Root Wallet Address


#1

Apologies if this info is available, I’ve searched etc. but unfortunately can’t turn it up.

Can I get the root address for my wallet as opposed to the individual receive addresses so I can see the total of my wallet on cardano explorer for example?

This is impossible. The system is designed exactly so that no one except the wallet owner could connect separate addresses and transactions together, unless they have a common transaction. Having a “root address” like this would allow anyone to connect separate transactions together and undermine security.

If you want an offline wallet - you need to monitor all its addresses. This is exactly why a paper wallet only have a single address, unless restored. And if you have an online wallet - then just use Daedalus to monitor the total balance.
