I just want to remind new Bitcoiners to check mempool size before making any transaction.

Basically, anything below 30k-40k unconfirmed transactions means you don't have to pay high fees (let's say more than 100 satoshi per byte).

Today I paid ~30sat/byte and the transaction went through in 30 minutes.

Save yourself some coffee money and don't pay miners more than is necessary!
