I had 0.006btc and sent out 0.0059 with a 0.0001 tx fee to create a 0.00 balance. The 0.006 was built with 6 0.001 transactions.

The transaction is now 7 hours STILL awaiting confirmation.

please explain how to get confirmed transaction and from the following....

>Electrum-0.35-Build1.exe history

pending   62d4b6 ...  -0.006000   -0.000000
# balance:  -1.73472347598e-18

I think there are some rounding errors somewhere within the code.

and the thing is the recipient can see the transaction, it's just sitting at 0.0059 with 0 confirmed. blockexplorer doesn't even see the tx id...

That's because it's been broadcasted but not yet included in a block. It probably has a low priority.

because of the 0.0001 tx fee, not 0.0005?


it has now finally cleared - still have the negative balance though. I didn't think that was possible.

>Electrum-0.35-Build1.exe history

2012-02-04 20:07:04   62d4b6...f  -0.006000   -0.000000
# balance:  -1.73472347598e-18

only took nine hours to confirm.

larger transactions have higher priority, and transactions with older inputs have higher priority. My guess is after 9 hours inputs were old enough someone would actually process it.

indeed, the command-line interface interface displays amounts with floating point numbers; thanks for spotting it, I will fix it.

Just the display was floats, right? I hope they aren't being stored as floats in the backend
