1 Answer 1


1) Get the latest wallet: https://github.com/iotaledger/wallet/releases

2) Try using different Nodes - Tools -> Edit Node Configuration Min Weight Magnitude should always be 14 or above. Curl Implementation can be tried both, Webgl 2 and CCurl

3) Generate a few address and re-attach them to tangle until your full balance shows up

  • how many times did you re-attach to the tangle? Dec 6, 2017 at 22:04
  • 1
    Roughly 5 times to get the entire balance

  • that's better than me...i've reattached over 20 times and still 0 balance. Dec 8, 2017 at 20:01
  • I was worried and kept putting it off because of the general sentiment regarding the difficulty level. I reattached to the tangle twice and my entire balance showed. The process was actually much easier than I thought (it turns out I was using an outdated version of the wallet).
