I transferred 10 btc from my Coinbase acct to my wallet. The transaction appears twice in my wallet, one went right through and confirmed within minutes, the other has 0 confirmations (after 2 weeks), and the transaction ID does not show up on blockchain. So I got my bitcoins, but now I have this "phantom" unconfirmed transaction in my wallet. How do I get rid if it?

The command line option is -zapwallettxes

This will clear unconfirmed transactions from your wallet.

See https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin


Try doing a rescan. start the client with -rescan

That parameter will tell the software to scan the block chain for missing wallet transactions.

    However, this will not help to get rid of transactions that are already there. May 12, 2014 at 13:48
