I'm using kryptokit to send my funds. I sent a transaction at about 10pm last night and here it is 10+ hrs later still unconfirmed. Is there a way to cancel it that's easy?

Your transaction is non-standard because one output is only 379 satoshi, and therefore below the dust threshold of 546 satoshi. Most nodes don't relay non-standard transactions, and most mining pools do not include them in blocks.

You might want to consider recreating the transaction and folding this sixth of a dollar cent into the transaction fee instead. In the essence, you'd create a doublespend spending the same inputs but redeclaring the outputs. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how you would be doing that with kryptokit.

The easiest would probably be to import the originating address to another wallet and send a new transaction with that.

  • Will the transaction time out and come back to my wallet.If not what software do I need or whatever to recreate another transaction – John Apr 12 '16 at 18:45
  • @John: Sorry, I'm not familiar with kryptokit. You could import the address to another Bitcoin wallet though, and try to send it from there again. – Murch Apr 12 '16 at 18:52
