Mastering Custom Bitcoin Fees with Magic Eden Wallet

Gain finer control over your Bitcoin transactions by setting your desired fees.

Updated over a week ago

In the dynamic world of Bitcoin, transaction times can vary based on network congestion. Being able to customize your transaction fees in Magic Eden Wallet grants you more control over how quickly your transaction gets confirmed. This flexibility also offers a more tailored experience to fit your needs, whether you prioritize speed or cost savings.

Getting started with custom fees on Magic Eden Wallet

Accessing Bitcoin wallet

Start by opening the Magic Eden Wallet. From there, navigate to your Bitcoin wallet.

Initiate a transaction

When you're ready to prepare a Bitcoin transaction, simply click on the 'Send' icon. In this context, you'll be transferring Bitcoin.

Adjusting the network fee

Next, look for where the 'Network Fee in BTC' is displayed on the screen. By clicking on it, you will reveal further options to customize your transaction.

Tweaking the transaction fee

Upon clicking, you'll notice a slider. This intuitive tool allows you to adjust the urgency and cost of your transaction. If you slide to the left, you'll set a lower fee which might result in a slower confirmation time. Conversely, sliding to the right will set a higher fee, aiming for a faster confirmation.

If you're seeking exact precision, there's also an option to manually input your preferred fee. Simply set the desired amount, and when you're satisfied with your selection, click 'Done'.

Leveraging the benefits of custom fees

Activating and setting custom fees in the wallet also engages the RBF (Replace-by-Fee) feature. This function grants users the ability to "bump up" a transaction fee if they find their initial fee was too low and their transaction isn't confirming as quickly as desired. Furthermore, the batched transactions feature becomes available, optimizing the process when sending multiple transactions.

A note on transaction speeds

It's worth mentioning that Bitcoin transactions can inherently take longer to confirm than those on networks like SOL or ETH. This is due to the fundamental differences in the design and infrastructure of each blockchain. If you're accustomed to the speed of SOL or ETH transactions, Bitcoin's pace might feel a bit slower. However, this is entirely normal. Don't be alarmed if your Bitcoin transaction doesn't get confirmed as swiftly as you might expect on other networks.With Magic Eden Wallet's custom fee feature, you have an additional tool to influence the speed to some extent, but always remember that Bitcoin operates on its own timeline.

Remember, in the vast realm of Bitcoin, being in control of your transaction fees can be the difference between swift confirmations and prolonged waits. Magic Eden's Web3 Wallet empowers you with this control, ensuring you always have the best transaction experience tailored to your preferences.
