All accounts on my geth return 0 balance. The blockchain is fully synced. Latest messages show that it syncing seconds not days. When calling eth.syncing it returns false for over 2 days now. So it's done syncing 100%. enter image description here

enter image description here

geth --datadir block --syncmode "fast" --ropsten --rpcapi eth,personal,web3,debug,txpool,net,admin,debug --rpc --gcmode full --rpcport=8547 --cache=4096

command I use to run geth.

and this is the balance that im trying to check: https://ropsten.etherscan.io/address/0x63b095C8fFE3feb0Db3b8Af5704145367Bc65f43

Any ideas? I'm going crazy over this. Do i need to try out other versions of geth?

  • what is the hash of the latest block? does it match the etherscan?

  • eth.blockNumber = 10641070 vs etherscan = 10673064. so it does look like it's behind, but it's not syncing further. web3.eth.syncing = false Jul 20, 2021 at 10:26
  • tx hash amount difficulty etc also differs from etherscan on same block number. so it looks like the network is totally different. Isn't --ropsten enough to be on the same network? Jul 20, 2021 at 10:29
  • No, I didn't say "block number" , I said the HASH of the block. Block number doesn't mean anything, it is just a serie. Hash is all that matters

  • The hash of transaction and the hash of the block are different things
