Wow pretty sure I just got jipped then.

My 1 BTC is completely missing from my address according to block explorer... for some reason it seems like my address changed since the last time I've used it, or Tradehill completely threw away my BTC

This whole thing seems compeltely unreliable.... jesus fucking christ. Why the hell is my address different now than it was before? I sent this data in a week ago and it still isn't here, now I have a different address and I'm still jipped of about $14 USD worth of bitcoin. Fuck this!

... aaaannd this is why things have to get simpler and simpler and more user friendly.
Not really, you just have to not be pants on head retarded.

In other words, 3/4's of the world's population isn't fit for using our currency?  Think of your grandma.  Wink

You don't have an address, you have several addresses. The client automatically generates new addresses to help you preserve your anonymity.

In the client go to "Address Book", "Receiving" and try to find there the address you used with Tradehill. Look at it with block explorer. If it's not there you need to contact Tradehill about this. Make sure you are using the correct wallet file.

If the money appears in blockexplorer and not in the client, and you have all blocks, run bitcoin with the -rescan parameter.


Pretty sure changing my default bitcoin data folder back to the default location completely wiped whatever wallet.dat file that the BTC was sent to, somehow. Despite both wallet.dat files in both data locations supposidly being exactly the same.

I have no transaction history in my bitcoin client, and the only address I have in the address book is the "new" one.

Hold on - to be clear, how many blocks do you have? If it's not ~133000 you're not caught up and won't see the transaction.

Korjax, you had better return to the exchange transaction records and get the address you entered there and then plug that into bloxexplorer.com. If that address does NOT show up then contact the exchange and ask them why they never sent funds to that address.

If that address DOES show up then you need to figure out what you did with it. When you changed wallets and stuff you shouldn't have deleted a wallet and the address should still be in one of them. But it is possible in confusion that something was lost perhaps.

When you check addresses in the wallet be sure to click the "receiving" tab because it contains different addresses than "sending". The way bitcoin works it creates 100 addresses for you upon first run and they are inside your wallet. Only ones you use (or when you click Add Address) get shown in the addresses list. This aspect is confusing because it seems to make no sense but it is useful for people wanting to make tracking identity difficult.

Hopefully you didn't enter a wrong address when you did the transaction. AFAIK that would put funds in someones else's hands or a void address which can't be claimed.

There's a checksum built into Bitcoin addresses.  You're very unlikely to typo an address and end up with another valid address.  And if the address you type isn't a valid address, you'll not be able to send funds to it.

Good to know. Makes sense but I didn't realize that.

How do I look that up on Tradehill? It looks like they only track "recent transactions"... I see no page about full transactions made.

On the top of the page, there is "Welcome" and your login. Clicking on it leads you to your profile which should have a complete list of the transactions. I'm not sure they display the address used for withdrawal though.

Then contact them, ask to which address it was sent. Look it up in blockexplorer. Find the wallet containing it.
