This thread will log TX time high score.

First off... I fully understand and acknowledge that being generous with tx fees will greatly reduce these wait times.  No "To fix it just..." posts please

Secondly... don't hand code any low fee transactions, that is bad.  Just use a normal bitcoin client, then log your transaction time.  Previously the highest I saw for something that wasn't tainted was 10 hours.

Rules:
  • Don't hand code low fee transactions, just the defaults please.
  • State the bitcoin client you used to send your transaction.
  • Post how long it has waited in the mempool at your time of posting.
  • Your TX URL @ TradeBlock.com since they list mempool times for unconfirmed txs.
  • your TX URL @ blockchain.info since they list mempool times for confirmed txs.
  • Post the transaction URL to claim victory.
  • Optional: Link imgur thumbnail (see here) showing txid and wait time.

Could a transaction be frozen and lost forever? what are the chances of that happening?
17 is pretty scare, I thought 3 hours was a worldwide record.

What are the chances of that happening?
Pretty low.  They blockcypher link has the transaction with a "99.17% probability of success", that would translate as "less than 1% chance of failure", but honestly, its not really an issue.  There is just a 1% chance that I might have to resend.

I made it to 89 hrs... kinda exciting...

I also noticed that blockchain.info purged their mempool a few days ago.  Others followed in kind.  TradeBlock kept it in their pool the whole time though...

Yet another advantage of running the full node reference client with incoming connections... it will continually rebroadcast my transactions.

In the coming months, it is going to be interesting to see how services that routinely send transactions will adjust their TxFee fee schedule.
