Secure Node ate my private wallet


Hi Everyone, Hoping you can help. I setup a zencash secure node and deposited 1 zencash coin on my secure node’s private address (z_addr). However, after running it for 4 days, my private coin have disappeared! I typed “zen-cli listtransactions” but there isn’t any. Now my node has a “bal:0 isValidBal:false” so I suspect that even though the node is running, I probably won’t get any rewards.

Does anyone have any ideas on what happened?


Hi Zorgan,

Please run:
zen-cli z_gettotalbalance

this should show the balance from the z-address and t-address.

Also did you only send 1 transaction to the nodes z-address?


Hi Psyrax,

I ran zen-cli z_gettotalbalance and it said zero.

“transparent”: “0.00”,
“private”: “0.00”,
“total”: “0.00”

I sent three separate transactions to the node’s z-address for a total of 1 coin. I noticed on my node that the challenge would fail with this message: “Previous challenge still running”

Do you have any idea why a failing challenge would deplete my private coin?
