Does the amount of bitcoin being transacted affect the transaction time?
I've heard that Bitcoin has something called proof-of-work, which though I may have not completely understood, is that the blockchain must validate the transaction for it to occur. (please correct me if I got something wrong) But how does that work exactly? Do all computers in the blockchain has to validate the transaction history of each bitcoin unit (and how many decimals is that)? And if so, does that mean the amount transacted can impact the transfer time?
How do large amounts of bitcoin unconfirmed transactions get resolved?
By looking at Johoe's Bitcoin mempool size, there are currently over 100k unconfirmed transactions and it seems to be more then their has been in six months. How does this get resolved and how is it prevented from mounting up into a huge amount of transactions?
Advice About Bitcoin Transaction Fees (In anticipation of high fees for the next bullrun)
Hi guys, this is my first post here! Thanks for having me, I interact a lot on Bitcoin and crypto groups on Facebook but I wanted to find new Bitcoin folks and discussions here! The other day I saw someone complaining about the wait time for a Bitcoin transaction so I wrote a few pieces of advice in regards to Bitcoin transaction fees. I hope this can be useful for some of you! Here it is: For those worried about Bitcoin's high transaction fees and transaction wait times right now, you should brace yourself for the upcoming TRUE Bitcoin Bullrun. Remember that in 2017, at the peak of the bubble, the average transaction fee was up to $ 50 per transaction and some people even paid $ 1000 for single transactions. This is sure to repeat itself at an unprecedented level as I believe this time around an even bigger wave of people will be buying Bitcoin. Not only investors like you and me, but also big companies who will buy in tens and hundreds of millions. Here are some tips to mitigate the impact of transaction fees on your use of Bitcoin.
1. Learn How to Use the Mempool.
The mempool is the space where valid Bitcoin transactions are stored while waiting to be included in a validated Bitcoin block. Obviously, miners will select transactions with higher transaction fees to fill up a valid block. I recommend this mempool explorer which visually represents how full the mempool is and will indicate to you how many satoshi /vbyte you need to apply on your transaction in order for it to be included in your desired timeframe. Fee estimators in wallets are not ideal and ultimately none of them has found the perfect recipe for proper fee estimation. Selecting the transaction fee manually by consulting the mempool remains the best option to select the fee. A few tips:
Evenings and weekends are generally less busy from a transactional standpoint, so this is a good time to save on fees.
If you're not in a rush, include a really low fee, it will be included at some point.
2. Use wallets that support Segwit and RBF (Replace by Fee)
Segwit is an improvement made to Bitcoin in 2017 that redefined the way transactions take space in a block. Just by using a Bitcoin wallet that supports it, you will save between 20-60% in fees depending on the complexity of the transaction. RBF is a function in wallets that allows you to modify the transaction fees associated with a transaction following its broadcast on the Bitcoin network. So, if your transaction does not go through quickly enough for your liking, you can increase the fee later. To find out which Bitcoin software wallet supports both features, you can consult this comparison table from Veriphi where they list several dozen wallets here. Fun fact: Veriphi also made a case study to find out how many fees could have been saved by Bitcoin users if they had used SEGWIT and the Batching technique in the cases where they apply.
Between 2012 and August 2020, more than 57,817 .69 BITCOINS would have been saved in transaction costs, or approximately 1 billion Canadian Dollars in transaction fees. For those who are interested in the results, check it out more in detail here.
3. Do not leave your coins on a platform (Bonus: Use a immediate delivery platform)
Custodial exchanges often block Bitcoin withdrawals during high transaction volume episodes because they do not want to pay their user's Bitcoin transaction fees. If they don't block it they will often make their user overpay for the transactions fees. This has happened in the PAST and even quite recently, so if you want to avoid a lot of the frustration and stress when the Bullrun comes, remove your coins from there before it is too late, preferably right now. Some non-custodial platform in Canada: veriphi.io Bullbitcoin.com I strongly anticipate the increase in transaction fees. Watch out for platforms that haven't implemented transaction optimization techniques yet, they will have the hardest time sending transactions. Check out this article about the advantages of an immediate delivery platform here.
High Bitcoin transaction fees are inevitable in Bitcoin and even desired because they will one day have to replace the block rewards. This is a demonstration that Bitcoin works and that the world is using it. By adopting the best practices and the right technologies, you will be able to mitigate your costs and accumulate more Bitcoin in the end. *Disclaimer: I work at Veriphi.io but didn't want to be too pushy, I hope you appreciate the tips and the provided resources. Cheers
