Hi,

I think I lost my coins as they have not shown up in my transaction history neither is the receiving address. The coins were bought in April 2015 and on the same night I did an update on electrum, this could have been stupidly done during the transaction made on 2015-04-25 either using Versions

Electrum 2.0.4  133  Friday, April 17, 2015  approved
Electrum 1.9.8  167  Thursday, February 5, 2015  approved

I seen the amount flicker in the corner of the screen then disappear :/ I have my password and seed phrase. I have also tried numerous things like exporting the private keys and sweeping the wallet but no joy but then again I'm not sure I'm doing it properly

Has anybody out there had any similar issues?  Or could steer me in the right direction to at least so I know if these coins can still be retrieved or are they lost forever?


The coins are in the block chain and my broker says they are still under my control if I can find a way of accessing them, so he pointed me here.

To make matters worse my old laptop has been restored 

If anybody can guide me through what went wrong, I'll gladly make a btc donation !

K.

The same address received payments two times again this year (2017). Did you make those two payments, even though you lost access to the address 2 years ago?

Your password only works on your wallet, your seed phrase can be used to restore the wallet without password.

What happened exactly? Did you reinstall Electrum, restore your old seed, and still not see your balance?
