I was going through some old wallets and found some 'pocket change' in one that was now worth about $200.00 or so so I tried to send it to the exchange but I screwed something up.

Electrum 3.0.2
Funds initially recovered from MultiBit HD using seed into Electrum
Initial Transaction ID: c8892d1440084990a2f90ca608e836d01b36686963aaf4488f634a05c49c96bc
Subsequent RBF Transaction ID: c41ff5ccff8697c95d52fb6130956e544af176988e90efbd6c25320c9dae3987 and same ID on   BlockCypher

I am not entirely sure how the fees were so low, including the bump up in fees using RBF ...  Huh


It looks like there are 139 inputs and 4 of those are listed as VERY DORMANT

I have been away from BTC for a while and apparently quite a bit has changed, such as the fork which I knew nothing about until I had already sent that transaction. Apparently those coins are under the fork and I could have got BTC Cash out of it too but ....   oh well.

I am in the process now of updating BTC Core (still 46 weeks behind) right now as there might still be some residual 'pocket change' in that wallet as well.

Any insight on what I did wrong or if the Double Spend or transaction size of 24994 bytes might allow it to be kicked out would be helpful.

The transaction size in a transaction is related to both the number of inputs and the number of outputs. Since you have loads of inputs, the transaction size would be big, inevitability. The RBF bumped up your fee slightly, probably because you didn't have enough Bitcoins in your wallet. The size of your transaction is fine. It can be mined.

As with the Bitcoin Cash, they are in the original addresses.

Thanks for the info and I did figure out how to claim the BCH and it went through so I feel more confident that the BTC will make it through eventually as well. Crazy transfer fees for just a few dollars worth of BCH

Input total           0.01857646 BCH*            24.53 USD
Output total         0.01115446 BCH*            14.73 USD
Fee                     0.00742200 BCH*             9.80 USD
Fee per kB           0.00041247 BCH*              0.54 USD
