Hi,

i sent a week ago some money from a Site to my BTC Wallet and in the blockchain stands behind my BTC Adress "Unspent". I waited and had much patient, but i dont understand why it doesnt changed after such a long time. Could someone help me out or explain it to me? Thanks.

Unspent just means that the receiving address has not used those coins yet.

It is a good thing. It means that you can spend them in the future.

Thanks for your answer. I dont understand what you mean by "has not used those coins yet". They didnt show up in the receviving address. How will i be able to spend them if they dont show up?

You simply won't. However the coins in your adress 3CzArgbxZYDwFhvMSgFhTNNkeTTno6jZtv have succesfully confirmed, and you should be able to SPENT them, which is why it says that they're unspent.

Bitcoin works by unspent outputs. You can only send money if you have unspent outputs. You get these when other people send you money, and then sum of them is your Bitcoin balance.

That has to be an issue with your wallet, it has nothing to do with the unspent / spent, as the coins are showed as received on blockchain.info

What wallet are you using if i may ask?

https://www.walletexplorer.com/wallet/c5765a040f2c49d9?from_address=3CzArgbxZYDwFhvMSgFhTNNkeTTno6jZtv gives nothing..

Blockchain.info shows that you coins are on your Address just like you wanted.

The coins are there. Maybe your wallet software is not connecting to the net? Could be your firewall blocking your wallet software.

What wallet are you using.
(in the newest version of electrum many people have had the same problem, but there was an easy fix.)
