I sent some ae to the .chain address some hour ago and they don't appear


I just sent some ae to my .chain address few hours sgo and they don’t appear even if the txs seems confirmed un the block Explorer

Hard to tell without knowing the transaction or the name :man_shrugging:

If you post the name and transaction hash we can have a look.


We need to implement a fortune teller oracle that can answer this types of questions! :smiley:


@Manel did you update your .chain name to point to the address of your desire? So basically a name could point to a lot of different objects: an address, a contract, an oracle and etc. In order to do so though, you need to update it accordingly. Registering the name makes it yours but this is just setting the owner. If you want to be able to send tokens to it, you must update it to have an account it points to as well. For example my name is KrumTheFearsome.chain. I am not sure if the explorer exposes this data, so I am using the plain API instead:

$ curl https://mainnet.aeternity.io/v2/names/krumthefearsome.chain | jq '.'
  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
100   174  100   174    0     0    848      0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:--   848
  "id": "nm_2gPqMzVAEoaDaCkmtzDM3RwQVbzMJHT5uVnzhvfDUkEWMBiYnT",
  "pointers": [
      "id": "ak_2QqgCjHEPud4B74wfC5EqCgSUJAKy8egKhofGC6xVhmGJFyXYa",
      "key": "account_pubkey"
  "ttl": 262202

As you see - for this name, there is a pointer account_pubkey that well - points to my address. Now if you send tokens to KrumTheFearsome.chain, they would land at ak_2QqgCjHEPud4B74wfC5EqCgSUJAKy8egKhofGC6xVhmGJFyXYa. Hopefully this clears it a bit.
