Does anybody know what this code means? error: {u'message': u'64: dust', u'code': -26} I've managed to send bitcoins once, same settings, but it only worked once. Any help is welcome, thanks!

  • Is it possible that the amount you were trying to send is below 5430 satoshi? That would be considered dust, and perhaps electrum would not send a transaction with dust. You might need to add more information for us to give you a better answer. – Murch Jan 18 '15 at 13:10
  • I think that was the problem, i have send a higher amount and it worked. The "dust" i was trying to send was to test my wallet since i am new in this bitcoin revolution. Thank you very much for this fast reply and the solution! Best regards! – gun28 Jan 18 '15 at 13:26
  • Cool, glad I could help. I had been researching meanwhile and found a little more about your error. See my answer below. – Murch Jan 18 '15 at 13:31

According to another question about an Electrum error message the error message is just passed along by Electrum and originally was generated in BitcoinQt:

According to rpcprotocol.h in the source code error -26 has the following meaning:

 RPC_VERIFY_REJECTED = -26, //! Transaction or block was rejected by network rules

Guessing from the word "dust" appearing in the message, was the amount you were trying to send below 5430 satoshi? That would be considered dust, and perhaps electrum would not send a transaction with dust.
