You are definitely being scammed - you should write off the $500 as an expensive lesson and never deal with these people again. No legitimate company operates in such a way. $200 on a $18500 profit is also not what you would pay under any real tax structure, and even if you had to pay it, it would be paid alongside your regular taxes. Even if the company had ...

You are right, after about three years, we only achieved about 11% of native segwit usage, ~ 1000 BTC locked in public lightning channels, RBF/CPFP usage is about 15%/10%. Unfortunately, most people don't care much whether they pay $0.02 or $0.2 in fees. They only start caring when fees are much higher than that. Since January 2018, we have only had that at ...

TLDR: You can find some OLD 2019 DATA comparing their accuracy for one-hour estimations here: https://bitpost.co/evaluations I asked myself this question about two years ago and wasn't able to find an answer. I then set out to build an app that measured how accurate fee estimations from various sources were. Below are the design choices and some OUTDATED ...

And since the sum of the outputs is greater than the sum of the inputs, the transaction is invalid. Bitcoin does not take Bitcoin from particular inputs and map it to a particular output. ...

I believe you're confusing units here, and entered a value intended as sat/vB in a place that expects sat/kvB. Perhaps you intended to use 40 sat/vB (=40000 sat/kvB, or 0.0004 BTC/kvB), which would translate to around 10000 sat (or 0.0001 BTC) for a typical transactions. When interpreted as 40 sat/kvB, it would be far below the minimal relay fee on the ...

Many thanks to Pieter Wuille for his quick help. I got confused with units. The correct input would have been some ten thousand satoshis for bitcoin-qt is calculating in Kilo Bytes.

My recommendation is to look at mempool.space before sending a transaction. There you can either choose to trust their estimates which are posted directly on the site, or you can figure out yourself based on the actual fees also shown on the same dashboard having been paid in the previous few blocks, combined with information on the nr of transactions in ...

I have accidentally made a transaction with a very low fee (5 sat/byte) and I doubt that it will be confirmed any time It may get confirmed in few hours/days based on the fee distribution of mempool I see at https://btc.bitaps.com How can I change the -mempoolexpiry setting in my BitcoinCore (0.20.1), which I run on Windows 10, so that I don't need to wait ...
