Hi all
Yesterday I made a Low-priority transaction of roughly 0.003 BTC from my BTC.com Wallet to my NiceHash wallet
I has been more than 12 hours already and the transaction is showing on the receiving end (NiceHash) as pending ever since I made it (Roughly about 10 minutes after I pressed send)
So are the transaction lost ?
If not is there is anyway I can know when it will be confirmed?

Sorry if this thread shouldn't be here

There are no possibilities to transaction bitcoins stuck forever. For the meantime yes but eventually will go through and the time regarding it depends on different cases I suppose. There are several options for confirming stuck transactions:

For both the recipient and the sender of the transaction, you can:

Wait for the transaction to confirm
Wait for the network to "forget" about the transaction
Ask a miner to confirm it for you

For the sender of a transaction, you can also:

Attempt a Replace-By-Fee double spend transaction
If you have a change output, you can attempt a Child-Pays-For-Parent transaction
For the recipient of a transaction, you can also:
Attempt a Child-Pays-For-Parent transaction

I really really appreciate your reply and help
Thank you so much
I should have updated this much earlier
but here is what happened
I contacted BTC.com's Support and they informed me that the transaction should either be confirmed within a week maximum or else it will be dropped by the network
Which was a relive to read because I was estimating that it could take about 28 days
I now know the drill but got really nervous as it was my very first transaction
Thanks again
