I bought a couple of bitcoin in 2012 where they languished on my successive Mac Book Pros in a Bitcoin-QT v0.6.2.2 wallet. I now realise they are worth - ahem - something! The wallet still fires up even though it is still calls itself a beta wallet and so I thought I would first try to send my lovely bitcoin to a new and glossy Exodus wallet.
Now being completely new to this I got my receive address for my Exodus Wallet and tried sending 0.1 BTC to my Exodus wallet. Eventually (maybe 5 hours later) it showed it had arrived but with zero confirmations. This first transaction still shows with 0.1 BTC "Pending" in the Exodus Wallet (sent Friday Dec 1st 10.04.10 PM).
I realised I had not included any fee on this first send but I didn't see anything I could do about that.
Anyway I then sent the balance of BTC in my Bitcoin-QT wallet, but this time included a 0.0004 BTC fee to the same address. But, 34 hours later it does not even show it having arrived at the Exodus wallet.
Now I really do not know what to do. I assume if I leave my Bitcoin-QT wallet up and running it will keep broadcasting the transactions and so they may never disappear. So I have quit the wallet. But suppose I leave it for a few days. If I fire up the wallet then I assume it will broadcast again and I will be back in the same situation? I could start it up offline and restore from a backup I did just prior to sending the first transaction - I guess that would cut out the re-broadcasts. Would that be the thing to do?
The Bitcoin wallet reports that the Transaction Ids are:
