Yes, it is the same to me. My deposit transaction ID is not found on bitaps:
It has been stuck for 36 hours now.
For some unknown reasons, in my last trades, deposit transactions have taken long to be confirmed on blockchain.
v1.3.7 on Ubuntu
If you are waiting for the initial trade to start, it is because if your fee is low you keep getting bumped back in the transactions because the miners want to make as much fees as possible. If the click on the first green link next to the transaction ID it open the blockchain explorer and you can see where you are in the stack. I waited like 14 hours once…
Sorry to insist in this topic, but I think it is not a problem with congested mempool. My transaction which has been stuck for 72 hours now, is still pending since deposit transaction is “not found” on bitaps:
As far as I know, not found is different than unconfirmed, which signals a problem with fees.
There must be an additional problem.
Same bug again. This morning a new ID transaction deposit is “not found” on explorer:
There is something wrong with transaction deposits ID’s.
I have opened a ticket and supposedly the trade will have to be cancelled.
Just reporting that this time, the “not found” transaction deposit has turned into “unconfirmed” a few minutes ago. That means that it is stuck in the mempool because of low fees. It will be confirmed in due time.
What I do not understand is the reason for appearing “not found” for almost three hours. I would appreciate any comments on this matter.
The reason it comes up as “not found” is that it failed to broadcast. The deposit transaction was properly formed by the client but failed to broadcast to the bitcoin network and therefore it wont be in the mempool. After a certain period of time it gets rebroadcasted or the the client’s connection is reestablished and the transaction successfully broadcasts. this can happen for numerous reasons, a good way to try and force a stuck tx “not found” is to restart Bisq!
But this will happen and it really depends on your tor connection, bisq network connection etc. Could also be related to the OS you use and it have worse performance then another. Personally I rarely if ever get that on Ubuntu, my internet connection is also really good.
Thanks a lot Bayernator. Now I know a way to force a stuck tx, that is restarting Bisq.
But now I have to report that after accepting mediator suggestion and closing the ticket, the locked funds are still locked. Perhaps mediator forgot to unlock them when closing ticket?
Mediator can’t lock or unlock BTC. Your peer must not be confirming the suggestion. https://bisq.wiki/Dispute_resolution
If your peer still doesn’t release BTC, you have 10 or 20 days (alt or fiat) to request arbitration. You’ll need to reject mediator’s suggestion to do that, you are always on time to reject mediation request.
I understand that it’s frustrating but i wouldn’t necessarily blame Bisq for this. When the trade was taken the miner fee that was paid must have been low and fees increased afterwards making it so the transaction would not go through! It looks like the mempool may get cleared this weekend (unsure). Hopefully it does so that your transaction gets mined.
It may be possible to make a CPFP transaction and increase the fee to get your tx through.
