Tried to read up here, still a little confused on if I have any actual options here. I've mostly dealt with ETH, so I wasn't aware of raising the BTC fee etc to help get this mined quicker. Anyway this transaction has been stuck for nearly two days, and while it's not a massive amount I'd surely prefer to have my $300 in the exchange so I can use it....Anything I can do? Thank you.

looks like timing is bad for now, as unconfirmed tx queue keeps on increasing.,

i guess it will take some time, or it will be forgotten from the network, then you can spend it again.

As far as I can see the Miner Preference work is low, 15 hours is considered normal. It was time we waited 3 days.

Glad you've arrived in the world of Bitcoin, the crypto and network that handles the most transactions... eventually, if the crypto/network you use reaches the same volume of transactions of Bitcoin, you would have to be aware of mining fees. I'm pretty certain all miners will prioritise txs on fees, since you're actually paying for the space you take up on blocks.

Just checked out your transaction here: https://blockchain.info/tx/a74a02513901ec832b8f18d6485c074d90b86e30a449fecdd4f632318319ff8c

As you can see, the fee per byte is just over 7 satoshi/byte. This is what's important for you. If you then check https://bitcoinfees.21.co/ this fee is estimated to have a 90% chance of confirming in the next 3-87 blocks, estimated at over 900 minutes away. Now, this is only an estimate at the current status of the network, which currently has over 22k unconfirmed transactions. You can always check here: https://blockchain.info/unconfirmed-transactions

That's actually a lot lower than it was 2/3 days ago. If the network fills up, the fee needs to be higher to improve your chances of being confirmed faster. If the network frees up, your estimated time should get closer.

For now, you can try to accelerate your transactions. There are some such services in this forum offering to do that. Or you can do it yourself with services like: https://pool.viabtc.com/tools/txaccelerator/ -  except they require a min fee of 10 sat/byte.

I've done it for you for this one. Should confirm in next few hours. Next time, you know better.


There is another option, but you're unlikely to have done that since it's an opt-in choice in some wallets... called Replace By Fee (RBF).

So how did you manage to do it as this transaction was only at 7 sat/byte?

I used a different miner service, just submitted and they accepted. It's confirmed now, by the way. There are several others in this forum offering the same, if you search in Services section. Most do it for free, some for a small fee. Antminer also has a service: antpool.com/ you just have to register up for an account, it's within the dashboard.
