@HI-TEC99

Wasn't my thread mate but thanks very much. I had an inkling this was the problem but I was worried nevertheless. Should I keep the same client and wait, then update the programme I use, or get a new programme now and await for my BTC to return?

I'd install electrum and import your multibit private keys into it as explained in the post I linked to. Your coins will probably show in electrum, and if they do you can send them immediately.

Got my electrum wallet set up, imported the key and now I have 1.498BC unconfirmed, but the transaction has appeared on blockchain.info so I expect it'll turn up soon. Thanks a bunch for your time and help!

Do you have even the address where your btc save? and the address where you want to send like you said coinbase wallet..
Give us those address..
And if multibit created a logs export the first or last log so that we can know if what honestly the problem of you transaction .

My Multibit wallet: https://blockchain.info/address/1F7nGCkejR94bbrp1oo62sGWKxVB3w3uV6

I'm going to assume my coinbase wallet (with a balance of 0) has never seen any of the transactions I attempted because the Multibit client was too old with a preset fee which was too low. Now I just have to hope that they return to my Multibit wallet locally in due course.

Blockchain.info has my balance at 1.5BTC, which is a relief. Guess I just have to play the waiting game?

can not help without tx id's

did you keep them?

I lost the first one, but Multibit keeps a log of events and I trawled through it after the first mishap and believe I found the hash. When I ran it through one of those websites (forgive me I forgot the name of it), it said the transaction didn't exist.

I would imagine the same thing has happened to the 2nd one. I can trawl through the log again though and find them if need be.

Hello everyone, thanks for your time. Question as per title; I will post the sequence of events below to make it clear what has happened:

- approx 3 years ago: bought 1.5 bitcoins, located in 'Multibit' wallet.
- 3 days ago: attempted to send roughly 1.49BTC to a 'coinbase' wallet.
- Transaction was unconfirmed seen by 1 peer for several hours, sought googles help and ended up resetting blockchain and transactions to 2 days prior of current failing transaction.
- Once this completed, I had 0BTC in my Multibit wallet (there was something like 0.00X left after I sent the 1.49)
- I tried resetting again, but this time right up to the present time. This time 1BTC flat returned to my wallet, but 0.5 remained unaccounted for.
- I tried sending 0.9BTC to my coinbase wallet, thinking that perhaps my fee wasn't high enough, but the same thing happened. This time I reset again to the present time but now I'm back at 0BTC.

I wonder if using an outdated Multibit client is the cause of this now. Have I lost my BTC? What is the best course of action now? Leave it a few days? Export my wallet to a new Multibit client?

Any help or advice appreciated, thanks.
