I have a monero-gui wallet: it shows my XMR balance, which is not zero. When I open monero-wallet.cli it shows my balance is 0.000. What is going on here?

  • Both were created from the same seed? Both have a daemon running? Both have refreshed through the same (latest) block? Sep 23, 2018 at 23:12

This look like you have a balance on subaddresses but not on main address.
While the GUI aggregates all accounts addresses in a single balance, the CLI does not.

You could do a show_balance all on the CLI (IIRC) and check if the balance is on one or many subaddresses.
