This is my first time using bitcoin and I've had a transaction stuck for over 12 hours. Any help getting confirmed would be appreciated.


  • Your transaction did not include a transaction fee. It will probably take days until it is confirmed or may never be. This can be fixed creating another transaction that spends the same money, but includes a transaction fee. Which wallet did you use?

I ran bitcoind with the --zapwallettxes flag and recovered the coins. Thankyou for the help
