I haven't found anyone having this problem. I setup Dwarfpool to payout to my exchange wallet. The payment never arrived. Here is my transaction ID:


And the display on a block explorer:

Timestamp: 0    Timestamp [UCT]: N/A    Age [y:d:h:m:s]:

  • Can you post the transaction ID / hash. Also, to which exchange did you send it?

  • I can confirm it's in the tx pool but it hasn't been mined. Nothing obvious as to why it's not been picked up (over a day old). There is another tx with the exact same age which makes me wonder if they are trying to spend the same inputs or something. You should contact the exchange I think because it looks like it's going to timeout/drop from the tx pool.

  • Has thus happen before? I have seen any issuse like this one. The funds will be returned to the starting wallet? It was a cash out from a mining pool Jun 22, 2019 at 7:26
  • If you sent from the exchange, it shouldn't matter how it got deposited to the exchange. As I said, contact them, with as much detail as possible. It will get dropped from the tx pool if not mined. Max time in the tx pool is 3 days then it gets dropped. Funds reappear back in the senders wallet. But definitely contact them and show it's in the pool, unmined: xmrchain.net/txpool

You need to take this up with the pool that sent your transaction and prove the tx was never mined.

You can check various nodes (https://moneroworld.com/#nodes), via the RPC interface, to prove the tx has not been mined by running the following from the command-line:

curl -X POST http://node.moneroworld.com:18089/get_transactions -d '{"txs_hashes":["0a5e6ba7332571b2e4258ec9e46d88307d26aaf0e7250812ec2b64b571b93a2c"]}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json'

For which you will get output like:

  "missed_tx": ["0a5e6ba7332571b2e4258ec9e46d88307d26aaf0e7250812ec2b64b571b93a2c"],
  "status": "OK",
  "untrusted": false

Which shows the tx is missing (missed_tx).

You can also prove it is not even waiting to be mined by showing that the tx is not even in the networks tx pool by running:

curl -X POST http://node.moneroworld.com:18089/get_transaction_pool | grep 0a5e6ba7332571b2e4258ec9e46d88307d26aaf0e7250812ec2b64b571b93a2c

Which will give no results.

Therefore, the pool needs to credit back your account.

  • Also block time is 7 days? I heard 3 but it's well over that. 7 seems to be what most older posts say. Jun 25, 2019 at 19:40
  • The tx pool holds transactions for up to 3 days. Or if the tx is in an alternative block (orphaned), 7 days.
