I am really, really interested to see what happens to fees this time around if movement heats up big time again.

Since the last glut we've had massively increased batching, more Segwit and - whisper it - Bcash and Bitmain looking weaker than ever so the chance of blockchain spamming by vested interests to scare people into it may be considerably lower.

Is it anywhere related to scaling? Will SegWit also be unable to keep it lower for longer term?

I think it's good enough for the health of altcoins when Bitcoin blocks go full and fees go high (just a thought), as everyone starts to look for alternatives to cope up with the situation that occurs everytime the network becomes malicious with spamming and needs to get many of those big fee transactions flushed out for these low-fee days to be seen again.

It's once again starting to appreciate higher from previous days and I even saw mempool clogged with too many transactions during last few days. I've had a test transaction that went wrong, I checked how much time does it take to confirm and didn't add more fee (intentionally kept priority at normal) and it turned grey for me. This is the transaction that confirmed after ~9 hours - https://www.blockchain.com/btc/tx/fb266692b2b43d511be23f6de16c9eeb63af331f9c444b65a07ccf076c89b695

I also have a thread regarding this - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5050686.0

P.S.: Posted my thread reference here for others to learn not to make such mistakes.

Consolidate Bump!

Picture of my son's savings loading...

A while ago, I saw recommended fees rise up to 40 sat/byte again when blocks were full. Fees are low again, but it won't last forever.
