Now that segwit transactions are consistently making up 10% of each block and the witness section is making up more than 6% of the block, I'm a little confused by why median transaction fees are still high. A year ago, there were about 230k transactions/day and now there are about 260k transactions/day - just a 13% increase. But fees are up 1400% since a year ago.
What's causing fees to remain high even tho we've increased capacity by 6% (and rising) and only have 13% more transactions? Are people still falling for bad fee prediction algorithms? Is there an increased demand for quickly-confirming transactions?
