My understanding is that confidential transactions "hide" the amount exchanged.

However I have found a confidential transaction where the input amount is visible.

Is that expected?

1 Answer 1


The input comes from a non-RingCT transaction. The outputs are RingCT outputs, and are therefore reflected as 0.

    It should also be noted that once the inputs are from RingCT transactions, even the input amounts will not be shown.
