I'm new in the Bitcoin World. Today I did my second transaction for just 0.005 BTC but 2 hours after, it's unconfirmed yet. The transaction is in the block 320385 and it is orphaned. I saw the statistics for orphaned block in blockchain.info and today are 10 orphaned blocks and this is a high value according the graphic.

My cuestion is:

1.- How much time will my transaction to be included in other block?.

2.- What happened on september 13, 2014?, Why are there 10 orphaned blocks?

Thanks

Today I did my second transaction for just 0.005 BTC but 2 hours after, it's unconfirmed yet. The transaction is in the block 320385 and it is orphaned.

Is it in a block, or is it unconfirmed?

block 320385

Which block 320385? This one or this one?

today are 10 orphaned blocks and this is a high value according the graphic.

Huh, that's pretty odd. Screenshot for posterity:

Blockchain mistakenly thinks that blocks are orphaned

It's unusual for blockchain.info to be wrong, but it definitely is in this case. This is the best chain that my client can find:

2014-09-13 01:59:04.460 UpdateTip: new best=000000000000000000652d48e212a9fdb16ce57d7097b76200a2fe5e9cd643fe  height=320406  log2_work=80.639033  tx=46574398  date=2014-09-13 01:56:16 progress=0.999993

The chain that blockchain.info thinks is invalid appears valid to my client. They'll probably have it sorted out in a few hours.

  • Can exists two blocks with the same number? I think no, both links point to the same block: 320385 (orphaned block) – Miguel Sep 13 '14 at 2:25
  • 3 hours and 30 mins and the tx is unconfirmed yet. – Miguel Sep 13 '14 at 2:29
  • Now the orphaned blocks rise up to 27. Is this normal? – Miguel Sep 13 '14 at 3:08

    Can exists two blocks with the same number Yes. – Nick ODell Sep 13 '14 at 3:16
  • Correction: 'It's NOT unusual for blockchain.info to be wrong'. It's been horrible for months at least. – Jannes Sep 13 '14 at 3:34
