Does blockexplorer.com have a bug or some other reason?

Their definitions of 'total received' differ in that blockchain.info does not count change outputs as an amount 'received', whereas most other explorers do (since there is no way in general to determine if an output is really change or not, unless change is sent back to the sending address, which is the case for blockchain.info wallets).

See this related post on reddit.

  • Thanks for the explanation, total received with change does not have much meaning with regards to balance, its like counting the same value twice.
