A bit ago I bought ETH through Coinbase and now I can't find it. I have been trying to hunt it down all day with my luck. My overall knowledge of crypto is limited so I may be doing it wrong.
When I go to the transaction page on Coinbase I am taken to Etherscan and it shows the address I sent it to, within minutes of buying it. I do not remember transferring it that day, but I am sure I could have.
What I do remember is buying a Ledger Nano S to keep it on, with some other coin. I did not receive the Ledger for months after the purchase. When I boot up the Ledger it shows an account for all my various coins. Each account is there, including ETH. But the ETH is the only one with a 0 balance. I transferred less than 1 full coin but there is no part of a coin showing either.
I have been searching all of my paperwork and apps to see where I would have sent it that day. All I have on my PC that could be relevant is a file called wallet which contains an alphanumeric string with over 600 characters.
Is there any way to track this down? Anything I should be looking for?
