Hello,
I was supposed to receive a transaction to my Electrum wallet receiving code, but it never showed up.
Prior this bigger transaction I have tried to send a smaller amount to my Electrum and it appeared just fine, but I have never received the second one.
I have used the same address and the transaction appears completed on chain.so but no other explorer.
It was sent 5 hours ago and I have tried to restart my wallet and switching servers manually, even upgrading to 3.0.1 version.
I even made a new wallet file with the same seed just to see if it's going to refresh.

You will need to provide a transaction ID and/or wallet addresses for anyone to be of assistance.

Where did this transaction come from? Did someone send it to you? Did you withdraw money from an exchange? Did you buy coins from an online service?

If the transaction does not appear on any block explorers other than chain.so, chances are it will not get confirmed and it sounds like it has not propagated well through the network (might be a double spend? or an invalid transaction? or low fee? or spending lots of unconfirmed inputs?)

Hey, the TX ID is 73c54b872aec56d447ef844740558fcb067f74f53fcf75749df6a248567b783e but as far as I know its only available to see on chain.so;

The transaction comes from a website where you buy and sell your gaming skins, as a way of withdrawal.

You transaction is in a long chain (like 30-40+) of unconfirmed transactions... which goes all the way back to here: https://blockchain.info/tx/459e88b92a47af82e51d54550f34e489c3176e3e1d12e24f141e92fc380da004

All of the inputs to THAT transaction look like they're confirmed, so once that big transaction confirms (could take a while with current network congestion and the "low" fee of only 87 sats/byte Sad)... the rest of the transactions will slowly start to confirm. So, there is hope you may get your coins, but it could take a LONG time.

That website looks like it is handling withdrawals in the worst manner possible... It simply uses previous unconfirmed "change" to create a new transaction... and they're making massive chains of unconfirmed transactions Roll Eyes Undecided

Thank you so much, you have made me feel a little better now.
This is honestly my first BTC transaction even though I have spent ages reading about it, but I have never came across this kind of an issue on the internet.
I will update this thread once/if I receive the BTC.
Anyone else who'd have another insight/possibility of outcome, please do not hesitate to reply to this thread as well.
