that didn't worked in my case. had a similar problem. but installing new version and restore old wallet seems not to solve this problem.

Soooooooooooo many people having problem with sync with the wallet and yet the technical people are ignoring this for soooooooooo long.
I am wondering if they ever look at all these messages and try to put them in our shoes.
@eddyqtum did you try the latest release ? https://github.com/qtumproject/qtum/releases
And if still, you can delete all the data files except for wallet.dat and restart it again.
On Linux: ~/.qtum
On OSX: ~/Library/Application Support/Qtum
On Windows: %APPDATA%\Qtum (copy and paste this into your Explorer address bar and it'll take you there)
@CodeFace did that. Now the wallet is syncing again. but restoring my backup-wallet seems to not work correctly. after restart the wallet it had said 14 days behind, but should just be 6 days. so my balance stays zero. any idea? thanks in advance.
@Eddyqtum i'm sure qtum-team is working hard and they still have a lot of work on the desk. they are just humans and no robots. so please try to be a bit more patient as software-development doesn't always evolve linear. i'm sure they are reading our posts and working on solutions. time will tell.
@stban did it stuck again ?
No it doesn't. It completely sync and display that it is up-to-date. but balance still display zero.
I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, in case that this is relevant.
@stban do you know which address holds the qtum coins ?
you can go to "help" => "debug window" => "console" and type
validateaddress youraddressto check whether the address belongs to you.
if so, maybe try
@CodeFace did that. seems that address is not mine :-(
that is really strange, coz when i sent it from bittrex, qtum was shown in my wallet before that syncing issues appeared. so does it really mean that all my qtum (13) are lost?
would the wallet show a warning if my wallet-backup is broken?
thanks for your time man.
@CodeFace for my tx from bittrex i used 4 seperate qtum-wallet addresses like it is recommended. but all 4 addresses doesn't belong to me anymore. that is really sad ...
@stban sorry to hear that, how did you get your address when withdraw from bittrex ?

@CodeFace not sure if i understand your question right. before i withdrawed my qtum from bittrex i opened the qtum-wallet and got a receive-address. then i copy and paste it to bittrex.
and on bittrex there i have a withdraw-history which is showing the qtum-addresses. as i mentioned before, every single of the 4 tx went fine and qtum showed up in my wallet. but now even the tx-history in my wallet is empty. so i really have no clue.
@codeface Happy New Year. Wanna say thank you, that you had taken time to response to my issue. Appriciate that alot. Bought more qtum because the project is awesome and team is working hard.
@stban Thank you and Happy New Year !

Hi, @stban Did you ever get your wallet situation figured out? I had the same thing happen to me but on the Android platform. I'm hoping there is something the devs can do to help me.
@ryany hey ryan, unfortunately not. my qtum-wallet still displays zero balance and except of @CodeFace , no dev from the team respond to my issue. I still not figured out if it is a bug, or i did something wrong. I also downgraded the wallet back to the previous version where my qtum was displayed correct, but sadly it didn't change anything. So i accepted that my qtum is lost, as it is shown in the blockchain, but didn't belong to my wallet-address anymore. Hope someone from the devs can help you out with your problem, and i hope that it wasn't a big amount you put in your wallet.
@ryany did you backup your seed words ?
@ryany did you get back your qtum? and if so, what have you done to solve the problem? cheers
