    What happens to unconfirmed bitcoin transactions ?

    If a bitcoin transaction remains unconfirmed for very long time, what will happen ?

    After x hours of it being unconfirmed it will be removed from the pool of unconfirmed transactions and will be given back to the person who sent it.

    x hours is dependent on the pool.

    But if somehow the funds already arrived to the receiver acc and he spend it, it will be double spend

    Funds will usually "arrive" at the receiver almost instantly. However, it doesn't mean he owns it. He can 100% send the funds he just received, but again, him sending it doesn't mean he owns it. If he does this, he has double spent. The double spent will get rejected. For you to own the funds, it needs to be confirmed.

    Thanks for your question, its my problem too !

    I got an alert on the transaction page with this title: Transaction invalid: some outputs that it attempts to spend have been already spent or are no longer valid.
    after 5 / 6 year transaction I made, this is the first time I've stuck into it
    I'm a virgin to this error!

    But this error has now disappeared and the transaction status is still unconfirmed!
