An output is the spending part of a transaction, that establishes ownership of the funds. UTXO is an unspent transaction output. UTXO to your address are counted toward your balance. When you want to send Bitcoin, a UTXO is needed as an input to the transaction.

It is likely that if your node is syncing from scratch it doesnt know about the UTXO related to your address, yet. If it hasn't processed the block that contains the UTXO, it might not know about it, so it doesn't know you have a balance. If you use the Bitcoin core wallet, there is a wallet database that stores that data.

  • Yes i use bitcoin core wallet so what will i do not curse i trued to copy the address and paste it in blockchain to see and it says only 1 transaction and the balance is there , so what should i do now wait till it liaf the block or what curse i need my coin and and its still syn

  • Yeah it sounds like you might need to wait for it to finish syncing.

  • Yes, you can also verify with a block explorer before it's done syncing.
