I just started to get my fingertips wet with Ethereum and Dapps. After receiving some ether on Ropsten to test with:

https://ropsten.etherscan.io/address/0x05c86fc0ec0b80715f1cbc2fa96e86ba18e2eb90

I can't verify the amount on an attached console (to my syncing geth instance):

eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase) Result: 0

Is this an issue of the node not being synced completely yet?

Cheers, Mario

  • Can you please confirm that 0x5c86... is your coinbase account? If not can you check it’s balance? – Pratik Gaikwad Feb 15 '18 at 11:37
  • > eth.coinbase "0x05c86fc0ec0b80715f1cbc2fa96e86ba18e2eb90", I already checked that they map correctly. – hi im vinzent Feb 15 '18 at 11:38

Yes, because geth node didn't get have an updated ledger. Please wait for a while for sync. After sync your block your geth node will show your current balance.

  • I thought so, I just wanted to ensure that's the case. The whole technology for me is kinda complex, but it gets better hour by hour and day by day. Thanks for helping out! – hi im vinzent Feb 15 '18 at 11:46
