Hello All...
I processed a transaction (0.1 bitcoins) on 12/8/17 and it is still unconfirmed.  I am using Bitcoin Core wallet (.13.1).  Is there any way to either get it confirmed, or, cancel it?  The transaction went to Bittrex, and they have it listed in the transaction history, but it's not in my "available" balance yet. I also see it on Blockchain Explorer and its listed as "unconfirmed".  I read one post where it was suggested I try sending another transaction to the same address and the two would be processed as a pair, but that was unsuccessful.  The transaction in question is likely unconfirmed because I selected the minimum (0.00001000) transaction fee.  I think now that was dumb, but I was in no hurry for the transaction to process, but I didn't think this long was a possibility.  I also didn't want to pay the $200+ dollars that was initially applied by the wallet.  It is possible for me to process my own transaction using my asic miner?

Thanks...

Thanks for the response, but I'm not comfortable posting that.  Just looking for some suggestions on what, if anything, can be done to get it confirmed or cancel it.  I suspect it will get confirmed at some point, I just don't know when... perhaps months when the fees start to diminish (if ever).  As a miner I like the high fees, but as an investor I fear these high fees will be the downfall of widespread adoption of Bitcoin.  No one is going to buy a cup of coffee and pay a $5.00 transaction fee.

...I read one post where it was suggested I try sending another transaction to the same address and the two would be processed as a pair, but that was unsuccessful...

That was not quite the right thing to do. There are two things you can try. I think Core has the ability to do both.

1. If your transaction has a change address, send bitcoins from the change address to yourself with a high fee. If a miner wants the high fee, they will have to include both transactions. This is called "child-pays-for-parent" or CPFP.

2. You can also try sending the same transaction again, but pay a higher fee. This is called "replace-by-fee", or RBF. Note that this this is not the same as sending from the same address.

That is it... You paid $0,19 worth of fees, do you think that it is enough?

The actual rates for making a transaction go through in less than one hour are aproximately 420 satoshis per byte.

It means that a normal transaction is going to cost you about $19 (aproximately)

You paid a 1% of that, dont expect to see one confirmation in less than one month.

Hi odolvlobo... thank for the suggestions.  A) how would I find the "change" address?  and B) How would I send the SAME transaction again? (using Core .13.1) Would that be a console command?  I am willing to pay 20-bucks or so in fees, but I got in this situation by not wanting to pay the over 200 the wallet automatically applied.  There is a function to add a custom amount, and I could try the 20-bucks once I know how to send the transaction again.  Not apposed to paying a fair fee, but don't like getting bent over either.  Paying 200 bucks for a 2k dollar transfer is just stupid crazy.

Currently about 157,840. But, to keep it in perspective, it only counts regarding the number of transactions made. Is there a way to see how long it takes for a transaction to be confirmed, without doing one.

Cool

If the fee is below 10 sat/B, the viaBTC accelerator can't help, because despite of they're free but they need to have a little profit on every accelerated transaction too. Usually the small fees are higher than that even in case of a low cost transaction is choosen in the wallet. Without tx number, we can't even check the sat/B of the transaction, because it not only depend on the fee itself but the size of the transaction (inputs, outputs, etc...)

The last time that i ever heard about an unconfirmed transaction was when you could send bitcoins with no fees
