5 days ago some Pokerroom sent to my Bitcoin Core wallet a slight amount of bitcoin. I checked it on Blockchain, it's OK. But, unfortunately, still there is no bitcoins in my wallet. I've also sent email here - contact@bitcoincore.org with explanation of the problem.

Who's already gone through situation like this please give me advice on what to do.

Many thanks, Kirill

    It would be helpful if you could provide more information, such as: what is the receiving address you gave the Poker site? Do you have a tx id for the withdrawal? Is your bitcoin-core wallet fully synced to the network?

  • Until now my wallet isn`t fully synced with the network.

Your Bitcoin-core wallet will need to finish syncing with the network before it will display your balance.

  • How could I synce it more faster? Number of the not synced blocks - 91 451 (progress 57,%). I don`t have enough free space on my computer as well - 10 GB / 227 GB.

  • If you don't have enough free space for the full blockchain, you can instead run a 'pruned node', so that old and un-needed transactions are deleted from your hard drive after they are validated. Look up 'pruning' for more info. There isn't really any way to speed it up, except for using a faster computer, a high-speed internet connection, or an SSD instead of an HDD.

  • You could also try using a light-wallet that doesn't sync the entire chain instead, but now that you have sent funds to your bitcoin-core wallet, you would need to dump the private keys from it, and import them into the light-wallet, which is a little bit more of an advanced operation, but it is possible.
