Hello, I am stuck in a bitcoin core transaction.

I recently found a litte bitcoin value that I had stored from a few years back, I transferede it to another wallet but I think I only set a "static fee" since I cant edit it; 0.00001782 BTC.

Is there any way to cancel this or make the fee higher? Will it ever go trough with such low fee?

Hope to hear from you.

It is hard to tell what the "actual" fee rate used is... as you haven't specified the data size of the transaction. If your transaction is only 226 bytes, that would make the fee rate 1782 / 226 = ~7.9 sats/byte... if your transaction is 1782 bytes, your fee rate is 1 sat/bye Tongue

Either way, it is pretty low... Roll Eyes

as for increasing the fee, you can do that if you enabled RBF (Replace-By-Fee) in your wallet... this requires a setting in the bitcoin.conf file (or commandline option):
If you have used that, and you are using v0.15+ you should be able to right click on the transaction and select "bump fee".

If you haven't used Opt-In RBF, then you're stuck until the transaction is either confirmed or it drops from the mempool (could take a few days, would need your wallet to be offline to prevent rebroadcasting).

Maybe consider using a transaction accelerator? There are "free" and "paid" options...

Your unlikely to have enabled the option, if you want to find some of the accelerators, your best bet is to check over at the services section:

There's a few websites that  offer it too, but normally require a minimum fee and I believe yours will fall under that threshold. For future, either enable the option on the new wallet, or use Electrum or similar wallets that allow editing the fee by default.
