First time post , I appreciate your patience in advance.

I bought monero on Kraken via my account. Once that was processed I then sent my monero to the Address generated from my GUI Wallet (windows os).

This was well over 7 hours ago and I still dont see my balance in the GUI yet Kraken states that the monero was sent succesfully.

I have taken a look at the block which was 1489964. I see my transaction within the block as expected.

Now I want to state I am using a local node for the GUI and that has not yet completed to 100% synch from what I can gather. So I assume once I am synched w/ my block in the blockchain I should be good moving forward.

If I do indeed see my transaction showing up within the block id/blockchain should I be less concerned about having lost the money ? That is my primary concern, that the money is lost somehow and wont show up,

Thanks In Advance!

  • @dEBRUYNE - Thank you for taking the time to answer, I want you to know I sincerely appreciate it . I have dabbled in BTC and ETH, and I would like to say I am very excited to be participating in the Monero world, the technology + potential is very exciting to me. Having said that I have used xmr.llcoins.net/checktx.html to check my txn from Kraken to my GUI wallet address. After inputting the txn hash, private view key and public address I indeed see 'This address owns output 1 with pubkey '***' for an amount 'xyz' , Total received : 'xyz' 'xyz' = amount sent from Kraken Jan 19, 2018 at 17:26

  • @dEBRUYNE - Thank you, currently still downloading the blockchain on a local node, which is literally taking days. Still not yet at my txn block yet. Having said that, I think I can point my GUI Wallet to a remote node to confirm my wallet funds, correct? If so, then I also assume that wont negatively effect my local node / daemon from continuing to download the blockchain while I simultaneously use the remote node to simply confirm my wallet / address balance in the GUI? Or, would I be able to run the command line wallet instead? Looking for ways to confirm wallet balance b4 download done Jan 21, 2018 at 16:36
  • Are you syncing the blockchain to the default directory? If so, I can give you specific steps for doing this.
