I know that most of you know that ViaBTC are offering a service to accelerate transactions and everyone seem to send transaction with low fees and use it to make things faster.
I was checking btc.com blockexplorer until I saw an option to accelerate transaction which probably got added recently, I thought I should share it with you.

Unlike ViaBTC though, the service is not free but It's really nothing much when you need to speed up a transaction urgently: https://pushtx.btc.com/

"Cooperating with main Bitcoin pools, we provide transaction accelerator service, which can make the probability of confirming transaction within 1 hour come up to 75% and 98% within 4 hours."

i think it depends, but the other day i wanted to try their service for my .005btc transaction and they did ask me for $6+ so i didn't tried it and I'm not sure if my transaction will be confirmed in the very next block since they claim they are cooperating with other pools

You insert your transaction and then click 'ESTIMATE PRICE', then you can pay with your VISA card so you can spend your bitcoin, the irony is unbelievable...

Price is based on the tx size, BTC price, etc. as mentioned on their website and on the blockexplorer, you will only see the option If your transaction is unconfirmed (logically):

I find ironic the fact we need to use Visa to push a bitcoin transaction Cheesy If people want to use bitcoin it's because they don't want to use fiat. In this case then better to pay the full amount with your visa or any other payment method

That being said, It seems that the fee is really high. Almost the same amount with the btc that you're sending. I think it's not worth it (just my opinion though). Quite helpful if you really really have an urgent transaction to make, but if not, I'd rather wait.

Am i the only one think that this is example of centralization, since they offer paid service to let users got their transaction confirmed (similar sidechain/LN) and pay it with centralized payment service Huh
Better use ViaBTC service, increase fees when make transaction or re-broadcast the unconfirmed transaction.

I almost used this service today, but seeing Visa as option I said "No". I agree with you
saying that you just have to wait if the transaction you are expecting is not urgent.
I guess we all know why this is happening, but spending more just to get your transaction
confirmed doesn't sounds good to me. IHMO. So I went on the next best option which
is viabtc and in about 2 hr my transaction got confirmed. So I guess you need a little patience
and just wait for your transaction to be confirmed.

For me also it is crazy idea, but the truth is that ViaBTC is overloaded and people are looking for other possibilities.
But using VISA to pay for Bitcoin transactions looks for me like nightmare or joke of village drunkard Grin

BTC.com's accelerator is so overpriced. I took this transaction, which is 361 bytes and pays a 75 satoshi/kb fee, and BTC.com asks for $4.42 just to accelerate it, which I find it hard to believe that anyone would be willing. If you are willing to pay $5 to accelerate a transaction, why not just spend a bit more on fees so you don't need to pay the $5? I wonder what BTC.com was thinking with this.




For me also it is crazy idea, but the truth is that ViaBTC is overloaded and people are looking for other possibilities.

If you accelerate a transaction within the first 10 minutes of every hour, it's a very good chance that you can get it.

Because you were not the one creating the transaction...

Plus, it has to be expensive, there are a lot of fees to be paid from those $5.

I was looking for an alternate txn accelerator besides viabtc lat night and saw btc.com but thy are right. It's way too overpriced and I am not paying $5 to get a $20 worth btc in my transaction to get confirmed. I'll still be using viabtc.

However, I am also joining the 'it's too expensive' club because why would someone pay this amount to accelerate the transaction if he can include it in the miner fees itself rather than paying it to confirm it.

So it is every full hour.. Thanks for info, I was not sure when they restart this 100 limit.

They don't expect that users who know how to calculate fee will use this service. For sure they expect that they will earn on people mistakes. If someone will need realize transaction fast, and it will be important for him, will pay any amount to do this.. Especially for international deals, or between companies.

Well of course it only boosts the fees and such so it isn't much good unless you're trying to do RBF. BTC.com's tool is way too expensive and really it'd be cheaper to just wait until the top of an hour and try to get your tx in on viabtc's tx accelerator.

I would prefer it to be totally free as is the case with the accelerator that viabtc is offering, but this tool can come very handy if a withdrawal from an exchange takes ages to confirm while you need it to confirm quickly.

I however find it utterly strange that they require you to pay with a centralized nutter service as Visa. Bitcoin should be the only payment option. I honestly can't stop laughing at how amateurish they set everything up.

Replace that centralized nutter service completely to make place for Bitcoin. What a joke, seriously.

I see. Almost every web wallet is including appropriate fees with each transaction according to the network load. On a corporate level, this service might prove very beneficial to push the things faster speed. Otherwise, for normal bitcoin users, $5 fees are insane in usual conditions. However, these kind of extra efforts to confirm the transaction are not something that we should be proud of as a bitcoin community.
