Hello all,

I have made 4 "Sent" transactions in the past 24 hours, with the oldest being 20 hours ago for .15 BTC. Transaction is here -https://blockchain.info/tx/57e512d65e8844187d0e7503a818371c530bbe26ebf97142fe25535860c29b5c

I am using the fee that Blockchain.info wallet recommends, yet it's not confirming. I have used this wallet for a while with no issues. I need confirmations to use my funds on Paxful and the other website I deposited to. Is there any way to speed it up, and how can I prevent it in the future? What is the exact issue? I cannot figure out how to change the fee on the new wallet, on the old one I could.

Thanks. Anyone that can help, I am willing to tip a little bit. This is very important for me. Leave a reply and if it works, your addy too.



Cheers!

Low fee.  65 Satoshi per byte is actually lower than the recommended fee of 110 according to https://bitcoinfees.21.co/ and electrum/core if you set the confirmation target to 2 blocks.
Just submit your tx here, then sit tight and wait a little longer.

This thread might also interest you.  It have some other solutions too.

https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/tx/57e512d65e8844187d0e7503a818371c530bbe26ebf97142fe25535860c29b5c pays a fee of 65 satoshis/byte. Right now, there is a huge number of unconfirmed transactions in the mempool, resulting in a higher fee needing to be paid. Currently, bitcoinfees.21.co recommends a fee of 110 satoshis/byte, which is almost double what you paid. Blockchain.info's wallet doesn't have an very accurate fee estimator. I submitted your tx to ViaBTC's 'accelerator', so it should confirm in the next block that they mine.

In the future, I suggest you check that website and pay the fee that is recommend, or very close to it.

Thank you so much, guys. Please drop me your addresses.

Do you all have any idea on how to change the fee on the Blockchain new wallet? (not the old one)

Thanks.

You can click the "Advanced" button when you're sending and you'll be able to set the fee manually, but you won't have anything to compare the fee to because bc.i doesn't show your transaction size or even fee per KB.

Got it, and my transactions confirmed! Thanks! Sent .002. Not much but hopefully worth your time. Appreciate the help!

DarkStar_, drop me your addy here as well and once I send will lock the topic. Cheers!
