Transaction confusion
« on: April 27, 2017, 08:18:51 PM »
I hope someone can set me straight. I stared a wallet earlier this month with these two transactions.

-0.17546656 BTC    to address 177AnkPzv12EWThJEQq4iSDC3W5EZUtfPR [txid]

-0.009 BTC    to address 177AnkPzv12EWThJEQq4iSDC3W5EZUtfPR [txid]
They arrived all was well.

I sent out this (Mind you I know I screwed up the Transaction fee amount, that is where my problem begins)
Status: 0/unconfirmed, in memory pool
Date: 4/23/17 07:06 
To: 177AnkPzv12EWThJEQq4iSDC3W5EZUtfPR
 Debit: -0.13399774 BTC
Transaction fee: -0.00000226 BTC 
Net amount: -0.13400000 BTC
 Transaction ID: c8effd35b1f05b0ff74bb1946df9adfcba685495e9bb5f243f72c0755e38f182 
Transaction total size: 226 bytes
Output index: 1

I tried closing the wallet and re-placed the wallet.dat with the backed up wallet.dat  (the wallet backup before this was sent) to hopefully resend with a higher transaction fee (I am on OSX)
when my wallet re-synced. the unconfirmed transaction was no longer there but 2 other transactions appeared that I did not make.

I know I have synced my wallet a few times between my initial deposit and the one I sent, and those other 2 transactions where not there.
Real confused can some one explain?

If you are using Bitcoin Core wallet, this will happen from time to time as wallet doesn't calculate the appropriate fees for your transactions.

had this problem myself and the only thing you can do is wait for it to clear or be refunded back to wallet.

I waited almost 3 weeks for one transaction, before it was eventually refunded back to my wallet.

but at least I did get it back
