I have an issue that's probably happened lots of people already, so I'm really sorry for asking the same question. My transaction is stuck since 28.12.2017 already. I've accidentally paid not enough fee to ever get it confirmed. I wanted to pay 0.0001BTC but I've paid a total fee of 0.00001BTC. So not even a transaction accelerator can help me out with this problem anymore. My question is now, what can I do to get my bitcoins back or even get it ever confiormed?

Best regards,


  • What wallet did you sent them to and are you at the receiving adress aswell? – Rutger Versteegden Jan 16 '18 at 16:27
  • Yeah, I am also the receiving adress. I sent it to a Shop wallet. – Sazer T. Jan 16 '18 at 16:29
  • What Accelerator did you try and what wallet did you send it from? – rick Jan 16 '18 at 17:07
  • I've used the accelerator from viabtc and instantbt. I'm using the Bitcoin Core Wallet for all my transactions. – Sazer T. Jan 16 '18 at 17:42

try use abandontransaction "Your transaction ID here" and then restart it with -rescan flag

and then add your transaction fees higher (NOTE: ONLY WORKS IF TRANSACTION IS NOT IN THE BLOCKCHAIN)
