Hi guys,

I transferred 1 bitcoin from my "spending wallet" to my newly created "secure bank wallet" to test that it got there properly, and I did so without paying any transaction fee.

In my "sent wallet" I can see ~10'000 confirmations and can also see from the block explorer that the transaction is registered there. However, it still hasn't reached my other wallet.

I have tried with several version of the bitcoin client, and I have downloaded all available blocks (currently ~160'000 with my transaction being in the 140'000s.)

Is this an expected delay for a transaction without a fee or is there any other explanation?

Link to the block explorer for the transaction:

Thanks for the help, cheers

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

get your bitcoin client running with the -rescan option using the wallet that holds the missing transaction address and you might see it.
