Is it possible to prioritize my own unconfirmed transaction through my mining machines without being in a pool? And if its possible how can I do that?

  • How much hashrate do you have access to? – Pieter Wuille Nov 28 '17 at 1:43
  • "without being in a pool", do you mean you are solo mining? – MeshCollider Nov 28 '17 at 2:13
  • @PieterWuille Correction to my comment I sure mean solo mining. I have access to 160GH/s – Denja Dec 2 '17 at 18:28
  • Interesting question, but 160ghs on the Bitcoin network right now is a drop in the ocean. Might be good for a new alt coin, but not for long if it becomes popular. – frеdsbend Dec 2 '17 at 19:29

If you are the pool itself, or are solo mining you can use the prioritisetransaction command to add weight to your own transaction, if you are a client of a pool you do not have any control over what you are mining.

  • If I understand Prioritisetransaction is a client side thing that is configured on bitcoin core software mining node, and it's only possible if i'm a pool myself (solo miner) with how much hashrate would that be possible? – Denja Dec 2 '17 at 18:28

With 150GH/s, at the time of writing, you would find one block every 1500 years.

That means if you were solo mining, you'd be able to control the contents of a block once every 1500 years.

Or in other words: not at all.

  • He could get lucky and front load the first two or three blocks. Lol – frеdsbend Dec 2 '17 at 19:24
