My question may not be very clear since I’m not really an expert in bitcoin and its technology. But in my possession I have just a wallet.dat files with an unconfirmed transaction on it.

I followed a procedure of spending the unconfirmed Bitcoin from the wallet.dat wallet into a new blockchain wallet address.

At this level I have linked the wallet.dat with my bitcoin core, and even checked the wallet.dat balance on bitref and it shows the bitcoins is unspent but unconfirmed.

This is where I’m confused

  • available balance on my Bitcoin core is 0.00000 and blocks not yet fully syncd.
  • I tried using the JSON process of spending the bitcoins into a new blockchain wallet, after putting all I was asked in the process I got what you will see below.

E2 -> Error Parse error on line ‘1’ parse error on line^ Expecting‘STRING’, ‘NUMBER’, ‘NULL’, ‘TRUE’, ‘FALSE’ ‘{‘, ‘[‘, got ‘undefined

And left me with no option than OK. My bitcoin core version is

I don’t know if my question does makes sense but that’s what I’m facing please some should help me

  • You've sent funds to a Bitcoin Core receiving address and then discovered that Bitcoin Core is NOT the wallet that you really want to use. Either because it takes a better part of a week to sync the blockchain or you just don't like the wallet. You don't want to wait for a full synchronization of the blockchain before transferring your funds Here is the procedure in a nutshell: Install a new bitcoin wallet (like BitPay) Open Bitcoin Core Open the debug console inside Bitcoin Core Gather some information Create a raw transaction Sign the raw transaction Broadcast the raw transaction
