News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Hi,

I was playing Bitcoin Darts Today and it has taken over 3 hrs to receive 1 unconfirmed payment of many.

Just wondering - In general how long it should take to receive a payment and what have people been experiencing.

Thanks

There is only limited amount of free transactions every hour. As Bitcoin popularity is going up, those slots are full time to time. To speed up transaction processing, you can offer some fee in the client settings. Then the transaction will be included ASAP.

Does the fee go into a pot and then split among the "coin generators"?

Does the fee help speed transactions being received only or sent as-well?

Is there a finite # of free slots, or will they increase if more users join, or is it a supply and demand thing?

The transaction fee goes to whoever happened to generate the next block.
