Watch-only transactions are transactions that are from or to addresses Bitcoin Core knows, but doesn't know their private key.

It will happen if you import an address without its private key. You won't be able to spend coins of those transactions. Did you import addresses without their private key?

I know what watch-only address are, but I don't understand why I see these transactions.
I never imported address. The only thing I've done yesterday was to try use BarterDex.

Somehow an address got imported (as watch-only).
When you tried out an exchange yesterday, may it be possible that you accidentally (after sending funds) imported the deposit address (or any other one) as a watch-only?.

Is your available balance (non-watch-only) correct?

You see the transactions because someone with the private key made transactions with them.
If the watched address is yours and you never made those transactions then your private key has been compromised.

You said you used Barterdex, which requires you to download an app on your system.
Your private key MAY have leaked when you did that
(I'm not familiar at all with Barterdex or the Komodo platform so I can't say for sure that it's the cause)

As far as i am concerned it is not possible to remove a watch-only address from your wallet.
But you may ask achow101. He was looking for a solution for this too, once.
He might have found one. But im not sure if there is one (without damaging your wallet file).

Do you have a backup of your wallet from a few days (or weeks) ago?

If so, then you could try restoring the backup to eliminate the extra address.

If not, then you are taking a huge risk. You should NEVER receive ANY bitcoins to a wallet that you have not yet backed up.
