I'm using MultiBit and my wallet balance is showing as unconfirmed. The last transaction I made was a couple of months ago and seemed to be fine (https://blockchain.info/tx-index/25339607f1d5e3f36cd964554fd85c399c9359e58b169d6b7028b3627ef74f12).

When I try to make a payment with the unconfirmed funds I'm told "The error was insufficient money, missing XXX satoshis..."

I can see the correct balance in MultiBit but it is unconfirmed. The confirmed balance appears to be Zero. Any insight on what might have happened here or how I can fix it? I should say that I'm synced to the network and have 10 peers showing. Thanks for any help

My problem was easily solved, I simply had to Repair Wallet - an option in the Manage Wallet sidebar choice. All fixed!

  • Repair is not working. Neither is restore.

As Multibit is unsupported, you'll have to move your wallet to Electrum software using these instructions.



Had the same problem. Bought bitcoins. After that I had to wait for enough confirmations, but I'm a newbie so I didn't know that. The solution for me was to wait.

    I've downvoted this answer, because it suggests that the asker should wait for synchronization, however the asker states that his wallet is already synchronized.
