Hello, everybody.

I just had a strange transaction not process, and I can't figure out what happened.  After looking through the sticky threads and searching for a resolution without finding one, I'm posting a new topic.

Here's what happened:

1) I finally retired my one hard-working GPU from bitcoin mining.  I mined up to the minimum withdrawal amount from my pool (50btc) and sent that amount to my localbitcoin wallet address.  Here's a picture of my localbitcoin wallet address when I'm logged in:



If you want to copy and paste: 1FmSrQp7Vr8UL3ohG7wHhKtq23XzDrcti1

2) I sent 0.01051083 BTC to that address.  (It took about 3 days to mine it.)

3) When the transaction didn't show up in my localbitcoin wallet, I searched for that address on blockchain.info.  Here's what I found:



My initial transaction is there with a bunch of confirmations, but then there's another strange transaction on top of it involving 3+ BTC.  (I never keep more than 1 BTC in my web-based wallet.)

What happened?

--------

I have two theories, both of which seem fairly implausible:

1) I've been tricked into sending BTC to an address that isn't actually my localbitcoin address.

2) localbitcoins.com uses some kind of intermediate address and eventually, my bitcoins will show up.

Any perspective is appreciated.  Thanks a lot.

ps - I did have a small amount of bitcoins in my localbitcoin wallet.  They are still there, undisturbed.

Advanced mode?
Look at the bottom of the page. There's a link to enable advanced mode.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

This is the transaction you were talking about. It takes 2.99 from the other address which belongs to someone else:

https://blockchain.info/tx/1d9c8899f08eb9f606e9d5d297780bc6eb63ff7bd5817c80bbe1caf477dfe5cd

So it looks like their wallet is shared across multiple users of their site.

Hmmm.  It's been twelve hours, and that little transaction hasn't shown up in my account.   I'm going to x-post in their new forums and see if I can get some help.

Localbitcoins.com is a web wallet, the outgoing transactions are not in any way connected to incoming.

Resolved.

From their customer support:

According to our transaction log you should have this amount credited on your wallet.

also,

for old bitcoin receiving addresses we do not generate entries in the transaction log on the wallet page.

This problem can be worked around by creating a new receiving address with "Request new address" button and using this address for the receving transactions.

I guess I didn't realize that my balance had changed.  I was just looking at the transaction log which apparently doesn't work with new addresses.
