I sent a transaction on a small altcoin, and running listtransactions an hour later or so says -1 confirmations. It is forked from Bitcoin Core 0.8 and barely modified. What does this mean?

1 Answer 1


-1 means not in local mempool and not in a block

  • I ended up resolving this by running a -rescan, which made the transaction disappear from the mempool, which would imply that it was ONLY in the local mempool...so are you sure about this? Jun 13, 2017 at 16:45
