get rid of the unconfirmed txn in your wallet and then send all of your coins to another address with a really high fee... hope for the best.....maybe your new txn will have preference on the network and get confirmed.... leaving the old one in never never land until it dies

Those who hold and those who are without property have ever formed distinct interests in society

Good guide.... however I don't use core.... and blockchain just retries it automatically.

I have been hacked. I have changed my password. I will not trade unless i give a signed message. I have not sebt any messages or threads since the 6th of July. Be cautious when trading with anyone from this account. I will not be trading until the 20th of the following month

Ultimate way to delete your forever unconfirmed transactions


  • Backup your wallet just in case
  • Download Pywallet
  • Run './pywallet.py --web'
  • Go to http://localhost:8989 in your browser
  • Fill the Delete form like this:

    • Wallet Directory: /your/wallet/directory
    • Wallet Filename: yourwalletfilename
    • Key: all
    • Type: leave 'Transaction'

Hey,

I just try to follow this instruction... but got problems.

I downloaded pywallet and run pywallet.py --web. If I run it it wants to download a file called "pywallet.py" which I did...
But what to do now?

If I type in http://localhost:8989 in my brower I just get a message that it is not available.

Does my wallet needs to be open at the time I do this?

I did a transaction earlier with 0 transaction fee. It was unconfirmed for a long time. I wanted to cancel it. I didn't find this tutorial at that time. This is a great guide, every other bitcoin user needs to know. Do pywallet has the feature to remove an address from a wallet file?

how about just start core with -zapwallettxes ? the unconfirmed tx will be gone.

My unconfirmed transaction was 100% restored after opening bitcoin-qt with the following command...
Code:
"C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe" -zapwallettxes

There was no need to install any additional programs. The functionality is built into bitcoin-qt.

For the uninitiated, here's how to run the command above on Windows... (note: this will only work for bitcoin-qt v9+)
  • Open your Bitcoin Core wallet (bitcoin-qt.exe).
  • Make a backup of your wallet, just in case [File > Backup Wallet].
  • Close Bitcoin-qt (don't just minimise it, close it).
  • Make a new shortcut or copy your existing bitcoin-qt shortcut.
  • Right-click the new copy of the shortcut and choose Properties.
  • Add " -zapwallettxes" (with a space and without quotes) to the end of the existing 'Target' field (see the command above - your path may be different, so just leave your path as it is).
  • Click OK to save and close the properties window.
  • You can now open your Bitcoin Core wallet using this new shortcut. After it opens, you should see "rescanning network XX%".
  • Done! Your unconfirmed bitcoin should now appear in the balance area.
  • Close your wallet.
  • Delete the shortcut you just created to prevent accidentally using it again.
  • Open your wallet using the original shortcut.

The lesson: Don't be a potato and send your transactions with zero fees!

If I have missed something, please let me know.

Actually the easiest way on Windows (assuming Bitcoin is installed in default location) can be boiled down to simply:

  • Backup Wallet (always before messing with your wallet)
  • Start->Run->type "cmd" -> hit enter, a black command prompt window should appear
  • Type
Code:
"C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe" -zapwallettxes
    in the window and hit enter

No need to mess with shortcuts or anything, this will launch the GUI one time using the -zapwallettxes flag which is what you want in this case.

Just writing to say thanks, I have just got back over 0.03 from numourous transactions that i had where i had not paid enough of a fee so they were just sitting there with no confirmations.

The above method of doing through command prompt works super easy.

Once again, THANK YOU

Sorry for the bump but are you guys aware of the fact that people might scam with that method? A lot of people do not know that it is possible to "delete" unconfirmed transactions, so they might give the goods or whatever before it gets confirmed. Or do I miss something here?
