I purchased 2 bitcoins with CoinBase online 3 years ago. I then sent them to an Armory wallet that I had on a server. Everything transferred successfully and I never thought twice about them disappearing. I have a paper back and an encrypted Armory backup of my wallet. I never made any further transactions.
I finally want to access my BTC in my Armory wallet. I started Armory and the program seemed to freeze many times without loading the block chain. I removed Armory and BitCoin-QT (now BitCoin Core). I installed the newest versions of both programs, downloaded the full block chain and restored my wallet using both the paper backup and the encrypted backup.
The balance of the wallet seems to be 0BTC no matter what backup I use. What happened to my 2BTC and how do I go about getting them back. I have full backup images of the server (c drive and d drive) before removing and reinstalling the software, if that helps.
I just can't seem to figure out where the heck my 2BTC went! Please help!
Here are all the details I could find.
My wallet after using my paper restore has the following two addresses.
Transaction #1 (small amount for testing) Send to address:1CqmjgYj46vRqBxFvbt5WsqMudRShhGKmD Transaction #: a821fac9e6216975fa8216045a3cd9ae500a82aa251988ca1f301c7287b74ab4 Transaction #2 (sent minutes after transaction 1) Send to address: 16D1XkRHunUgSfuPDQZSPG42cAicTbSmzu Transaction #: 5187441186fa834d8a27fb9302bbcb6d3993ff836e1918f8174d5b3266ffb21d Transaction #3 (sent a month later) Send to address: 1qjThyMzMrpy3m1esvXF32o3MHVixnxnA Transaction #: 707e5f96d88134da5f5936b541df19faa9d7e5819d478bd5d533cbb2e9be62c9
