I had funds deposited in my bitcoin core account about a year and have still not seen them appear in my wallet. Is there a way I can make sure the transaction went through, and how I can have access to the funds? I have the receiving address where the funds were sent to. Thank you
If you haven't seen them appear you may be seeing one of two problems:
- Your Bitcoin Core application is not synchronizing with the network properly
- You deposited your Bitcoin to a wrong address
I would find out where the Bitcoin is on the blockchain to be sure; only if you remember the sender of the Bitcoin. You can read up on the technicality of Bitcoin here.
Go to https://blockchain.info and enter the receiving address into the search at the top right of the screen. This will show you the details about what transactions have occurred against the address.
This is what the search box looks like:
