My entire balance in MultiBit HD appears as "unconfirmed". MultiBit HD does not allow me to send them to another address, so they are "stuck". When I click on the individual transactions under "Payments", the pop-up window says "Unknown transaction status". These transactions are more than a year old, and they seem to exist and be completely valid on blockchain.info (see for example this transaction.

I have already tried the "Repair wallet" option, but it has no effect. I have also tried using accelerators as described in this question but also without effect. Likewise this question is not helpful since it is about the generel speed of confirmations - my problem is related to MultiBit HD where my balance is unconfirmed even though the transations are confirmed on blockchain.info.

How can I get my bitcoins back?

  • Not the same: that question is about "speeding up" the confirmation. My question is more related to MultiBit HD, where the transactions remain unconfirmed, whereas they appear confirmed on blockchain.info.

    You may want to edit your question to and rename it to something like "Multibit shows confirmed transactions as unconfirmed". This forum gets a lot of "Help! My transaction is unconfirmed" questions, and questions with titles like yours are almost immediately marked as duplicates. Making it stick out as a different problem will attract more and better answers.

Multibit HD is end of life software so you should migrate to Electrum. The MultibitHD developers themselves advised users to do that. Here's a detailed guide.
