Hello everyone. I am having a problem. After not using bitcoin for several years, I recently uploaded the entire block chain and attempted to pay 0.04461 bitcoin for a subscription. In my wallet, it says I sent the coins, but it is not on the block chain, nor does the transaction have any confirmations.

I included a transaction fee of 0.00001 BTC.


The transaction ID is 15385dbc5087008ff6622c6d525b6473951c778e4b11b5bfed7e6011c52b907e

I am using bitcoin QT version 4.8.3.

Also, at the top of my wallet I have an alert that says "URGENT: Alert Key compromise, upgrade required".

However, I have read from several sources that I can safely ignore that warning.

Does anyone know why my bitcoin transactions aren't reaching the block chain or going through? (It has now been 14 hours since I sent the bitcoin)

 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are thousands of unconfirmed transactions lately. In order to get your transaction included in a block, you need to increase the fee to make it rise to the top of the mempool.  That fee is way too low. I sent something four days ago with a fee of 50 cents and I'm still waiting.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.

I figured that was the culprit (the transaction fee)

I sent another transaction just 30 minutes ago and included a transaction fee of 0.001 this time. Still nothing on the block chain, nor any confirmations.

I will keep you guys updated.

Your transaction would reach the mempool whether a low fee or not.
The problem is that your txs have not been broadcasted and is likely related to your client.

Also, you can ignore the alert key warning. Bitcoin Core has discontinued the alert message system.
But if you are having trouble with your client, you may need to upgrade to a newer version since what
you are using now is so far back that many things have changed. If you wish to continue with your client,
you could manually push your raw txs from another source like this: https://blockchain.info/pushtx

I'm not an expert, but I'm sure AChow101 will come along and explain you need a newer client and why.

He might need to upgrade his wallet to get a transaction accepted by the network because his outdated wallet's sending transactions with high S values.


Bitcoin core nodes will now only accept transactions with low S values. They used to generate and accept transactions with high S values, but that's no longer allowed since the release of core wallet v0.11.1 in October 2015. If his wallet's older than v0.11.1 he needs to upgrade.


https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.11.1

Quote
Test for LowS signatures before relaying

Make the node require the canonical ‘low-s’ encoding for ECDSA signatures when relaying or mining. This removes a nuisance malleability vector.

if his wallet's generating transactions with high S values then raw transaction pushing services like https://blockchain.info/pushtx will reject any high S value transactions it generates.

Thanks for the help guys.

I upgraded my wallet to the latest version of Bitcoin Core, but shortly after it said my block chain was corrupted. I am having to download the whole block chain from the start.

Will the transactions I sent with my old wallet go through once my upgraded wallet is synced?

I'm just playing around with the new Bitcoin Core wallet, and I've noticed they have an "abandon transaction" feature.

If I click Abandon transaction on the payment I attempted to make earlier - would the coins then be returned to my wallet for me to spend again?

Again, the transaction has not hit the block chain yet, let alone received a confirmation.

I would prefer to do that, if possible, as downloading the entire block chain again will take me awhile.

...

Likely not since if you indeed generated a High S tx then you will need to perform another tx
where your signature uses the v0.11.1 mandated low S.

...

Yes, Abandon transaction and create a new one if the coins did not "appear" in your wallet.
They will not be accepted on the network until you redo with a new tx, according to HI-TEC99.

if the fee should be increased sending is with bitcoin to say expensive. we must find a solution to this, because if the continuous course bitcoin slogan which says that bitcoin is a means of payment transaction fees are very cheap may not be appropriate.
