  • I can't find this client. Do you see a "replace by fee" option in this client? Can you share a link to download this client? – Scott Dec 9 '17 at 16:59

You can use replace by fee to encourage miners to pick up your transaction. This should be your next step. See here for more info:

What is replace-by-fee?

Also, here is a how to: https://freedomnode.com/blog/75/how-to-fix-slow-bitcoin-transactions-with-replace-by-fee

This site can help recommend what you should use for your fee so that you can set your expectations of when a transaction will be confirmed: https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ Basically, the more you pay with a fee, the faster it will be confirmed. The less you pay, the slower it will be confirmed.

You skimped on the mining fee (only 96 sat/byte). The miners will pickup other higher paying transactions in preference to yours. As mentioned above it is possible to send another transaction through with a higher fee. This is called double spend.

The Core developers have engineered this problem by restricting the blocksize thereby throttling the number of transactions per second that bitcoin can process.
