Although network fees aren’t fixed, they are competitive. This is because the space available for transactions in a block is limited; meaning that to get your transaction processed quickly, you will have to outbid other users. Bitkoin Africa uses an estimated fee to ensure transactions are processed quickly for as little as possible.
How are Network Fees estimated?
Our estimated Network Fees are set by taking all transactions in the last 30 blocks and calculating the lowest possible fee (per KB) that has more than a 75% chance of getting into the first block.
