I have an unconfirmed transaction that has been sitting there for 6 days now. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.




  • Hi there, the difference here is that I withdrew my coins through an exchange. Their support is terrible and hence I was hoping I can get some assistance here.

You can probably use CPFP to add a massive fee and get it mined. Essentially, you spend the unconfirmed transaction in another transaction (to yourself for example) and just use a really big fee. Eventually a miner will want to mine both to get the fees.


It seems the fee used is 61sat/B, but now the regular fee is 301sat/B and priority is 317sat/B. So you have to wait until a miner takes your transaction and confirm. I have faced this issue many times and waited for days and weeks to get a single confirmation.

If you are in a hurry then try any tx-accelerator like viaBTC or pushtx.

Also, you can check the mempool to see how long it may take to confirm your transaction.

Mempool state by fee level

  • Manu, can I use tx-accelerators if the transfer was done via an exchange not my own wallet?

  • You only need a transaction ID. But use free accelerators, I would recommend you to wait for few more days. Be patient!!, it will be confirmed soon :) Commented Dec 19, 2017 at 5:48
  • Lol I've been waiting for 6 days. But ok I will take your advice and wait a couple more days. Thank you Manu.
