The balance is not stored on the seed but on the addresses created from your seed.
So if you want to see your balance, you just need to know the addresses.
You can either look your balance up in your own full node or, if you don't have one you can use an online Tangle explorer like thetangle.org or iotasear.ch.
IOTA uses the UTXO model to represent transactions. It means that the balance of a given address is defined as:
balance of address ADR = (sum of all "inputs" to ADR) - (sum of all "outputs" tx from ADR)
In practice, IOTA network make snapshots. After a snapshot: transaction history is lost (or at least the fullnode don't need to keep it in it's ...
This is basic practice on Bitfinex. They collect all the iota centralized and keep track of your iota in a Database. This process may take some time. So be patient.
This is not Bitfinex support and if you have questions on Bitfinex use their support please.
I am not sure that I fully understand your question. What do you mean by
I am in the snapshot
I am not in the snapshot
IOTA doesn‘t have such thing. You can miss out snapshots and that won‘t affect your balance. After a snapshot, all you have to do is keep generating addresses in your wallet until your balance is fully restored. Your addresses ...
The missing balance should be due to your unconfirmed addresses not getting synchronized by the nodes, thus disappearing from the Tangle. Attach those addresses to the Tangle again, and your missing balance shall come back.
No, all positive balances will keep their value after an arbitrary number of snapshots.
You have 1 Terraiota
Your wallet shows that you have 0 Iota *
You login to your wallet and generate X addresses where X is the number of addresses you generated before the first Snapshot
Now you can see your balance again and spend your ...
You have a balance not in an account, but on an address. Due to the fact that IOTA uses one-time signatures, you are advised to create transactions that empty an address fully.
So, if you have 10 Mi on address X, you(r wallet) will actually create a transaction that takes 10 Mi from address X, sends 1 Mi to address Y and sends the remaining 9 Mi to a new ...
If you send funds to the wrong address and the transaction is confirmed: there is no way to get your funds back.
If the transaction is not confirmed yet, you can try to double spend and hope that the second transaction will be confirmed before the wrong one. (it will expose your key to an attacker... But anyway your funds will be lost if you do nothing)
You would likely store
the index of the first unspent address
The way IOTA address generation works makes some things very easy:
Let's say, your seed is AAAAAA...
AAAAAA... + 0 = AAAAAA... → to generate your first address
AAAAAA... + 1 = BAAAAA... → to generate your second address
AAAAAA... + 2 = CAAAAA... → to generate your third address
If your IOTA are spread across multiple addresses, in order to see your full balance you must have access to your seed, so it can retrieve every single address.
If you have a list of addresses your IOTA are stored in, you can input them into a site like the following: https://iotasear.ch/
Keep in mind that if your IOTA are stored across multiple addresses,...
Zass provided an advanced answer to this problem, but here is the step-by-step instruction to solve your problem
In your wallet, go to the Receive section and click on Generate new Address (or was it Attach to tangle?) multiple times, until you see your balance back. Click on it, wait for it to finish and then click again. This process can take up to 2 ...
There are two reasons why there might be pending transactions shown in the wallet
You reattached a transaction and the reattachment confirmed, making the original transaction pending forever (this does not apply to promotions. Promoted transactions will also confirm the original transaction)
You sent some IOTA (or somebody sent it to you) but the ...
Yeah you can always check the current balance of an address through an explorer.
In a normal usage scenario, the last deterministically generated address will contain the whole balance belonging to a given seed (the wallet will send the remaining balance of an address to the next address on every tx, so you don't reuse addresses).
You can however have ...
Following from the light wallet:
and the cli-wallet (line 41):
Current Balance of an Address
1) Get all the transaction that is addressed to Address A (confirmed) and add them up.
2) For example Address A (Bob's wallet) has two deposit 10 iota and 20 iota. Send 5 iota to address B (Alice wallet).
The Transaction Bundle should look like this
Withdraw 10 Iota from Address A, Withdraw 20 Iota from Address A
Unconfirmed transactions are not guaranteed to be synchronized across all nodes (in fact, some nodes intentionally drop them sometimes).
In case your current balance was last altered (by value transactions) before the last snapshot, and all you did after that snapshot was to attach (unconfirmed) addresses, it could have happened that these addresses ...
The money is in your addresses, not in the seed. So if your wallet does not see the funds, it cannot send them.
However, it is possible (with IOTA API) to scan addresses without attaching them until you reach a certain amount and then send them to another address. The current GUI wallet does not support this, though (but perhaps the new UCL wallet will? At ...
