Hey guys, title explains it basically.

I have tried to accelerate my transaction but it is taking a while?

I paid a fee of 50 sat/B

Any ideas?

The fees you paid way too low.

Before you send a transaction, you can check the current best fee here https://btc.com/stats/unconfirmed-tx

You can pm Quickseller If you want to confirm it quickly by giving extra fee.

Accelerators are not working for me too. I used viabtc but it doesn't recognize my transaction and same goes for pushtx too.

Since you've used a 50sat/bytes fee, your transaction should get confirmed in 45 minutes to 19 hours as per https://bitcoinfees.21.co. If you had paid 100 sat/b fee, it would get confirmed in less than 2 hours.

No 26k 50 sat / byte transactions got confirmed today.[1]

Before you send a transaction, you can check the current best fee here https://btc.com/stats/unconfirmed-tx
-snip-

Which also suggests that 50 satoshi per byte is still a reasonable fee if you have time.

How can I get the transaction sped up?

You cant, at least not easily or quickly. How old is the transaction? What is its ID? Which wallet do you use?

The transaction was sent at 12:39 GMT.

Using Electrum wallet.

I'd rather not give out the ID apologies.

So its just a few hours, keep broadcasting the transaction periodically. It should be confirmed after 1 or 2 days.

How can I get the transaction sped up?

If your electrum wallet is version 2.7.0 or newer, and you enabled Replace-By-Fee in its preferences, you can replace your transaction with one that has a higher fee. However, Replace-By-Fee is disabled when you install a wallet, you have to enable it yourself.

If it's not enabled, and you would like that option for speeding up future transactions, then enable it using the following steps.

Select tools, then preferences.




This is the default preferences window.




Check the "enable Replace-By-Fee" checkbox, then click the close button.




When you send Bitcoins check the checkbox marked "replaceable" to make a transaction that allows Replace-By-Fee.
