I was wondering if it is common to see zero confirmations for a transaction after over two hours. I did not include any transaction reward, but I have never had any issues with that before. Quite a few blocks have been found and the transaction wasn't confirmed in any of them  Huh. Should I be worried? Here is the wallet address if it helps:

15s17qYWvj9vTJrjKnywGPiduM7NvbhNx7

Transaction ID:
2176854c0ed2e2a8e6c2f4aeb429e4548452ba59088cc63ff36634cdeae062a4

If anyone could put my mind at ease, that would be great. 2.44 btcs is a lot these days...

Cheers!

[Edit]
5 hours and blockchain has no record of the transaction: http://blockchain.info/search/2176854c0ed2e2a8e6c2f4aeb429e4548452ba59088cc63ff36634cdeae062a4

I count 150 transaction confirmations, so I wouldn't worry. Anyway, not including a transaction fee always has the risk of waiting some time before your transaction get's through.

Just curious, where do you see 150 confirmations? My wallet says 0/6. Thanks!

You didn't post a transaction ID.    Without that, all that can be suggested is that there was a transaction in which 2.44 BTC has been received to that address and then that amount was spent to 1FyySthyrzTbqqqjQL6QczwncHweMzX5NR (for 2.4395 BTC).  Both of those have confirmed.

 - https://blockchain.info/address/15s17qYWvj9vTJrjKnywGPiduM7NvbhNx7

If your client isn't showing that as confirmed, then your client probably hasn't reached "sync" yet. 

Now if you have some other transaction for this address then there's varying reasons why the network doesn't know about them but that's probably not what you are describing.

I don't think the transaction I am referring to is listed there. I had an incoming and outgoing transaction of the same amount (2.44) in that wallet yesterday, but this is a third and separate one. Here is all the info my wallet tells me about this specific transaction:

Status: 0/unconfirmed
Date: 4/1/2013 14:22
From: unknown
To: 15s17qYWvj9vTJrjKnywGPiduM7NvbhNx7 (own address)
Credit: 2.439 BTC
Net amount: +2.439 BTC
Transaction ID: 2176854c0ed2e2a8e6c2f4aeb429e4548452ba59088cc63ff36634cdeae062a4

It looks as though blockchain doesn't see that transaction ID at all.... Thanks for your help so far!

Did your bitcoin-qt client 'sync' as suggested above, it can't confirm transactions it doesn't know exists yet.

You could try regenerating the raw transaction order from input data using a tool like this

https://www.strongcoin.com/blog/the_easiest_way_to_create_secure_offline_bitcoin_transactions

and then resending it using "sendrawtransaction" command from a different bitcoin-qt client installation.  Could help if the transaction didn't end up getting propagated out into the network from your original client for some reason.


If all the sovereign non-cryptocurrencies will eventually collapse from hyperinflation, you can't afford *not* to invest in Bitcoin...  See my blog at http://minetopics.blogspot.com/ .

If, by sync, you mean downloaded all the previous blocks, then yes. Here is a screen shot to show you. http://imgur.com/iokGRz7

@mpfrank I do not control the wallet the bitcoins were sent from. I assumed that since the transaction showed up in my wallet that it had to be in the btc network and it would only be a matter of time before it was confirmed....I'll have to have a closer look at your suggestion though. I'm not sure if I fully understand.

I've been waiting over an hour for a transaction to confirm too. I transferred coins to BTCe to trade for some LTC's. By the time they get confirmation, there won't be enough to get what I wanted at the rate
LTC's are rising! Angry

I've had transactions take over 5 hours to confirm, so I wouldn't be too worried.

I was referring to this transaction although I now understand you probably weren't.

Is it usual for the transaction hash not to show up in the blockchain block explorer until it has been confirmed? Here: http://blockchain.info/search/2176854c0ed2e2a8e6c2f4aeb429e4548452ba59088cc63ff36634cdeae062a4

Make a backup of your newer wallet just in case; and make sure there is nothing missing when you load the old wallet.

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

OK, so this is an incoming transaction to you?

If so, the the party that sent it needs to re-broadcast it as your client knows about it but the rest of the network does not.    

To clear this, simply close your client and re-launch.  The memory pool will not have this transaction in it.

(The only exception there is if someone was cheating you, that transaction still existing in your memory pool might be evidence and shutting down your client would cause any trace of it to disappear.)
