I’ve read various threads on how to override a stuck, unconfirmed transaction. But I’d like to hear from the smart people of this forum on the exact, proven (if there was ever a precedent for my situation), step-by-step method to fix this problem of mine, rather than relying on a shady bitcointalk thread. I’d say it’s going on about 6 days that it’s still saying unconfirmed.
I sent over half of my MAID - from two different BTC addresses - into a new address, for extra security ultimately. And I didn’t have much BTC in those two Omniwallet BTC addresses to pay for the miner fee. So I did something like 0.0002184 custom fee for the first BTC address, and 0.0001365 custom fee for the second BTC address. The thing is, Omni only sends like 0.00000546-ish BTC (or, half that?) in order to send the MAID to a new address in the first place, so it’s stumping me as to how such a small amount of BTC would even require that much of a miner fee.
Should I continue waiting-out the confirmations? Or try someone’s method that they might kindly lay out for me as a reply in this thread?
This is just me being selfish, but I really think Omniwallet should warn people to not set too low of a fee, or just flat out say that it’s highly recommended that you make sure you have enough BTC for the non-custom-setting options. If only because, I figured it wouldn’t take this long considering that it’s barely any BTC. (But maybe I incorrectly assumed/recalled/remembered that that is[n’t] how the Bitcoin blockchain works.)
