Why do you ask when you already have the answer in the topic? It's a stresstest, done by those that want to show that we need bigger max block limits on bitcoin blockchain.

I think they are actually researchers. Each transaction really only has a small amount of BTC, and then they ship it back to the originating wallet (or something very similar). Nobody is "spending" or "exchange" Bitcoin, it's essentially a "Wallet to Wallet" test.

there are some spammers, attackers among them for sure, because the test should've ended for now, we get it, bitcoin can't handle the current amount of transaction

but someone is still perpetuating it, this mean that he is not doing it for testing, but he want to convince people to change to xt or whatever other reason

Testnet doesn't really provide an accurate real life example as there isn't much hashrate and transactions. Many miners have modified their rules to try to include more non spam transactions. This is a larger scale one as the unconfirmed transaction has constantly been at 40K+ at most of the time. Last stress test I saw, the spam didn't last for days and wasn't above 20k+. Unfortunately, the only way to get fast confirmation is to add higher fees as of now.

Not really, any rational borrower would acknowledge that the confirmation would take slightly more time. However, in exchanges, deposits requires 3+ confirmations to appear in account. The transaction must first gain a confirmation which can be difficult under 0.0002BTC/kb of fee.

I'm having trouble syncing my wallet today. Has happened maybe a handful of times over the years. Doesn't seem to want to go past 37 hours remaining atm. I'm not overly panicking. Is this a result of the stress test?

A transaction doesn't need to go through to get a txid, as it's just a cryptographic hash.

I have recently become active again after a long period of inactivity. Cryptographic proof that my account has not been compromised is available.

Who sent the transactions? A web service? Or a wallet? If there's no txid, it means the party responsible for sending the transaction is backlogged, not the Bitcoin network.

That's because the last few test aren't conducted on a large scale. Since the unconfirmed transactions is constantly above 30k, the attackers would have spent quite some money to push it up and maintain at such a high amount for days. That being said, a little higher fee would immediately solve the problem and doubling of block size would require double the money to conduct an attack that is like this.

It is time to decide, which one is most precious time or BTC ? Grin
If BTC, then don't worry about time. lower your transaction fees.
If Time, then don't worry about BTC. increase your transaction fees.
