I've a Bitcoin address on which I made a couple of transactions. From what I understand of the blockchain, the ledger is public and anyone can list the transactions linked to a particular address.

If so, why do I see zero transaction when keying my address 39QUZnHVbtXGreq3zndkPtrg1TSho2Mbht on https://www.blockchain.com ?

Same for https://blockexplorer.com.

  • Are you sure the transactions were confirmed? If they don't get mined, they won't be included in a block. Also, how do you know this address has been used to make transactions?

  • I've made a transfer two days ago from an address stored on my computer with Electrum to this Coinbase address. Both Electrum and Coinbase show the transfer as confirmed and balances are updated.

  • it would make sense if this was the address you think you sent the coinbase funds from, because there is no guarantee which internal address coinbase decides to send coins from.

  • Are you sure that you sent BTC, and not some altcoin?

My assumption would be that this is due to the way coinbase handles deposits. You can tell more of the story by grabbing the transaction details from their website.

Click on the transaction in the Accounts section and look for the "View transaction" link and it will take you to it.
