was the fee not high enough? i have never had an issue with fees using the recommended amount that bitcoin core suggests before but now this one, for some reason is just sitting there unconfirmed.
It looks like the fee is too low.
The fee (the difference between the input amount and output amount) is only 0.00001329 BTC - about an order of magnitude too low at the time of writing.
Most modern wallet software should propose sensible fees by default. Bitcoin Core started calculating fees dynamically in release 0.10. Could you perhaps be using an old version?
