I'm using bitcoind- version & My Wallet Address is: muweVvHKnK1bE88pUsrpSAPuWry1V1AmHZ

But whenever checking balance with following command:

bitcoin-cli getreceivedbyaddress 'muweVvHKnK1bE88pUsrpSAPuWry1V1AmHZ'

It appears to be 0.00000000, while the wallet has 0.0007 BTC stored!

Bitcoin.conf indicates I'm connected to the testnet: testnet = 1

What is the problem?

  • Is muweVvHKnK1bE88pUsrpSAPuWry1V1AmHZ an address of the wallet you're querying? What does getbalance say? Sep 4, 2019 at 18:52
  • My wallet address = muweVvHKnK1bE88pUsrpSAPuWry1V1AmHZ bitcoin-cli getbalance = 0.00000000 There is a balance in the wallet but it does not appear. Sep 4, 2019 at 18:54
  • Then I think you're querying the wrong wallet. You can't ask for information about addresses that are not in that wallet itself. Sep 4, 2019 at 18:56
  • wallet true. registered in node. but no balance appears. Sep 4, 2019 at 18:58

    Ok, you're half a million blocks behind. Just wait until it fully synchronizes. Sep 4, 2019 at 19:11
