1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Abandoning a transaction on: January 03, 2018, 01:19:37 PM

Hoping someone can assist me, I have the below transaction which is unconfirmed, have tried broadcasting numerous times and others have too and accelerating it with no success and i understand it may never be confirmed due to the size vs fee, my questions are, if i abandon the transaction as per below steps and when my wallet (Bitcoin core Knots 0.15.1) restarts again as normal without the step 2 command so my wallet is broadcasting again that when my wallet re-syncs with the block chain the unconfirmed transaction will not re-appear in my wallet and that my wallet will not try to re-send the transaction again?

I don`t wish to advise my TX ID as i want to stop trying to broadcast it, i don`t wish to try to re-send with higher fee either i just want the BTC returned to my wallet, i understand this may take some time until all the nodes drop my TX from their mempools.

Total Inputs   0.03266100 BTC
Total Outputs   0.03166006 BTC
Fee   0.00100094 BTC
Fee / KB   0.00008436 BTC
Size   11,865 bytes

Abandon transaction steps
1 - Delete mempool file from bitcoin code directory
2 - Start bitcoin with -walletboradcast=0
3 - Once bitcoin started i right-click transaction and and i choose abandon transaction
4 - Turn wallet off and restart

Thanks in advance

Hi All

Wanted to know what your thoughts are on how long the below tx will likely take to confirm, I paid 0.001 BTC network fee to send 0.03 BTC but seems as the size of 11865 bytes is large so my fee needs to be more, any ideas of what fee should be to get this confirmed as i have the option to increase my network fee, my wallet Bitcoin Knots shows fees in kilobyte so would appreciate if you can confirm an ideal fee in kilobyte?


I posted in an accelerator thread asking for my tx id to be accelerated already too.

Thanks in advance for any help Evan
