Sorry guys & gals - yet another "unconfirmed BTC transaction..".

Looks like the fee was too small, but this was sent 72 hours ago now (at the time of writing)


Do I just need to be more patient?

Edit:12/06/16 - It has been over 120 hours now, are there any options for me to retract the transfer and re-submit with a higher fee?

  • First of all tell me which bitcoin wallet you are using to store and make transactions ? It is showing the size of transactions too high than expected. But don't worry, be a patient person, it will be confirmed soon.

Yes be more patient. In the future you can use this app or others like it to determine an appropriate fee for faster confirmation:


"Which fee should I use?

The fastest and cheapest transaction fee is currently 50 satoshis/byte, shown in green at the top. For the median transaction size of 226 bytes, this results in a fee of 11,300 satoshis (0.04$).

What are the fees shown here?

The fees displayed here are Satoshis (0.00000001 BTC) per byte of transaction data. Miners usually include transactions with the highest fee/byte first. Wallets should base their fee calculations on this number, depending on how fast the user needs confirmations."
