I don't know what do you define as 'normal' but the mempool size is quite busy for the last 10 hours.

You can change the period to 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 1 year if you want to compare, you will see it happens, as the last time 10 days ago

You can post us your transaction hash as suggested.
We will take a look at the fee. You probably used a low fee, and now with all this volatility and the crazy times we are living the network is quite busy. You should use a higher fee for a fast confirmation.

But your transaction will eventually get confirmed.

64000 unconfirmed transactions in any given time, is not normal. The usual number of unconfirmed transaction is around 10k - 12k. However, sometimes we see a dip and sometimes we see an increase in numbers on unconfirmed transactions. But 64k is quite high. If you have initiated a transaction and still showing as unconfirmed, please try some free bitcoin transaction accelerator found via Google search. I don't know how much helpful will it be, but there's no harm in trying at least!

I don't think that transaction accelerators work.The transaction will eventually get confirmed,but OP will have to wait.I remember that there were lots of unconfirmed transactions back in the winter 2017-2018.Back then,there were conspiracy theories about the BTC miners sending lots of spam transactions,making the blockchain stuck and forcing users to increase the transaction fees in order to increase the confirmation time.
This theory wasn't proven by anyone.The current BTC price stays stable at 6,6K USD,so I guess that there's no panic selling.

There are 3 possible actions :
1. Wait and be patient
2. Increase the fee of the transaction. Only works if your wallet make transaction which support RBF (Replace by fee)
2. If there's "change" when you make a transaction, which sent to your Bitcoin address, you can spend it on a transaction with high fees.

Mempool currently 64000 unconfirmed transactions is this normal It seems to be increasing for hours burying my deposit Sad

I don't see how it helps, unless other blockexplorer/node already drop OP's transaction from mempool.

--snip-- quote of LFC_Bitcoin talking about free tx accelerators --snip--

Well, it does help... I used ViaBTC's free tx accelerator numerous times in the past, aswell as antpool's... ViaBTC accepts a limited amount of transactions, but if they promise to include you into one of the next blocks they solve, they do exactly that (or at least, they did exactly that the last time i used them, it was a while ago tough).

I think antpool just increases your priority a little bit, so if you grossly cheaped out on your fee, they'll still not include you in their next block.

That being said, your other options are perfect aswell:
  • Wait, rebroadcast the raw, signed, transaction every couple of days
  • Wait untill most nodes drop the tx from their mempool, then ask the sender to re-send using the same unspent outputs as input (only if you trust the sender)
  • Do a RBF (only if opt-in RBF)
  • Do a CPFP (very easy with some wallets like electrum)
  • Make the sender attempt a double spend (basically the same as the second option, but before most nodes dropped the tx from their mempool, decreasing the odds of this working, but also decreasing the timeframe and not mutually exclusive with the second option)
  • Pay a big, trusted, pool to include your tx in the next blocks they're trying to solve... Do NOT pay somebody random who promises to "mine" your transaction, do not pay somebody random to "accelerate" your transaction. They'll either use free tools, or just wait it out and say they fixed your problem... Unless they run away without doing anything
  • Use a free tx accelerator
