Bitcoin transaction fees (sometimes referred to as mining fees) allow users to prioritize their transactions (sometimes referred to as tx) over other transactions and get faster into their transaction ledger. Bitcoin, and is called the complete list of blocks mined since the creation of Bitcoin. There is also a company called Blockchain.info that provides various Bitcoin services like a block explorer and a bitcoin wallet but they don’t have control or authority over Bitcoin’s blockchain. How much is a transaction in the blockchain, the miner will consider which transaction has the highest fee? Not paying enough Bitcoin transaction fees can sometimes get your transaction stuck for a very long time.

What is a Bitcoin transaction fee?
Transaction fees are the amount that Bitcoin owners pay miners whenever they want to transfer money to another bitcoin address. To understand it in more detail, we need to understand what happens when you send Bitcoin to another address:
• Transactions that are checked by each computer will hold a valid copy of the Bitcoin blockchain (Also known as a node). Basically, at this stage, the nodes are checking the Bitcoin transaction history to prove that you have Bitcoin and you want to spend within your balance limit.
• After a transaction is considered valid, it enters Mempool (short for Memory Pool). You can understand this is a kind of “waiting room”, where the transaction sits and waits for a miner to select and pack it into a block for trading. At the moment, the transaction is considered to be “unconfirmed transaction” or “zero-confirmation transaction”.
• Once a miner selects a transaction and places it in a successfully mined block, the transaction is deemed confirmed.
How to calculate Bitcoin?
In the past, Bitcoin transaction fees had different rules than today. You can submit a free transaction if your trade is small or if it is “preferred”. However, now everything has changed and every transaction is required to pay a fee if you want to be confirmed.
Calculating the appropriate Bitcoin transaction fee is not a simple task, the calculation is as follows:
Every transaction is the same size as the file size on your computer. Because they want to maximize their profits, miners will prioritize transactions with larger Bitcoin transaction costs. I will take an example in a different market for your understanding.
When you come to buy or rent an apartment there is usually a cost per square meter. Apartment prices are similar to the transaction fees you pay. The fee is the cost of Bitcoin per square meter.
Rates are measured in satoshi per byte. It means taking Satoshi (the smallest unit of account in Bitcoin), multiplying by that many bytes (units of size). At any time you can check the estimate of the fee charged for your transaction in the next block.
How can I set the correct Bitcoin transaction fee?
There are many fee estimation websites that can be easily accessed. The most popular of which is bitcoinfess.21.co. However, the algorithm of this site sometimes predicts completely skewed, even giving advice 5 times higher than the actual number. An effective tactic used by many people is to choose the lowest fee of the most recently mined block.
However, many wallet platforms do not yet have a feature that allows users to set their own fees and this makes them lose a lot of money. The advice is to wait for a time when mempool does not contain too many transactions, such as weekends, then transfer your money to a wallet that allows users to set the fee they want. You can google to check which e-wallet platform provides customers with the above feature, while on the desktop, there are two prominent names that support self-ordering fees: Bitcoin Core and Electrum.
