Order still pending after 17 hours


So I placed a buy order for NVST using xcp yesterday and set the speed for between 4-50 blocks and it has yet to be placed. Anyone have any idea what’s going on?


Now my order is no longer pending and no buy order was ever placed…

Really don’t want to pay another $30 to get bitcoin to even place an order…

If you want a transaction processed fast/immediately, you need to pay the high transaction fee. The reason your transaction is delayed is because there are many people in front of you willing to pay much MORE than the $30 your offering… Mostly due to the recent BTC price pump/mania.

See the chart below which shows the amount of pending transactions over the last week… as you can see, there is a bit of a backlog.

My advice would be to
1.) Wait a few days and your transaction should get processed
2.) If you need to get a transaction processed immediately, send it with a “high” or custom fee
3.) If your willing to wait a bit for your transaction to get processed, you can pay way cheaper fees (pennies not dollars)

Hey thanks for the reply!

Order went through and everything worked out in the end :slight_smile:
