I have -1 confirmations for an inbound transaction on my Electrum wallet. What does is it mean to have -1 confirmations?

1 Answer 1


It is a known bug, just restart the client and/or switch to another server in the Network window (green dot in the bottom right).

If this doesn't fix the 'Unverified -1 confirmation error' try deleting the block_headers folder on your Electrum directory -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=330626.msg5292794#msg5292794

  • If you could give a link to the bug report, that would be very helpful. Jul 8, 2014 at 18:11
  • Added another possible fix and a link to one of the reports.
