How Do Bitcoin Transaction Fees Work

  • Bitcoin transaction fees increase as transaction size and network volume rise.
  • Miners receive transaction fees when a new block has been validated, supporting the profitability of mining.
  • The Bitcoin halving increases the computational power and energy required to mine new blocks, lowering the subsidy of each block.
