WHERE DID MY IOTA GO? Using Wallet Version 2.5.0!

283 ratings | 22378 views
UPDATE: You need go to Edit Node Configuration and change "Min Weight Magnitude" to 14 The IOTA team JUST came out with a new wallet, version 2.5.0, in conjunction with other updates that they made to the main network. This is in response to the unsuccessful attack on the IOTA tangle that happened a couple weeks ago. When I first opened up this wallet, it showed 0 IOTAs and I freaked out for a bit because I thought the wallet was going to auto-generate addresses for me. Instead, I had to follow a really simple process to retrieve my IOTAs. Watch my video for a quick tutorial on how to do so!

I really need some help re Zero Balance I logged in to my IOTA wallet 2.5.6-IRI last week and had zero balance. Am sure I've heard this a zillion times by now. I followed all the advise I downloaded the latest version 2.5.7 and began to reattach to the Tangle and I generated up to 36 addresses although I only generated 9 in my original wallet. But still Zero Balance I then went to https://iotabalance.com/ and pasted my wallet addresses which I know I had balances and they showed ZERO. Below are my addresses I know I have a balance on. Since then I have used the Reclaim Tool but still Zero Balance, I really don’t know what to do. Balance 4794.7 Address GMUKYSL9SLV9PJDLRVDSCBDYPWXVS9WHXKBIVCPJPCHLYD9ZSQRCQBFQOHESWPJOURKWWVUFZLSGOFLMDWLICC9OGA Txid XTZPQJQFAUB9WGADYKAMCXLCKXBCBXAYAOPJGBFZWDRRXFEETLAZBO9P9XHLYMJOT9KMYXQOMCOEA9999

sent 800 Gi to Bitfinex last week and it has disappeared despite using a fresh address in Bitfinex. Beware.
R G (1 year ago)
I have the latest wallet as well. Is there a way I can retrieve transaction history in my IOTA wallet?
R G (1 year ago)
Transaction was pending for 3 days then my wallet showed an incorrect zero balance, reattached to tangle and the balance was accurate but no transaction history. I have a ticket with Bitfinex but I am sure they are swamped for some strange reason.

+Ryan Grant what does the transaction status say? Confirmed?
Camille Xin (1 year ago)
when I clicked "attach to tangle" , it says "invalid response". why?
Talor Lee-Stiles (1 year ago)
PLEASE HELP? This was a very helpful video. I get into 2.5.0, I tried 18 different nodes. However I was able to get into my wallet after downloading 2.5.6. I have generated a total of 30 addresses and still cannot find my Iota Balance, not even one. Is there anything else I can do? Is this lost forever? Any help is greatly appricated.
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
You are using the exact same seed as before? Do you need to try the "reclaim tool"? I suggest you join their slack and ask them for help.

Don't use online seed generators they will steal your IOTA
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
I used my mac terminal to generate :)
Richard Jenkins (1 year ago)
My iota still not showing up and im keep getting request error
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
you have the latest version? Also if the network is congested it may take a while. Try restarted it and then re-attaching addresses to the tangle. Can also try choosing a different node. All tactics to try to fix the problem :)
Magic11 (1 year ago)
So where do I generate the seed?
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
you have to do it separately. Can google iota seed generator and read some articles about it!

I am on 2.5.4, i only sent iota to my wallet twice. Then i did the attach to tangle process, made 19 transfers and 16 addresses, balance is still zero. Anything im doing wrong?
Malcolm X (1 year ago)
I just ordered a Keep Key but not to sure if IOTA's MIOTA can be held on it.. Would you show a step by step on how to make a cold storage (paper wallet) for IOTA's MIOTA.. so that this Cryptocurrency can be placed off the laptop/computer to be put up in safe keeping.. Or is there any form of cold storage wallets for IOTA's MIOTA.. 🤔 It would be greatly appreciated..
Malcolm X (1 year ago)
Bitcoin for Beginners but is there a way to make a iota miota paper wallet?

Ganjin88 (1 year ago)
Same situation as you. This questions iotas scalability in my opinion.

Can you make a video on sending iota from light wallet
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
What would you like to know? It should work straight up from the "Send" tab.
Ken Lord (1 year ago)
Bitfinex is banning US users. IOTA wallet 2.5.1 doesn't even allow you to generate a seed from any option. How am I suppose to move my iotas somewhere safe? Will bitfinex take them all in November when the ban commences? What are other US bitfinex users doing to prepare for the ban?
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
I moved mine out of it a few weeks back already
houze (1 year ago)
I keep getting "invalid transaction hash". I put "magnitude" to 14 and save, but no luck. I reinstalled version 2.5.0 and version 2.5.1 and still nothing. what do I do????? Thanks for your help
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
Hmm did you try switching to a different remote node? You can do it in settings I believe.
danh le (1 year ago)
how do you have a balance when you never sent any coins to your newly created address?
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
danh le Bc your new addresses are all related to your old addresses via one thing in common, your private seed. The mathematical relationship let's the network tell which balances belong to you.

When can we expect an iota wallet that an average person can use and not a developer coder smarty pants?
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
Lol you should bring it up with the team in their Slack channel. You aren't the only one to feel this. I've heard this gripe a lot by other ppl too!
Kenuik nono (1 year ago)
Created 7 addresses with 3 in pending forever. Still a big fucking Zero balance. I didn't even do anything in Android wallet, login as usual, all the balance gone Zero too.
Robbie Brown (1 year ago)
Me too, you have to find your address and see.if you have to reclaim it.
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
Weird, I started seeing part of my balance after address #4 and then the rest after address #7 I believe. I would say try a few more? Did you download the latest 2.5.1? They put out yet another release later tonight.
#TeamFlash (1 year ago)
soooo what happens when the user isnt doing this, but the iOT device in the future?? seems kinda broken to me
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
Yea, but remember that IOTA is still relatively young of a technology. It's still in beta technically, just super pumped up by us speculators. If they iron out all the problems, it will be a force to reckon with in the future.
David Moore (1 year ago)
If you are seeing "Invalid Transaction Hash", I believe that is a sign you must upgrade to the 2.5.0 version. Also, as mentioned in the video, initially you may not see all of your IOTA. This is because if you've received multiple transfers using different IOTA addresses, you must press the "Attach to Tangle" multiple times to account for all of the addresses(I think), and then you will see all of your IOTA.
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
Yep! Also they just released an even newer version, 2.5.1 so that might help with the transaction hash problem.

The new 2.5.1 release wlth ccurl fixed it.
Daniel Zugg (1 year ago)
I'm in the same boat. Not sure what to do
elevenforty (1 year ago)
Have tried that multiple times with different nodes.
Bitcoin for Beginners (1 year ago)
try changing Min Weight Magnitude to '14' and pressing save? And if that doesn't work, trying signing out and back in? Keep me updated on what happens!
