I am quite new to the Bitcoin world. About 1 BTC was sent from my Electrum wallet to my Coinomi wallet, with 0.5 mBTC per kB commission, and it remained unconfirmed for about 50-60 hours. Then the transaction was rejected.

Yet the amount is still reflected as "unconfirmed" in my wallet. Two questions: 1. What can I do about the "unconfirmed" amount. 2. What did I do wrong and why it was rejected after all? Please help

  • seems to be a blockchain fork

Bitcoin network is heavily loaded with thousands transactions staying unconfirmed for a long time, your funds are totally safe with Coinomi. Your transaction will eventually get confirmed or it will be "discarded" by the blockchain network and your funds will be back in your wallet. Unfortunatelly, there is nothing we can do to unstuck your tx. To avoid such issues in the future you could increase the default fees for Bitcoin from Settings -> Transaction Fees.

You could also use a transaction accelerator such as https://www.viabtc.com/tools/txaccelerator/ or https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2204426.0

    Thanks, however currently the issue is that the transaction has been rejected but my funds are still (24 hours after the rejection) shown as an "unconfirmed" transaction in my Electrum Wallet. I understand that now it is not an issue of Coinomi wallet yet I have no idea how long it will take to regain the access to my funds.
