I have this transaction that's been pending for 2 days. mempool says estimate in several hours or more. For context, I am using blue wallet on ios and electrum on android. I imported the electrum wallet using the secure pass phrase and now I can send from both my ios device and android device. I even tried to bump the fee using electrum (since blue wallet does not allow me for some reason), but that still had no effect.

Your transaction is currently about 77 blocks from the top of the mempool. Given that the Runes protocol will become active at the halving height, and that may cause a significant increase in blockspace demand for an extended period of time, and the halving is going to happen in 70 blocks, your transaction may take a few months to confirm at that feerate.

  • Thanks, does electrum fee bump even work? I tried to bump it and it created a new transaction mempool.space/tx/… What can I do to bump it with a resonable fee

    It seems to work: you created a child transaction with a higher feerate that raised the package’s effective feerate (parent+child) to 10 ṩ/vB, but if you are looking for a confirmation before the halving I would suggest that you consult some feerate estimations e.g. from whatthefee.io, or mempool.space which suggest about 4–6× of that for a moderately fast confirmation.
