I quit bitcoin after 2 years investing due high fee transactions and it was a relief.
Not only due the fee transaction, but also about the posts I've been seeing from the core, they are acting up like little kids.
I'm just a developer who loves cryptocurrency, and as you guys can see from my last posts here on reddit I got in a lot of trouble due the high fees market, I panicked thinking I wouldn't be able to retrieve my money back, so I paid $10 dolar fee to get out of this game.
After I paid that much of a fee, I got all my transactions confirmed, even the ones I was complaining here as you can see in my reddit.
(Steam gave my money back in credit in the steam store due the double buy on the same game, thanks bitcoin...)
Also, I'm not lying just to support some ideia here since I noticed there's a fight with another sub-reddit(/r/Bitcoin), I actually identified with this sub-reddit because here we talk about the problems.
You can check all my spendings, I used only one wallet(I know):
It's not a lot of money, but it was something to me.
And it's all gone anyway, I withdraw everything and sold in the bitcoin market. And I was so happy that I did.
I'm not saying I won't be back, but I sure won't be while we still have this problem of high fees, ages to confirm a simple transaction, block size, etc..
Look, I want to love bitcoin, but things are not helping. I'll be doing acourse about cryptocurrency on the coursera to be able to know what I'm really doing next time, if anyone want to check it out too here's the link:
I'm looking into Ethereum right now, seems good project, but I won't invest until I have more knowledge about the topic, it was some scary and stressed days this week.
