Title: block explorers differ, cant spend my balance
Post by: lelapin on January 25, 2015, 08:40:00 AM
this is the story, sent my last 0.3 to my gambling page nitrogen.eu wagered and lost them tx id 23be7665094e1829fa2a5f79b5076075c3efbba78215fd886d3eb930261c2afe they credited mw without confirmation. this tx does not show on blockchain.info only at blocktrail. ok so, next day I logged into my wallet at blockchain.info to check if I had 1 or 2 bucks left to gamble at luckyb.it, and to my surprise the 0.3 are still there (1AndReyU6rVV2bjS6a6XoVdkhFqsyycK9Z ) so Im like "score" and sent part of it to 1BgtQ8YpQUJWnch2fo6eHK3ATZwCvQvj2ba and made a double spend, now all my funds are stuck and blockchain.info shows unconfirmed double spend 6ce8c7e4fd2999b765c07fcd0239887bb152576ab9f410714c6e321ea6c9ff8b blockr shows all funds still at 1AndRey... and blocktrail.com shows money gone but unconfirmed, my wallet is at blockchain.info, it shows a positive balance but I cant spend it, so is it possible to keep my money as if I never sent the 0.3?
Should I import to bitcoin-qt and delete unconfirmed tx's?
should I wait and see what gets confirmed?
Whats the best way to go around this so that the coin is spendable by someone and not stay in limbo forever?

I'm not sure, but the first transaction you posted cannot be found at blockchain.info https://blockchain.info/search?search=23be7665094e1829fa2a5f79b5076075c3efbba78215fd886d3eb930261c2afe

Second transaction indeed shows a double spend.
https://blockchain.info/tx/6ce8c7e4fd2999b765c07fcd0239887bb152576ab9f410714c6e321ea6c9ff8b

My gut says you should wait a little bit.
