In Geth, if I check my balance, it says one number. At etherchain.org it says another number which is higher and more accurate and includes my transaction history. I wanted to convert my balance to bitcoin so I signed up on kraken. It gave me an address to send it to in order to 'deposit' it for me presumably into my kraken account. It seems I then trade it for btc. It looks like, in order to send my balance to kraken, I have to use geth, but if geth has the wrong and lower balance, how do I access and send the rest to kraken?
I know my wallet number (the 0x*****) thing and I know the password for it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
One more quick note, the last few transactions I received happened while geth was not syncing properly. I had to update it for it to sync right.
