Well Im all ready for the fork Tuesday. Though the transactions fees are a killer. lost $15 just moving BTC around. On top of that my counterwallet won't let me empty it. I have to leave $50 worth of BTC behind "For the miners" it says. What BS! Hopefully this BTC Gold will be worth the $$ or unnecessarily "lost" coinsage
Yeah you've just experienced one of the major problems with BTC right now, which is part of the reasons we are seeing these forks happen. Fixed fees, but constantly increasing in value... Sorta makes micro-transactions impossible because no one wants to spend $4 to send $40 lol.
Hopefully segwit2x will help a little bit.., Also, you can send your funds lower priority (which will also be a lower transaction fee.., helps a little)
