I use the Blockchain.info receive payments API. It's all working nice and good, but now I have a payment that doesn't reach my adress. It is unconfirmed for almost 24 hours.

Also, the payment doesn't show in Bitcoin-QT (also not as unconfirmed)

You can see here: https://blockchain.info/address/1J2SpT8wBUsVhP6MBtc5sqJkUMgdfHPSZ4

Normally Blockchain.info pays the miner fee, so I should receive them very quickly.

Are my bitcoins lost in the abyss?


Seems the payment got through after all. Weird, it took more than 24 hours.

So, just wait and keep waiting, in the end, it's all gonna be alright.

  • In any case, if any payment is unconfirmed for any reason (including being added to a block that gets reorganized away), the bitcoins are not lost: they are still in the sending wallet (though a rescan may be needed if the wallet doesn't realize). Only a valid tx included in the blockchain can move bitcoins from one address to another. – user36303 Jun 11 '16 at 8:05
