Bitcoin transaction confirmation delay was caused by attack
The delay of transaction confirmations faced by Bitcoin network users in the past 24 hours was caused by the attack, forklog website reported.
The core of the attack is the following: transactions involving small sums with high fees put off ordinary transfers.
The greatest amount of unconfirmed transactions happened in the middle of yesterday. Around 70 000 operations were waiting for confirmation.
Previously, such a situation happened last November. Despite some inconvenience, transaction delays should not be the reason for panic, the publication reminds.
