So I bought my first bitcoin yesterday and I generated my first address which is the one I used to receive the bitcoins. Now since I am still trying to sync, I have no idea if I received these coins as I cannot access the address using the directory. I checked blockchain and it says the address received the money but I can only view it as a spectator as Bitcoin Core is giving me the wrong private key. When i bounce between commands it always comes back to this random address that it has now added to my list of receiving address'. I find this very odd as the address that received the money is part of the address' connected to my wallet, but its as if the first address was overridden or something. Do you guys think there is any hope? Any insight is much appreciated thanks
You can install a lightweight wallet to your phone, this will work much faster than since it doesn't need to download the full blockchain and verify it. Then you can import the private key and you will be able to use your bitcoins.
Not all of them support all operating systems but together they cover Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.
