Lets say I set a very low transaction fee for a bitcoin transaction(from one of my own wallets to another). I also have mining equipment which is mining for bitcoins. Is there anyway to get that transaction request directed towards me ? In other words can I process my own transactions by giving it priority? If so how do I do this?

  • While you can prioritize your own transaction, it won't do much good, unless you're in control of a large hash pool. The probability of a single user ever completing a block specifically crafted with their own transaction is extremely small. It is better to just pay a reasonable transaction fee.

  • If I want to send 10USD worth of bitcoins, I have to pay 6USD as fees?

Yes, you can. This is the exact purpose of the RPC command prioritisetransaction.
