I don't remember well, but i think i either deposit to casino or simply transfer my bitcoin to other wallet. And looking at now, bitcoin transaction fees was only about 10K satoshi (less than 300 bytes) and it's equal to $0.1 or less Roll Eyes
Even though bitcoin price at that time was low, but tx fee was very low and transaction got confirmed quickly.

Recently I had a quite scary experience with bitcoin transaction. On Tuesday morning, I sent 0.016 btc with preset default Electrum fee (it was 50 satoshi/byte at the moment). Then after 48 hours of waiting and tracking my transaction on blockchain.info, it suddenly dissapeared and I got a message "Transaction rejected by our node. Reason: Transaction was previously accepted but has been pruned from our database.". I thought the funds should come back to my wallet, but after 72 hours, nothing has changed. I needed to send that amount, so I decided to send it again in another transaction with much higher fee (140sat/byte). After I sent the second transaction, the first one suddenly changed and it showed I have 1 confirmation. I went to check it to blockchain.info and my first transaction was there again, despite the fact they wrote it was removed from their database. Then, after 10mins, both of the transactions were confirmed.. Huh Oh bitcoin, you make my hair go grey. Tongue Roll Eyes

50 satoshi/byte is very low these days, if you checkhttp://bitcoinfees.21.co/, they suggest you to use 180 satoshis/byte instead. Also, i think you should update your Electrum wallet since newest version don't have default fee anymore but user can choose fees with simple horizontal scroll.

I can't really remember every details of my first transaction but that was a very small amount when I was very new to bitcoin and was earning through faucets. I wanted to start trading with the little amount which I had earned in faucet. So I sent my bitcoins to them.

Since I had used coinbase, I didn't have to pay fees to the network, that I remember! It was mid 2014 and the bitcoin price was really low at that time. If I had bought some bitcoin that time, I would have become a rich man today!

Do you remember what it felt like the very first time you sent out a Bitcoin transaction to another address in your life? For some, it might have been an easy thing to do, especially for the geeks who were here when Bitcoin was born and it had not been valued and traded against fiat currency as following soon after, yet for others it can be very confusing to get things right.

Were you filled more with happiness, excitement or fear when you clicked that 'send' button? And in which year was it when that happened? Did it it turn out just fine, did your transaction arrive where intended?

Let me refresh my memory, I remembered the first time I sent a bitcoin transaction was of course the excitement and joy is being there in my heart, it was such a wonderful experience to earn in online in the internet. Then not engage in networking system. So it was very thankful to God during that time.

I remember it like it was yesterday, but really it was at the end of 2015. I had just learned about Bitcoin from one of my friends who was an early investor, so I started going onto some faucets and earning a small amount of Bitcoin. Soon I was at about 0.01, and my friend called me up and said there was this website where you could make free profit, at the time I didn't know it was a ponzi scheme, but after I deposited it became apparent. Luckily for me, I was able to make some profit, but I am never going to put any money into a ponzi website ever again.

I remember my very first time I think April 2016, well I'm not using blockchain wallet, I use different wallet to send all my funds to a high yield investment site and I'm so happy sending funds because I think my money will grow forever that will make me rich LOLs, before I think there is no such thing as scam in bitcoin world  Grin , but I experience that *beep* sound (that sound from blockchain wallet) everytime I withdraw my funds from hyip site that really give a relief feelings because the profits will surely be sent to my wallet  Grin well that's my experience, now I'm NOT using any scam hyip ponzi websites   Smiley

I remember mine is when I'm trying if I can really cash out my btc ,so I transferred it into my bank account and surprisingly it takes 1day to process that I almost yell at my friend who recommends btc ,though its my fault I didn't read that choosing my use bank will really takes 1 day.

Remember it well. I used bitcoin to pay my vpn provider. I was surprised by how easy it was and how quickly it got approved. As soon as I sent the bitcoin, the page refreshed and a confirmation of payment was there. Now I use bitcoin to pay for many online services.

I really can't remember the very first time that I sent bitcoin. But I remember the first time that where I earned my very first satoshi's. I'm not really into first time's and I don't find it memorable when it comes to this type of transaction. Why would I need to take note and mark the first time I transact with bitcoin and when I did it.

I also forgot the first time I sent/receive bitcoin but I remember how excited I am when I received as well as when I converted it to our local money.
It is just a small amount but that motivates me to earn more and to invest my time here rather than doing social media with nothing in return.

The first time i sent bitcoin is when i want to withdraw bitcoin from some exchange (i get some alt coin for free). I remember checking so many times to make sure that the address is right. I was really nervous that time, afraid of doing it wrong and lose my bitcoin. But all went good and i got the bitcoin about 20 later.  Cheesy

Yeah, me too Grin My first time sending bitcoin was more than a year ago but it is still etched in my memory. It was when I started paying some interest in bitcoin and wanted to interfere in this cryptocurrency world, and I had got a little from faucets, it was about a few dollars but it meant a lot to me. And it took me a while to only transfer the bitcoin from faucet sites to my wallet Grin I kept rechecking the address, I even checked every character, every number of it to make sure I copied it right Grin

I first had to stand in line for over an hour in a bank just to 'buy' those bitcoins from a local exchange.  Sad
Then another hour to reread every instruction I could find on how to send.
And then this as well:  Grin
--
I kept rechecking the address, I even checked every character, every number of it to make sure I copied it right Grin
Then it was on to blockchain.info waiting and checking if I got the confirmation. And making sure the address was correct.

Plus, another time I probably won't forget, the first time I personally calculated and set the fees for a transaction. Cheesy
Spent quite some time with the calculator, then double checking the formula and the suggested fee/byte at the time. I remember I was quite proud of myself then. Haha.  Grin
Memorable times.  Grin

Yes I do remember very vividly when I sent my first amount of bitcoin and I was surprised to see how quickly everything happens and btc is reflected in receipients account.
Unfortunately that was a ponzi cloud mining site and being new to btc, I fell for there lucrative plan.
