I am so confused, I loaded up my ledger nano S with Bitcoin and several alt coins.  The chrome apps show the balance.

However, when I use a litecoin or blockchain block explorer, I see a zero balance for the receiving address.

I'm very sure my coins are on device.  I'm also sure I can send them off if I wanted to.

So why would a block explorer show that the coins were received to that address, but a zero balance?

What block explorer are you using? blockchain.info? That's the one I normally use but if you cant see it on there it might be worth getting in touch with customer support for the ledger.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it, as long as you have confirmed your funds are in the wallet and accessable, it does not matter what the explorer says.  None are perfect and as long as you have access to the funds, I am not sure why it would matter much beyond you just wanting to see the transaction.

No problem with that, I just sent one litecoin from the ledger to Coinbase with no problem.

ledger nano s is an HD wallet. This mean that everytime generates a new adress. Your account is not the adress displayed when u click "receive" (appears a new generated adress that belong to you ) but a lot of adresses bond to your mnemonic phrase (seed)

I prefer to live a day like a wolf than a hundred years as a lamb.
