My address is 0x9ac0e6b745bbd98eec2d900d5ee8144157d7fc1e and I had ether in it but it suddenly went down to 0 I have also never been able to find my address on ether chain.

  • Your address seems to exist live.ether.camp/account/… There is no ETH on it though, what makes you think you had ETH on it ?

  • I ran web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase),"ether") and it came up with 30

  • and I suppose eth.coinbase is 0x9ac0e6b745bbd98eec2d900d5ee8144157d7fc1e ? wouldn't it be possible you have another account you asked for the balance ? you can use the snippet here : ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/2531/… to get all account balances quite easily

    How would you have 30 in the 1st place? Someone sent you some? Did you mine some?

    Replying to euri10's first comment that the account seems to exist in live.ether.camp/account/… , I checked a randomly made up account live.ether.camp/account/… and the web site still says that the account exists. live.ether.camp/account is not a reliable indicator that the account exists. Entering the same account into etherchain.org seems to be a better indicator of whether the account has been used and both the original poster's account and my made up account shows up as not found!

That account never had or ever has had ANY balance on it. Additionally, that account never had or ever has had ANY balance on it on the testnet.

My guess would be that your coinbase is referencing a different account.




Moulie415, how long did it take your miner to find the 6 blocks? From https://etherscan.io/ether-mining-calculator, you should currently be only finding a block every 11.2 days. The testnet and dev blockchain will mine at a much faster rate.

  • So will I only be able to see ether in my balance once i have mined a block?

  • No, if there is any ether in the account you will be able to see it without mining anything. What everyone is trying to ascertain is why it is you think that there should be a balance on your account? Where did you get that ETH from?
