only recent transactions, and request only incoming or outgoing transactions. This will start mining on the daemon usin two threads. Note that this is solo mining, and may take a while before you find a block. Team Hangouts Sponsorships Merchants.
