Lost my Siacoins!

    @BlackAdder
    You do not need to worry as long as you are using the same seed you use to generate the wallet address. All the address generated are linked to your seed forever.

    Please explain this. I have the same issue, recovered from seed and none of the receiver addresses are recovered, the balance in the recovered wallet does not increase.



  • Does anyone have any info on how to recover the receiver addresses in a recovered wallet?

    The wallet was recovered using the seed to new v1.3.2 wallet. All coins were recovered to the new wallet. None of the original receiver addresses were recovered and do not appear if the "wallet addresses" list. The new balance does not increase when coins sent to original receiver addresses.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think it is normal for your address to not appear when you run wallet addresses in the terminal of Sia-UI after you recover your wallet but you will still receive the coins from the old address. What is your blockheight? Make sure you are not stuck on block 139,885. You may try these methods to recover your lost transaction.

    Not stuck, everything is in sync. I was able to recover my old wallet from the failed drive and load it. The old wallet shows the sweep and all the coins moved to the new wallet, but also shows all the new transactions that have happened since the sweep. These new transactions are not list and the additional coins not reflected in the new wallet balance.

    Hmm if I understand correctly, you now have

    • Seed A, old seed in a failed drive
    • Seed B, newly generated seed

    So, you swept seed A to seed B, therefore the balance of seed A is transferred to address generated by seed B.
    If you continue to use an address generated by seed A, it will only appear in seed A because wallet addresses are not transferred when you sweep a wallet, only the balance in it is transferred.
    Therefore, if you only want to receive coin for seed B, you should stop using the wallet address generated by seed A and use a new address generated by seed B. Then, transfer everything from seed A to seed B by sweeping seed A to seed B.

    OK, so it is true then that the seed recovery does not recover the old receiver addresses, leaving these address unusable in the new wallet.
    That said there is no usefulness to having a seed recovery process. The only way to recover a wallet is to have a copy of the wallet files to recover from. The seed recovery process is an incomplete one and should not be used as a recovery method.

    This is like having backup software to recover your files, but it wont recover you folders. All your file will be restored into the root of you system dive.

    I will have to rework my wallets to get them back in a usable state. Thank you for your help.

    Well, you should recover your wallet by initializing a seed if you want to use your old seed (seed A) with it's generated address. wallet init-seed should be the command to initialize existing seed without sweeping your funds to a new wallet. If you launch Sia-UI for the first time on a computer (or delete wallet.db from the Sia Data Folder), you should get the option to Load a wallet from seed to initialize an existing seed with your old address without sweeping your funds.

    The method you use is to recover your funds to a different address generated by a different seed (seed B). This is the sweep method. Address will not be transferred since they are generated by different seed. The Recover Seed button after you create a new wallet will sweep your funds from your old seed to the new seed.

    @hesam1981
    If you go to the Terminal in Sia-UI and type wallet addresses, does it lists this address? 35bdf2d3e5090663dd5dbe5033c8267f5bbce34fad9ba1d809a8486e6ec32581497b1c1c8d68

    And what is the blockheight shown in Sia-UI?
