My Litecoin wallet version v0.8.6.2-beta is showing a balance of 26.579 ltc When I query http://block-explorer.com/address/LejrG23b2HcjqPRbZU8UWFxZhdJTUc75pS it is showing 0 balance.

I just sent 2 ltc to another address from my wallet successfully on 19 Feb 2014. This tx did not show up in the block-explorer.com (currently 20 confirmations), yet it did show the new balance correctly.

http://ltc.blockr.io/api/v1/address/balance/LejrG23b2HcjqPRbZU8UWFxZhdJTUc75pS is also showing a 0 balance.

Thoughts?

    My guess is that's not the only address managed by your wallet. – Greg Hewgill Feb 19 '14 at 17:26
  • I thought the same at first. I did check; and, there is just one wallet. The same thing is happening in my PeerCoin wallet. – EL_Expressed Feb 19 '14 at 17:51
  • Check all the addresses in your wallet. There could be more than one addresses in a single wallet. – ghalways Feb 19 '14 at 19:12
  • I'm using Ubuntu. Would you know how I can check for more than one wallet? – EL_Expressed Feb 19 '14 at 20:05

    A wallet manages one or more addresses. So checking one single address on block-explorer.com won't give you the whole picture of what's actually in your wallet. The balance of the wallet as a whole is the sum of the balances of all the individual addresses. – Greg Hewgill Feb 19 '14 at 20:40

Not all of the addresses in your wallet are displayed in the QT client. There are certain addresses called change addresses which your client creates automatically when you send coins and have some left over. Those are still part of your wallet, but are not displayed.
