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,

  • I've used the accelerator from viabtc and instantbt. I'm using the Bitcoin Core Wallet for all my transactions.

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)
