Bitcoin is Eating Itself

Transaction priority is another factor that determines fees and transaction priority is a function of the age and value of the inputs. So it’s *not* the case that nothing can be done. You can let these coins sit and then spend them in the future. You can combine them with higher priority inputs. You can spend them with a low fee and then wait a few days for the transaction to confirm. There *are* options. The author hasn’t done even the most basic research about this topic.

Also FYI these coins are mostly from faucets which have long been scams of sorts. Wallets do *not* create small inputs like these. That would be a bug in the wallet software.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
