Hi, could you help me too?

I have the same problem and I do not know what to do. I'm worried about losing my BTC's.

I transferred from my wallet on Hashnest to my wallet on an Exchange once 0.2 btc. But when i go to transaction id in the section height it says removed-doublespending.

What I have to do?

Thanks.

You should start by linking us your transaction ID.

by the looks of it it sounds to me that your service provider ( in this case HashNest), double-spended your transaction somewhere else, causing yours to fail?

Here's some more information about what double spending really is, https://www.bitcoin.com/info/what-is-bitcoin-double-spending

Also, alot of ponzi schemes tend to double spend aswell, so that it looks like they're paying out, ( hashnest).

Hi,

Noob question.... Any idea when does the money get reversed incase of Removed / DoubleSpending?

I made a transaction from my wallet A to B - https://btc.com/5883a9a78458935af3378ed42f12eceb9c733a1e351458966055fe0975c41b7d on 02 Jan 18 and before this got confirmed I made a transaction from B to C https://btc.com/d3b03a37708a114c0133c9e081afb1ce6fa2aa56a3c858b425c0cc431c150314 on 04 Jan 18 as I already had some BTC in Wallet B.... Now both are somehow stuck for the past 8-10 days both show Removed / Doublespending... but where are the BTC? or in when will they eventually reach?

Would appreciate any insights / help on this. Thanks!

Noob question.... Any idea when does the money get reversed incase of Removed / DoubleSpending?

Incase of a service provider (e.g. web wallet, .. ) double spending a transactions of yours this is because of one of the two reasons:
1) Its a pretty bad service provider who i) didn't calculate fees enough to get the transaction through in an appropiate amount of time and ii) doesn't keep track of his wallet how he should.
In this case you should contact your wallet provider and provide them the transaction ID's which has been double spent. They are the only one able to help you.

2) You are being scammed. He wanted to give you the impression of 'normal' payouts, but double spent them to his/their own wallet. You won't get your money back in this case.

In both cases i would avoid such a service. You should switch to a wallet which give you the full control (e.g. electrum[1]).


Now both are somehow stuck for the past 8-10 days both show Removed / Doublespending... but where are the BTC? or in when will they eventually reach?

If the transactions show as double-spent they won't get through, ever.

Thank you for responding bob. Actually both wallets (A & B) are mine (blockchain.info mobile apps on different phones)

Wallet A started with 2 BTC

Wallet A first sent 1 BTC to Wallet B (which started off with 0 BTC) on 02 Jan '18 and it got confirmed in an hour or so. Now Wallet B has confirmed 2 BTC

Wallet A then sent 1.27 BTC to Wallet B on 02 Jan '18 ... this I guess was still not confirmed.. no idea why.

Wallet B was now showing 2.27 BTC, so I sent 0.27 BTC to Wallet C on 04 Jan '18 (2 days after the 1.27 from A to B) and this too got stuck. After loads of reading I finally found out that both are flagged with Removed / Doubles Spending.

So there was no double spending actually. I guess the A to B transfer of 1.27 got flagged as Removed / Double Spending as soon as I transferred 0.27 BTC from B to C and everything came to a grinding halt. I just assumed that the 0.27 will come out of the 1 confirmed BTC in my wallet B. But the App wanted to pull it out of the unconfirmed 1.27.

ANY help would be super appreciated. Thanks.
