This is the second or third time this has happened;
I always set my transaction fee to "high" so it goes through in a reasonable time period, however for whatever reason the Bitcoin protocol often lumps your transaction in with someone else's in a "block" or some shit.
So once again I have my tiny transfer lumped in with someone transferring literally millions of dollars of Bitcoin and paying bugger all transaction fees so it's probably going to take days again to confirm the transaction, currently been over five hours.

God damn it Bitcoin is stupid.

It will never be the future of money transfer, that is for sure . And most people only buy it to hold thinking it is going to give them a 1000x return of investment.

And if you type in the wrong number to transfer to then you may never see it again, no chance of refunds . No protection from anything going wrong.

Basically completely useless ....

I guess I've been lucky with BTC recently. Although the transfer fees seem mad these days the transfers are quick. I remember in the old days though transfers going missing for days.

I find LTC transfers quite fast & the fees quite reasonable if the casino you're playing at accepts it.

For those in the US, it is the only option. Its a bit cumbersome at first but not bad once you learn how to work around it. I always hold on to a little in my wallet in case it ever skyrockets (as so many have predicted). Wishful thinking, i guess...
