Wallets Which Support Replace-By-Fee (RBF) Fee Bumping

[2023–08–16: Full-RBF effectively has arrived. What this means is that even if you used a wallet that did not support RBF, or did not have it enabled when you created your transaction, …. as long as you have the keys you can still do RBF on that transaction. More on this coming soon.]

Beginning from the year 2020 there have been numerous extended periods of time that bitcoin transaction activity will exceed the supply of space in new blocks on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Transactions compete to be included in the next block solved by a miner based on the amount of the Bitcoin network transaction fee that the transaction offers to pay. Transactions whose transaction fee offer isn’t competitive enough will sit in the mempool, waiting for miners to clear out the transactions that had paid a higher fee.

Being able to bump up the transaction fee on a transaction is useful to help rescue a time-sensitive transaction, or as a strategy to pay less in fees. If your wallet supports replace-by-fee (RBF), and that support is enabled for a transaction, you can feel comfortable choosing the lower-end of the transaction fee range. If the transaction doesn’t confirm soon enough for you, you can simply bump the fee later using RBF.

The wallets with RBF support (that I know of):

Hardware wallets with RBF:

Non-custodial exchange wallets with RBF:

  • HodlHodl lets you do RBF on the escrow funding transaction
