I was using an old Electrum wallet. I sweeped the wallet in a single transaction for which I had not turned on "dynamic wallet" (RBF) yet. The transaction is still unconfirmed after one week. I cannot create another transaction as the wallet is now empty and as I said, RBF had not been activated for the transaction.

I need help recovering my bitcoins, and I'm not finding instructions on how to unstuck the transaction. Could you please provide detailed instructions on how to retrieve my balance?

  • I'm sorry that your question was closed at first. We get about a dozen questions about unconfirmed questions every day most of which are just the generic simple case. You have an edge case here, which we haven't properly covered yet, so I've edited your post to include the relevant information and reopened it. – Murch May 22 '17 at 21:42
  • This describes a method that would probably work. Please be sure to create a backup before trying it. steemit.com/bitcoin/@profitgenerator/… – Murch May 22 '17 at 21:49
  • that is too complicated. I guess my 125 dollars is lost forever. – david sherrill May 22 '17 at 22:08
  • As an alternative you could try to import your electrum wallet from the seed words on another device. The other device should not know about the transaction, so you should be able to create another to recover them. – Murch May 22 '17 at 22:21
  • nope the nonconfirmed transaction shows up on my android electrum as well. I will pay someone 10 bucks to get this done. – david sherrill May 22 '17 at 22:37
