Its really a great news for localbitcoins users.

The incoming fee has been increased from 0.0004 btc to 0.00096 btc for whatever amount you send above 0.0009 btc.

That's really a great progress.

Ya  I don't see the positive in that, though I'm not a big user of Localbitcoins. Maybe I should be.

Its really a great news for localbitcoins users.

The incoming fee has been increased from 0.0004 btc to 0.00096 btc for whatever amount you send above 0.0009 btc.

That's really a great progress.

It's unfortunate, especially the timing of it as we approach the fork. It helps feed the narrative that 2x is necessary. There's no way around the fact that network spam is really bad right now. I've never seen this kind of sustained spam on the network. They have done it for many days now and presumably won't stop until after the fork. And they are creating bottlenecks at different fee rates: this is a very calculated move, not just a barrage of random network transactions.

I feel your pain.....when possible, do cash transactions and avoid necessitating deposit to Localbitcoins at all.

I'm sorry, I might be having a blonde moment here. What is there to celebrate about these news? I use local bitcoins and I always advise newcomers to start there as it is convenient. But how is paying a higher fee for incoming transaction a cause for celebration? Or you were being sarcastic? If you did, I missed that part.

For those who aren't aware, Localbitcoins has implemented this policy, levying a deposit fee since July or August as I recall. And the amount is not fixed, it rises as the network becomes more congested. I have already paid well over 100,000 satoshi on incoming deposits in the past, but the last time I used it this week, this was around 39,000. So it isn't an increase from 40k to 96k, the current rate is just reflective of the network.

My criticisms:
1. No other service charges a deposit fee. We already pay tx fees and you are punishing users for using the service. Sellers like myself are the ones who bear these high fees. So LBC charges twice: on deposits and withdrawals.
2. The adjustments are lagging behind the network. When it becomes congested fees rise, but they don't seem to come down much or quickly when the network clears.

All the same, I understand the reasons. They want to discourage people making multiple dust deposits, which lead to many inputs for them and higher cost of sending BTC out. But they can easily fix this by setting a higher minimum deposit.

Not good news, but I still like the service, so I can "accept" this.

What are you, some kind of moron?  This is the most obviously sarcastic post I've seen in my life.

It seems that LocalBitcoins is assuming that their users want to have their transactions confirmed as quickly as possible, which is why they're setting such high incoming fees.

I'm actually in favour of incoming fees in the right circumstances, because when you're dealing with a third party they're a useful way to prevent people from pushing up the services' fees when sending the coins out again, but the incoming fees should not be one uniform amount for everyone.

It would make more sense for LocalBitcoins to implement some kind of priority setting in your account in which both your incoming and outgoing fees are reduced.  Then they could group together a collection of low-priority transactions to stay professional with their users and allow people who want to trade smaller amounts to continue using LocalBitcoins.

It's unfortunate, especially the timing of it as we approach the fork. It helps feed the narrative that 2x is necessary.

I honestly think that this change was to actually stress out S2X is needed to make cheap and fast payments great again (lol). Sometimes in this industry, some services are being paid to push some agenda subliminally (like in this example, LBC) making it look like something needs to be done and a certain move should be done. Sure enough they are constantly receiving great fees from the trades done in their platform and there's no need to have a constant 0.00096 btc fee for everything since the fees are declining depending on the time of the day. Whatever floats their boats, I guess.

For a hot wallet? Better use blockchain.info but only keep a small amount in there.
