My received Bitcoin's block is 14 hours old and there are zero confirmations.   Is this typical of what is going on right now?

That was a large transaction (2657 bytes) and fee paid was only 0.00016044 btc when fee should have been 0.002657 btc for quick confirmation.

Maybe this effect of segwit that is going on,
wait until 1 * 24 hours this condition may have been normal again, and many other transactions are pending.

I thought that tx free looked pretty low.  This Bitcoin was sent to me by Nice Hash.

You should talk to NiceHash about their mistake and get them to push the transaction.

You need to make sure you send appropriate fee amount for every transaction.

See, if your fee is too low the transaction will take much longer to go through, especially if your forgot to give a fee.

I didn't make this transaction, this was a payout from Nice Hash.

It's now been over 24 hours.  I just checked the block again and it says it was received 26 minutes ago??

So what's the longest amount of time anyone has seen a block take to confirm?

That transaction with the 6.038 sat/byte fee has no confirmations. If you are lucky it could confirm in a day.
