Well, it seems like btc has some real issues/problems.

My last three transactions got stuck a couple days ago and now 2 of them now say "no transaction found" on Blockcypher

2 transactions were from my Blockchain wallet and one from Jaxx. All three had different fee amounts so who knows if that's truly the problem.

If it's true now that these transactions are forever lost I just lost a significant amount of btc and subsequently fiats.

I bought a hardware wallet but now I'm stuck. Do I attempt to transfer my remaining btc risking the loss of the last of my btc?

This is a mess! Prices and volumes are going through the roof and the btc infrastructure is inadequate to handle it and the transaction fees keep going up with low fee transactions being abandoned. Great!!! I guess I'll take my Lamborghini out for a drive on some unpaved country roads in the amazon now. (I don't have a Lambo but I think you get the picture)

If anyone cares to comment on this I'm all ears. If someone can tell me if I'll ever see my Bitsezzz again I would appreciate it.

This sucks.

Btw, if my bits are ”lost" I wonder who will "find" them?

Hmmmm, I smell something rotten underfoot. I wonder if there's some "skimming" going on?

Assuming you're using trustworthy software/hardware, there's no way they were "skimmed", since your transactions are protected by strong cryptography. Rather, you may have set a fee too low or otherwise created a transaction that miners aren't "interested" in mining--perhaps your client uses a bunch of dust inputs making the transaction size too large.

If it still doesn't confirm for a while, you should see the coins back in your available balance as it drops from mempools and your client considers it abandoned.

I have recently become active again after a long period of inactivity. Cryptographic proof that my account has not been compromised is available.

Okay Calm down . If the transaction is not found on the block explorers it means the network has forgotten it probably because it was unconfirmed for too long and it was not rebroadcasted . The bitcoin should be back to its original wallet . You can't lose your btc unless you forgot your master seed/private key or someone stole it .
Btw, if my bits are ”lost" I wonder who will "find" them?

If it was stolen, You should see a transaction where your bitcoins are transferred but instead you've seen a transaction not found so it's clearly not a skimming or anything like that .

Can you post the addresses/txIDs of these transactions?
If there were many small transactions going into your address, the fee will be higher. The fee is based on the size of a transaction and the state of the network. The size of a transaction is based on the addition of the size of input and output scripts. The more the input scripts (more input transactions) the higher the size of the transaction. I'm not certain, but this is probably the issue. And your coins should be returned to the wallet if they're rejected by the network. If not then they can be rebroadcast (if you post the TXids of those transactions, I may be able to do that for you).

Same problem here. I've sent some btc from my wallet which located in a local website (I am in Turkey) to my wallet in coinpayments.net. Transaction is shown in my coinpayments.net account as pending but when I click the trx id, I see "transaction not found" page. It has been almost 8-9 hours passed till the transfer request.
Is there anything I can do?

Thanks

Can you post the txID so we can see if it has/will confirm.
Other than that you'll probably just have to wait until it confirms. Is the site in Turkey considered trustworthy?

Now I can see the transaction after 10 hours in blockchain. It is still unconfirmed but I believe it'll be confirmed eventually.
Trxid is 388dcd050448f4462f1b453699106c3f880ea59273462a4cfdbd6554a76ef2e6
I guess there is nothing to do other than waiting. Is there?


Thank you for your interest

This is your transaction.

https://blockchain.info/tx/388dcd050448f4462f1b453699106c3f880ea59273462a4cfdbd6554a76ef2e6

Unfortunately it spends unconfirmed coins sent to it from earlier unconfirmed transactions. There's three chains of unconfirmed transactions that all sent unconfirmed coins to the address used in your transaction.

This is the first transaction chain that sent unconfirmed coins from one treansaction to the next in a series of five transactions.

https://blockchain.info/tx/ce7e58a5664fceaf50527a378e731f3891380cd245ead0b65d17f5054932228d

https://blockchain.info/tx/7fc0a8881caaa28871aad78ed13bae2efd43aafd72fa58409133fa89e5c3dd36

This is the second transaction chain.

https://blockchain.info/tx/d958fd08fa70e90090ad01c7ca71cdf06e0c40a6afbbc4ac2524d45db6d60ae5

This is the third transaction chain

You can do nothing and hope they confirm, pay a miner to confirm them, or try using the free viabtc accelerator (although it would probably take over a day to submit that many transactions to it).

This is the free accelerator page.

https://www.viabtc.com/tools/txaccelerator/

These are two miners you can pay to get confirmation.
