Why is my Exodus wallet balance different than the blockchain?
If you've looked up your bitcoin address on a block explorer, such as blockchain.com, only to find that the balance doesn't quite add up to your Exodus balance, please don't fret!
Your Exodus wallet manages multiple BTC addresses, not just one. Each time you make a BTC transaction, your wallet also uses change addresses to receive leftover transaction-output change. Your Exodus bitcoin wallet balance is the sum of bitcoin held at each of your Exodus bitcoin addresses. You can see a list of all of your used bitcoin addresses along with their balances by exporting a CSV file.
If you'd like to cross-check your Exodus BTC balance on blockchain.info, you will need to export your bitcoin Extended Public Key (xpub). Your xpub generates all the public addresses associated with your bitcoin wallet.
You can find your xpub in the Asset Menu for bitcoin. To open the Asset Menu for bitcoin, simply navigate to the bitcoin section of your wallet and click on the three dots in the upper right corner. If you don't see the Asset Menu, you may need to upgrade to our latest version.
In the Asset Menu, select the Export xpub option. A .txt file will drop into an 'exodus-exports' folder on your computer's Desktop.
In this file, you'll see your extended public key. Copy and paste your xpub (including the text 'xpub') into the blockchair.com search field and hit Enter.
Exodus uses two different types of Extended Public Keys: an xpub and a zpub. The latter is used to create your native SegWit addresses. You will need to search both keys one by one to get a full overview of your transactions. Check out this article to learn more about SegWit:
You should now see a comprehensive history and balance of your Exodus bitcoin wallet directly on blockchair.com.
