Hi
As part of my life as Dave Bitcoin at walletrecoveryservices, I receive a variety of strange requests. Here is one::::

I have received a bitcoin-qt wallet from a client, that appears to show an unconfirmed transaction credit from the 2nd of December 2013, for 10 BTC.
You can see it at
http://imgur.com/RxcwT32

The transaction id is
386d286d238836f2ac3c3a2e9b2afca403663d7a50c386696eef5a02c36eeeef
and the amount is
10.00292743

I offer a bounty of 20% of the amount (ie 2 btc) to whoever can first make this payment confirm. (my client will benefit, I will benefit, and one of you will benefit Smiley

Now, I can't find this transaction on the blockchain, so presumably it either never existed, or it was included in a block that was gazumped. However, if the source data for this transaction were to be located, and replayed into the network, could it then be included in the blockchain? Does anyone keep records of transactions that were broadcast, but never made it into the 'longest' blockchain? Did something funny happen to the bitcoin network in early December 2013? Is this an example of transaction malleability?

There is also the distinct possibility that this wallet is actually a litecoin wallet, or dogecoin, or whatever. (is there any way of telling, from the wallet.dat file?) Or maybe the wallet was operating on testnet?

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Cheers
Dave

If it shows the transaction ID, then the transaction details should be in the wallet also(?)

go to help/debug window/console
type:
gettransaction 386d286d238836f2ac3c3a2e9b2afca403663d7a50c386696eef5a02c36eeeef

getrawtransaction 386d286d238836f2ac3c3a2e9b2afca403663d7a50c386696eef5a02c36eeeef

getrawtransaction 386d286d238836f2ac3c3a2e9b2afca403663d7a50c386696eef5a02c36eeeef 1

If these show anything, try to resend it https://coinb.in/send-raw-transaction.html , but I think the inputs of that transaction were already used up by some other newer tx.

Thanks for that, danieleff. Excellent idea. I've got the raw transaction data, and tried to replay it. I get a message back (from https://blockchain.info/pushtx ) saying
Unable To find all tx inputs: [4271092bda6c7e304403eba4411b966e2d4ce7898d2db32fec3b4058cd949bdb]

So I guess it isn't a bitcoin transaction - or at least not one that contains any sensible data. It might still be an alt-coin transaction, I suppose. (although I've checked a couple, and not found the transaction id, so far)
Cheers

just start a StableCoin daemon or wallet. if you have the hex-encoded data for your transaction (getrawtransaction 386d286d238836f2ac3c3a2e9b2afca403663d7a50c386696eef5a02c36eeeef), send it to the network:
sendrawtransaction <hex string>

i think you dont have to wait the full sync, just wait for some connection, and send the transacion.
or send me the hex-encoded data, i can broadcast to the stablecoin network.

Hey, Awesome. thanks!
(although I'm rather gutted that they weren't bitcoins  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes )
Shall I send you the 20% bounty (or is the offer of a few StableCoins pointless?)

The real question is, what kind of "client" sends you a supposed BTC wallet and it turns out to be StableCoin instead. What's that about?

anyway, this transaction already confirmed:
http://altexplorer.net/tx/386d286d238836f2ac3c3a2e9b2afca403663d7a50c386696eef5a02c36eeeef

so try this wallet.dat file with stablecoin qt wallet app
