My sent Bitcoin transaction is pending

This article explains what to do if you just sent Bitcoin transaction from Ledger Live and it is still pending.

Bitcoin transaction is pending

If you just sent the transaction and it shows as not confirmed and pending, then it is normal.


It takes some time for the transactions to get confirmed on the blockchain and depending on the fees you selected, it may take from 1 minute to several hours. 

Network congestion also has a big impact on how long you need to wait. If many people are doing transactions right now, it will increase the waiting time.

What should I do if my transaction is pending?

If you just made the transaction, please be patient and wait for 2-3 hours and clear cache in Ledger Live and check the status again.

If it stays not confirmed for more than 3 hours, it is possible you set up too low network fees during the sending process. Learn more about network fees.

You can speed up the transaction by using a Ledger device and Electrum wallet.
