For the last few months, I have really been trying to learn more and more about Bitcoin, and have to gotten to know it pretty good, except for a couple of things that are confusing.
I watch the unconfirmed transaction pretty often, and that helps me decide, if it is a good time to deposit, send, withdraw, etc. I like to use bitcoin when there are a low number of unconfirmed transactions, so it gets to where I want it to go faster, but lately it's been the opposite
Example: Yesterday, I made a deposit with 6500 unconfirmed, and it took 4 hours to finally get confirmed. I did not use the advance send because of the low number unconfirmed. Even slow to get to Blockchain from coinbase. Today I send with 38,000 and everything hits instantly. Am I missing something, or do all of you agree it does not make any sense. Curious to know if this happens to anyone else. I know it gets delayed a lot, but it seems to be the opposite of what you think would happen.
