Digital mining is a personal hobby and a solo activity. Never look for associates. Period!
Plus, chiaexplorer has no ties with Chia (the company, majority of crypto internet users assume it’s coming directly from the same company, helas). It does not know all the different wallet address activities linked to the same key.
The only reliable balance checker is the wallet on the Chia app. There, you can see “all” incoming and out-going movements. I advice to ignore the balance on chiaexplorer.
You say the GUI is synced. Are you sure? There are two different syncs to look at. The blockchain sync and the wallet sync. In this case, you should make sure the wallet is synced. Then if it is, look at the transactions at the bottom of the page. That will show you all incoming and outgoing transactions (hopefully no outgoing).
The transactions I see on the Gui match with the transactions I see in the chia explorer for the address that my partner had - this address btw is nowhere to be seen in the GUI.
However, the address in chia explorer has more rewards than we can see in the Gui.
To my mind, there is zero chance that my partner got a random address from somewhere, and this address matches the initial 3 transactions with the transactions in the Gui. So I am pretty sure this address belongs to use, but don’t know whether we do in fact got the rewards and if yes, how to get them back to our wallet.
You are probably looking at a Receive Address. A wallet can have many, many Receive Addresses. The GUI will only show you the current one. But all receive addresses that are created are good. It just gives you the opportunity to create new ones for whatever reason (normally security).
My previous response was to just explain why you don’t see that address in the GUI. I don’t know why the GUI does not show all the XCH that the wallet has received.
You may want to try to setup a new instance of the GUI and sync it again. Maybe the db is messed up. Just a thought. You could set it up in a VM. If it turns out to look the same, just turn it off and delete it. If it comes up with the right balance, then you know something is wrong with the other GUI.
All of the XCH shown on that address have been spent. See the last column. That is why the remaining balance is zero. If they were still in the wallet, it would say “Unspent”. I have a feeling that address is the address that sent you the XCH. That is why the transaction times match for the ones you actually see in the GUI.
Thanks WolfGT, however it’s strange that we have the address from where the chia came. How can we have gotten in?
Also, if that’s where the rewards come from, we should be able to see more transactions, not just those that pertain to us. It’s also strange that we can trace the initial rewards to the other wallet, but after we requested the miscellaneous 0.0001 reward, then the rewards stopped coming to “our” address.
It’s interesting to note that both me and the other person had requested the miscellaneous reward - which can only be awarded once per wallet - could this have somehow messed the address?
Here’s what happened in reverse chronology:
Spent from the mysterious address, cannot trace to our other address:
