Troy Torrence asked 5 days ago

I was reluctant to ask a question before exhausting all of my resources but i am unsure which way to go at this point. I have two small transactions that are stuck in the pending status on my blockchain wallet. One of which has been pending for nearly 40 hours at this point. From all of the research i have done, there was a fee large enough with the transaction to be mined.My questions are, what can i do at this point to push through the transaction? I have been trying to use viabtc but keep getting the same message to try again later. Also, how do i manually adjust the fee\’s in blockchain so this does not happen again. Luckily it was a small $ amount.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey
first of all I’m glad to see it was confirmed. In order to avoid this next time here are two little known tips:

  1. Use electrum as your wallet. It’s not easy to use but it has a RBF (replace by fee) feature which is pretty handy in these situations.
  2. ViaBTC accepts only 100 submissions each hour on a first come first serve basis. So just make sure to submit yours in the beginning of the hour and you’ll be good.

Good luck!
