I sent 0.1 BTC to an exchange 3 days ago but it is still not deposited and showing as unconfirmed in the web interface. It was sent during network overload period which only has gotten worse since. I tried many times to send it from Mycelium wallet but I got "Unable to broadcast" error until I increased fee to ~741sats/byte. It took a few hours or so to get 6 confirmations and it is showing as confirmed in mycelium since then. The problem is that the blockchain.info shows it as unconfirmed 3 days after. How can it be unconfirmed and have 283 confirmations? Why does this happen and what can I do? The received keeps linking to the below saying it's unconfirmed.

Blockchain.info is unreliable when it comes to double spends. Your sending address 1Mf8eeHL9dCcWn74ZQFEXVXHnmYKPjS2rR has "Final Balance -0.1 BTC", which is of course not possible.

The transaction above will never confirm. The inputs are used already in this transaction: a61d754f4b6f13c19b368d9a78638d2d6d73e27e9b4062a1950e271baa507889, sending the funds to the same address as the first transaction.

If the exchange shows the first (unconfirmed) transaction but not the second (confirmed 0.0985754 BTC) transaction, you should contact the exchange. It looks like their system didn't handle the double spend correctly, and ignored the confirmed transaction because of that.

Thanks for your repy. I sent the exchange a third ticket but I have a feeling they might just reply with another screenshot with an arrow pointing to unconfirmed text and close the ticket again like they did the last time.

The only thing after that I can think of to do is send a letter to their business address in the UK demanding the funds. If that fails I have no idea how one might try to explain to the small claims court that the transaction was received.
