Disclaimer: I have sifted through endless reddit feeds and blogs and forums and cant really find what im looking for. Hoped someone could just give me a quick explanation.
As a lamen with regards to the coding side of things what is (or is there even?) a solution to this massive backlog of unconfirmed transactions? Is there no mechanism to make it easier to mine block, shorten time between blocks and so speed everything up? Miners would be able to make their - currently - huge fees solving more blocks instead of charging loads for a single block and the backlog would start to reduce.
…Now that you’ve stopped giggling…
I get that im not understanding how this really works so any simple explantion would be greatly appreciated… or even a link to a ‘lamens terms’ explanation somewhere.
