How I solved my zero-balance issue in the Daedalus ITN Wallet

Quick and dirty

  1. Restored my wallet using Cardano wallet backend (Cardano BE)
  2. Sent a 2 tAda transaction from Cardano BE to my pledge address. And — Voila !!

Detailed description of the problem and solution:

The problem

  1. Your funds went back from the rewards wallet to the balance wallet.
  2. Your funds seem to have vanished, your wallets showed a zero balance.

There is a particular transaction that might be preventing the problem to be solved by deleting the state directory. But it is a good thing!

How-to send a transaction using Cardano BE

  1. Run Cardano-wallet backend connecting it to your already running jormungandr node.
./cardano-wallet serve — node-port 3100 — port 8090 — genesis-block-hash 8e4d2a343f3dcf9330ad9035b3e8d168e6728904262f2c434a4f8f934ec7b676### 
Notes:
1) The serve command allows you to connect to an already running jormungandr node
2) 3100 is my REST listen port
3) 8090 is the default port for Cardano Wallet
4) If you are reading this you already know the genesis block hash of the incentivized testnet
