Why are all my recent transactions getting stuck all of a sudden?
I never had such issues at all, I can recall some transactions taking time to get confirmed, but never like this.
Now it looks like every transaction I make just gets stuck, even though the fee is pretty high, I even increased it a bit in the last transaction and they asked me to lower it because anyway according to them it would have been confirmed within 10 minutes, which didn't happen.

1st: https://blockchain.info/tx/eaa80dc2f1ced931dcb1564aac7beca38e7ecad6efc55ebc1ea25072d2e00208
2nd: https://blockchain.info/tx/351dacd600cf3b3e7babcde9f2b2b5de6224e5b68c0af629f364ea122f72d26a
3rd: https://blockchain.info/tx/28d3292e8f5142c30f5ea72d975622ef92a0d5e90e1884637f4b59816d32bc0b

As you can see the fee is pretty decent considering the size of the transactions.
Normally I would just wait, but I'm actually worried because this delaying could end up in me basically getting scammed, as the people who got these payments might start thinking I double spent in an attempt to scam them and eventually refuse to give me what I paid for.

Your transaction fee rate is not high at all. You are paying a fee rates of 109 sat/byte, 120 sat/byte, and 132 sat/byte, which are much lower than the current recommended fee rate of 270 sat/byte according to https://bitcoinfees.21.co/.

Your third tx depends on the second, so it cannot confirm until the second does. The second depends on the first, so that cannot confirm until the first does.

Read https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1802212.0 for what you can do about your transactions.

The network's overloaded with unconfirmed transactions today. This website recommends paying a fee of 270 satoshis/byte to get fast confirmations.

https://bitcoinfees.21.co/

Your 1st transaction only pays a fee of 109.093 sat/B. That's normally an OK fee, but it's not today because there's 169000 unconfirmed transactions in the network.

I didn't know transaction confirmations were tied to each other.... in this case I think I screwed up because I'm pretty sure the first transaction is never gonna get confirmed... and thanks for linking me that topic, I'll definitely take a look at it to prevent issues like this to happen again.
At this point I hope some kind miner notice this thread and pushes the first transaction for me..

Yeah I'm well aware of all those unconfirmed transactions, I will be more careful next time.

I kept trying the viabtc accelerator until it accepted your 1st transaction, but I haven't yet managed to get it to accept the other two. This transaction should confirm when the viabtc pool mines its next block.

Thanks man, I managed to accelerate the 1st transaction as well through the viabtc accelerator, I was lucky af cause literally after 1 minute "spots" were all taken. Will I need to repeat the same process for the two other transactions?

Yes, you'll have to go through the same process for the other two transactions. Try the 2nd next, then the 3rd.

What wallet did you use to send the transactions?

Okay.. I think I managed to push the 2nd as well, however the 1st transaction still has 0 confirmations even though we both "pushed" it..

Your 1st transaction now has three confirmations. i successfully submitted your 3rd transaction through the viabtc accelerator. They should all be confirmed when the viabtc pool mines its next block.

Thanks, I really appreciate your help. The first two got confirmed, now I'll wait the third one.
