So i found here: What can I do to make my stuck transaction confirm? one of the options was: Ask a miner for help Some mining pools and miners offer services to allow you to prioritize your transaction in their mempool so that it is chosen sooner for inclusion in a block. One such service is https://pool.viabtc.com/tools/txaccelerator/. Note that ViaBTC does have a limit the accelerator to 100 transactions every hour and requires that it pays a minimum fee rate of 10 satoshis/byte, so their accelerator may not necessarily work. Another such service is https://pushtx.btc.com/#/. Not that BTC.com does require another form of payment in order to "accelerate" your transaction.

Also note that if you attempt a Replace-By-Fee transaction, both the original transaction and the RBF transaction will be considered double spends. Miners will likely not help with any transactions marked as double spends.

So i was curious if i had my own bitcoin mining device node if i could start mining that to push it through like other mines do. I do not care about the reward of mining it just that my confirmation speeds up.

I see these other people doing it so i know there is a way.

No, you can only confirm a transaction if you found a new block, but this is very unlikely to happen when solo mining.


The answer is yes but very unlikely, when miner solves the block, the miner chooses what transaction to include, by miner means solo mine or owns a pool with a very high share of hashrate
