Can you please add a note to include the txid needing confirmation in the initial PM to me? I am receiving an increasing number of PMs asking for help every day, and it is becoming a hassle asking users for the txid in response to a message asking if I can help. This is especially true considering that the time I am able to devote to the forum is declining.

Thanks. 
Done.

I have just paid viaBTC.com 0.01BTC to accelerate a stuck transaction (due to low fees) and it was done straight away. You have to email them support@viabtc.com to ask them to do this manually.

If u send me ID of stucked transactions and they all have valid inputs and not a dust fee I probably can help u to make it confirmed.

Quickseller was able to help get about $1800 in BTC to confirm within 2 hours after being unconfirmed for about 24 hours previously. He provides a good service and helped me understand the blockchain/miner's fee problem much better than I previously understood.

Thumbs up and thank you Quickseller.

I bought some bitcoin from coinbase.  I then tried to transfer the BTC to my electrum wallet.  Not knowing what mBTC was, I used acronymfinder.com and was told (incorrectly) that it was microBTC.  Accordingly, I attempted to transfer 1000x as much BTC from the Coinbase wallet to my electrum wallet.  The result is now that the entire amount of BTC that was in Coinbase at that time was transferred, but my electrum wallet says that there is a transaction still pending listing the larger amount.  What do I do about this pending transaction?

Parenthetically, I have bought more BTC since then which sits in Coinbase and has not been transferred.  So, the only practical effect of this pending transaction may be to be (anti-)cosmetic.  Should I cancel the erroneous transaction or what?

Hi.
I´m new here and also a Newbie by using BTC.
I have MultibitHD installed and send a amount on May, 24. But until now the program shows me still SENDING but until now the transaction has not been completed. I also turned the program off for more than 5 days. But today I logged in again, and there is still the value in SENDING  and also an other unconfirmed value which may be the fees, but I am not sure. But I am not able to complete the transaction and also the transaction has not been forgotten and the BTC turned back to my wallet.
Is there a way to cancel and fix it?
Thanks in advance

Meh, I step away from BTC for a couple of months and the tx fees have seemingly exponentially tripled on me from what I have been using, so now I have a transaction stuck until its forgotten really because I don't really have the dust funds to move anything from my wallet anymore.. And I don't think any miner would want to confirm it because of me unknowingly using fees from a few months ago without investigating..  Cry ..I also realized that the RBF info stuff was not showing in my Electrum client because I didn't know about the updates and was still using 2.5.3, So this is a learning incident that in reality is totally my fault. Thank you for helping me figure out why my transaction has been stuck for the past couple of days. On a side-note, how long does it generally take for transactions to be forgotten..?

I have a stuck transaction going to 8 days now. I make a bitcoin exchange from a website, after sending them payment in my local currency I expect them to fund my bitcoin address but no sign of payment. After talking with their support they provide me payment proof

https://blockchain.info/tx/99d8f3a29b7962d90828694057b01a89169285b0eaab637b77c7b19d916a5300

The transaction seems to have a good fee so can someone tell me why this payment got stuck for so long??

The only thing I can observe is that my electrum wallet still show that my address balance is zero

Thanks for the post. It sounds like I just need to wait. I transferred the bitcoins I have stored on Bitcoin Core to paper wallets. I generated the wallet addresses off line and initiated the transfers through Bitcoin core in offline mode. These have yet to confirm but my balance shows them spent. I think the default processing fee was small. I'll wait for either the confirmation or the transaction to cancel after it times out. Does this sound OK? Nervous Newbie.

I think you need to share your transaction id

Your transaction has unconfirmed output https://blockchain.info/tx/a257e852d4fcd099c2feea4b0af6417f41276f096f9d9b9c1e8701f543b04c67

Now, you have to wait for all of them from bottom to top to confirm.

edit: First one(or last in my post) is problem because it was sent with less than 1 satoshi fee. That is problem.

Hm, try to contact this guy https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1946761.0 maybe he can help you.

Thanks! I will follow your instruction.

Edit : Further investigation shows that the exchanger that is supposed to fund me use blockchain.info wallet. From experience, wallet like electrum will not allow me to spend from a transaction with unconfirmed parent and maybe this is why there are so many do not use blockchain.info post.

I opened my BitCoin Core Application for the first time since about 2013. I have 0.05 BTC in it. On 6/8/2017, I deposited 0.0010 into Bittrex but I have not seen the deposit credited to my account yet. My BitCore was still getting caught up on the blockchain and when I let the house this morning it was on 6/19/2017. So should I expect to see my deposit once my BitCoin Core App gets caught up?

You can send Bitcoin before Bitcoin core is fully synced, but it won't show in your client until your core is fully synced.

I hope someone can help me. A couple of hours ago i made an transaction from my bitcoin core wallet to my kraken wallet. Unfortunately i put in the wrong miners fee (way to low). I found this topic and followed the steps of starting bitcoin core with -walletbroadcast=0 and then i was able to abandon the transaction. When i did this i got my bitcoins back in my core wallet.

I then send my bitcoins again to my kraken account, this time i used dynamic fee and put the slider all the way to the right and also increased the amount of btc to transfer just because i wanted to transfer more btc. The status of the transaction showed "offlline". i figured out this was because i started core with "-walletbroadcast=0". So i restarted core without "-walletbroadcast=0" and then the status showed "0/unconfirmed, in mempool". When i search up the transactionid in blockchain.info it cant find the transaction. So i am wondering what went wrong and how can i fix this?

ps i also tried the rebroadcast the transaction by getting the getrawtransaction and using blockchain.info/pushtx, this gave me the message: Validation Error: Error #-26: 258: txn-mempool-conflict

The original transactionid with the way to low miners fee is: e57f73265506025cf486d4d51c959b5ede9117dddba6bc8a6764875ae4edd6b4
The new transactionid is: 6d50925ccae27615480b0a9b11f7be3391f2805a09b343d93d0adcd7ffeb601b

Thanks in advance!
