I made two transactions to the same address. One was yesterday and took 2 hours to confirm. The one today to the same address is still pending and does not show in blockchain or others. Any idea what's going on? I've read many of the blogs but can't find one that applies to this issue. The transaction from yesterday was just fine.

Without seeing the details of the transactions... we will all just be speculating on the cause for your transaction getting stuck.

The most likely cause is (relatively) "low fee"... The Bitcoin network is super busy at the moment... 100,000+ unconfirmed transactions pending. As such, fees required for quick confirmation times have skyrocketed... "recommended" fees (https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ and https://btc.com/stats/unconfirmed-tx) are now in the 350-400+ sats/byte range. Undecided

Any transaction with a fee less than that will likely be delayed for an indeterminate amount of time.

Other causes could be spending from unconfirmed parent transactions. Child transactions cannot be confirmed until the parent is. If you have received coins in a transaction that has not been confirmed, and then attempt to spend those unconfirmed coins, then your transaction cannot confirm until the incoming one does. Likewise, if you're spending change from an unconfirmed transaction, it can't confirm until the parent transaction does.

Please post your transaction link so I can have a look of whats wrong. Like the above reply it may be because of low TX fee your confirmation is still pending. If this is the cause then you can accelerate the transaction for a faster confirmation using the services in the marketplace section for free. Hope you see the link soon.

All, I appreciate the help. Looks like it confirmed overnight when I was sleeping at 2A my time. (about 18 total hours) Can I control the fee coinbase at all or should I just accept it's going to be forever with the congestion of the network? I'll try an accelerator program next time but if it doesn't who up in the diff locations, I can't accelerate it right?

You can accelerate it with viabtc it is a free accelerator for unconfirmed transaction I don't know how that works but all I know is there's a lot of free accelerator in Service section if you look around it you can try to ask for their help

I think you only put a 20satoshi per bytes that's why it takes so long to be confirmed by the network because miners priority is to confirmed the highest satoshi per bytes transaction.

Good for you I also experience that and not finding my transaction hash in blockchain.info really bothers me that time but I can't find any solution so I just leave it as is and the next morning I just see the coins already in my wallet. Most of the time blockchain really having hard time processing transaction I even experience 24hrs of confirmation. There are many accelerators online but I havent tried any and IM afraid which one is legit and how it works.
