My transaction 5c8552a6744b3428d3ec4b5c0dd8b378ffeb4efd703b76a2b9d106250234d766 Has been unconfirmed for 10 days is there anything I can do to get it confirmed or do I just have to wait?


ViaBTC's Transaction Accelerator service can be used and you can pay with BTC but it will cost $100 or more.

You can wait for your transaction to be confirmed by Monday or you could have tried to spend unconfirmed UTXO if it was not cash app and some non custodial bitcoin wallet by following the below steps :

  1. Generate a new Bitcoin address in wallet.

  2. Make sure RBF (Replace By Fee) is ON. Send some or all of the unconfirmed balance (from the parent) to that address.

  3. Copy the new transaction ID (TX ID) and paste it in the 'Child TX ID' field here: https://cpfp.djbooth007.com/

  4. Enter the desired sats/vB amount. This can be determined by looking at the range of sat/vB in recently confirmed blocks or mempool stats on https://mempool.space

  5. Click 'Calculate Fee'

  6. Perform RBF (Replace By Fee) with the calculated result highlighted as 'Child to Pay'.

Other things you can use in future is RBF for every transaction and a change address if possible.

Some open source bitcoin wallets that support RBF:

Bitcoin Core

So it looks like your transaction does not have RBF (Replace-by-Fee) enabled, so you won't be able to bump your fee in a replacement transaction.

And there's no change output, so it seems you sent all your money in one go, so you wouldn't be able to do a CPFP (Child-Pays-for-Parent) transaction.

One suggestion is to use ViaBTC's Transaction Accelerator service. You'll need to pay them Bitcoin Cash, and they will include your transaction in the next block they mine. So, you'll lose money still by paying for the service, but your transaction would be confirmed sooner.

  • So what if I'm the recipient as well how would I do that?

  • I don't think cash app has such options being a custodial wallet so I have updated things in my answer: bitcoin.stackexchange.com/a/105327
