First of all i was using Bitcoin Core v0.11.0 on the day of the incoming transaction and now v0.11.1.

Last Tuesday was my first payment from using the bitcoinaliens faucets like their website(s) and apps Bitcoin Aliens, Free Bitcoin and Abundance.
However i did not see any BTC coming in and then on Wednesday i discovered that in Transactions there is an incoming transaction with the satus "conflicted"
and it has been the same fpr 2 days now and is a sort of greyed out.

I have been googling for hours but i do not find a solution for this specific case, and my knowledge of bitcoins and the bitcoin wallet is not sufficient to do some technical stuff
that involves a risk of loosing any BTC. i am unable to find the transaction id on https://blockchain.info
This is what i see in my Bitcoin Core Wallet:

Status: conflicted
Date: 10/27/2015 06:14
From: unknown
To: 1CEQ5tMkCDiA2HvUYgcsCDkgjeixxxXjd1
Credit: 0.00170843 BTC
Net amount: +0.00170843 BTC
Transaction ID: 098a9884c60df6c8296c742a1a1c02c62fac4736302e8a48e0a4cc77f26186e7-000


Is there any chance it will correct itself? can someone please help me?

It looks like Bitcoin Aliens screwed up. They were creating transactions which have a High S signatures, which are now considered non-standard transactions. Some nodes on the network will malleate those high s signatures to low s signatures, thus changing the txid (but nothing else; the transactions are still valid and the coins go to where they are supposed to). The problem is that Bitcoin Aliens built a chain of transactions which includes yours that spent from an original transaction that got malleated. The malleated transaction is the one that was confirmed, so that original transaction and any transactions in its chain will never be confirmed.

Your best option is to contact their support.

Such quickness...

here some links: this (A) -> https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/tx/fd742bc365a2bf288518a5bca83f70ed13fd14cea19c0b5221fa1c84f26b2da1

is the TX that was malleated the TX by OP depends on it via several other TX.

This -> https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/tx/7999688d2510fcb19c4e649dda2a5bac5d854a7039c343718f7ce05fb79d64d4

however is the TX that was confirmed instead. As such the long chain that followed A is invalid and will never confirm.

Marinusje if you want to remove the conflicted transaction from your wallet you need to run bitcoin core with -zapwallettxes. E.g. for Windows you

#1 close bitcoin core
#1.5 make sure its closed
#2 open run -> WIN + R
#3 enter bitcoins path with the added command -> c:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe -zapwallettxes
#4 confirm with OK
#5 let it do its thing for a while.

@knightdk  "Your best option is to contact their support." i wish i could find out how to contact them.

@shorena  So if i do use -zapwallettxes this wont affect any BTC i have in my wallet? And will they transaction be sent again automatically or do Bitcoin Aliens manually have to resend it?

Thanks

It seems they have a thread here -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=853374.0

No, this will not affect the BTC you have. What it does is remove all transactions it knows about (it keeps the labels though) and rescan the blockchain. Thus it will only forget about transactions that are not confirmed, everything else will be as before.

Bitcoin Aliens will need to resend the transaction. Better wording by knightdk below.

I think this guy: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=361306 is the owner of Bitcoin Aliens. Send him a PM.

zapwallettxes will remove all of the unconfirmed transactions from your wallet, including that conflicted one.

Bitcoin Aliens will need to resend the Bitcoin. They cannot just resend the transaction, since resending it will not change its status of unconfirmed.

=1 is the default value, but I like that you read up on the command first. Smiley
