Very nice article, thankyou. AS you conversed most stuck transactions are due to low tx fee, I used to use Multibit wallet but sor some time, due to none custom tx setting, some transactions took four days!

I have not changed my desktop wallet now to Electrum, with a fee slider utility. No more long transactions.

The problem is, most noobs use web wallets because they are too lazy to download Core, or any of the wallets that will give you proper options like -zapwallettxes, RPF or whatever.

Thank you for taking the time to write this guide on how to unstick a transaction but it does highlight what a fiasco this currently is.

I've been having a headache today because I sent one transaction with low fees via Bread wallet.  It wasn't 0 fees, just 'economical' of around $0.45 in fees for a $15 transaction.
That has got stuck hence why I'm here.
I next did another transaction for normal fees ($3+ in fees) for a $10 transaction... crazy rate but thought whatever.


3 hours later still nothing.

Using electrum I did a CPFP adding another $5 in fees.  Transactions are still stuck an hour later.... is it just me or is bitcoin actually broken right now?  Why don't we just ban transactions under a certain value if it's likely to get stuck... I'd much prefer a UI pop up saying "Your transaction has fees of less than the current minimum $4.50, are you really sure you want to publish this?"

I'm not a big blocker advocate but I have to admit it's currently a terrible user experience and we need to fix it somehow.

Many thanks for this tutorial! It's very useful.

I've made a mistake and sent a transaction with low fees, and it's stuck for more than 48 hours in the mempool with 0 confirmation.

So I've started my bitcoin-qt (version 0.15.0.1) with option '-zapwallettxes', and it cleared my unconfirmed transaction from my wallet.

Then I've sent the same amount to the same address but with a higher fee (dynamically calculated), the transaction appears on my bitcoin-qt client, but if I search for its transaction id on blockchain explorers, e.g. blockchain.info, it says that this transaction doesn't exists.

I've restarted again with '-zapwallettxes', resend the transaction, but it seems that the transaction is not inserted on the mempool/blockchain.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

hmm, no luck yet. any idea what to do?
ViaBTC won't accept it because the fee is below 10 sats/byte... and you transaction is over 400 bytes, so ConfirmTX.com want $4 to accelerate it.

So, I've gone ahead and pushed this for you via AntPool... hopefully they will mine a block shortly and it'll get included Smiley

Hi guys Ive sent 3 payments with low fees 1 sat/B each using bitcoin core. It's almost been 48hrs and still not confirmed. I've submitted them to confirmtx.com about 10hrs ago and still nothing. What are my options? Can I somehow increase the fees for the transactions? I mean will it eventually get confirmed or it will be in the mempool indefinitely?

Thanks for any help

Hi ohmanpleasehelp

I used the free service and waited about a day and no confirmation so I approached confirmtx this morning asking if I could pay $4 each transaction to quicken up the confirmation process, He/she replied quickly and said I could and gave me a bitcoin address. I've sent the payment through and was told it will be confirmed in 1-2hours. Its almost been 2 hours now and still no confirmation so not really sure it even worked  Huh

Hey ya so its still not confirmed and he/she also stopped replying. I'll just assuming the person is asleep  Cheesy but for sure its not within the time frame quoted. I'm just a bit stuck now not sure what else I can do than to wait and hope for it to get confirmed or gets rejected (no idea how long that takes either). I'm too scared to do the double spend thing so I can only wait.  Cry

mason -- yeah, I'd like to increase the transaction fee, but my wallet won't let me do CFFP. running out of ideas here. I also heard that transactions eventually drop out of the mempool, but mine has been sitting there for a week, so I'm not buying that either.

keep me posted if the people who run that website ever wake up! ha.

I tried confirmtx about 10 hours ago and haven't had any luck with that either. Afterburner's app said it couldn't confirm my tx and then gave me a website address that didn't work to explain why.

I feel like my btc is just going to sit in the queue forever. This is a real bummer.

Hey I stayed up almost all night reading up and watching youtube vids and I fixed it myself!  Grin Because I've sent it via bitcoin core I was able to abandon the stuck transactions and resend one trans again with much higher fee (300 satoshis/byte) but had an error something to do with duplicate in the mempool so I just left it and went to sleep. This morning when I woke up it went through right away and confirmed!

I was able to do this because of OP's helpful information! Thank you OP!!

Edit: I send my second trans with 280 satoshis/byte fee and it got confirmed in 6min!  Grin

It used to be that if you included 1 Sat / Byte there was a pretty good chance of eventually getting confirmed, if you didn't mind waiting several days.  But now, after segwit, what is the minimum fee to stick around in the pool long enough to eventually get confirmed?  Is it 1 Sat / Byte or 1 Sat / Weight Unit?  Should we all be talking fees in terms of weight units nowadays?  How is the mempool minimum transaction fee coded in a post-segwit world?

I bought a couple of bitcoin in 2012 where they languished on my successive Mac Book Pros in a Bitcoin-QT v0.6.2.2 wallet.  I now realise they are worth - ahem - something!  The wallet still fires up even though it is still calls itself a beta wallet and so I thought I would first try to send my lovely bitcoin to a new and glossy Exodus wallet.

Now being completely new to this I got my receive address for my Exodus Wallet and tried sending 0.1 BTC to my Exodus wallet. Eventually (maybe 5 hours later) it showed it had arrived but with zero confirmations. This first transaction still shows with 0.1 BTC "Pending" in the Exodus Wallet (sent Friday Dec 1st 10.04.10 PM).

I realised I had not included any fee on this first send but  I didn't see anything I could do about that.

Anyway I then sent the balance of BTC in my Bitcoin-QT wallet, but this time included a 0.0004 BTC fee to the same address.  But, 34 hours later it does not even show it having arrived at the Exodus wallet.

Now I really do not know what to do.  I assume if I leave my Bitcoin-QT wallet up and running it will keep broadcasting the transactions and so they may never disappear. So I have quit the wallet.  But suppose I leave it for a few days. If I fire up the wallet then I assume it will broadcast again and I will be back in the same situation?  I could start it up offline and restore from a backup I did just prior to sending the first transaction - I guess that would cut out the re-broadcasts.  Would that be the thing to do?

Sorry - I feel like a complete dufus but some seriously expert advice on how best to get back to the status quo anti with my lovely bitcoins in either the old wallet or better still my new flashy Exodus one, would be hugely appreciated!!!!

Jozwolf

THIS QUESTION WAS ANSWERED ON https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/64041/sending-bitcoin-from-bitcoin-qt-v0-6-2-2-wallet FOR ANYONE WHO HAS A SIMILAR ISSUE.  ALL IS NOW RESOLVED WITH THE BITCOIN RESTORED TO A NEW BITCOIN CORE WALLET.  MANY THANKS TO THOSE WHO PROVIDED EXPERT ASSISTANCE THERE.
