This is a complete beginner’s guide to Bitcoin fees in plain English. Learn what Bitcoin fees are, how they are calculated, how to free a “stuck” transaction and more.

Bitcoin transaction fees (sometimes referred to as mining fees) allow users to prioritize their transaction over others and get included faster into Bitcoin’s ledger of transactions known as the blockchain.
