If you’ve already sent a transaction and it gets stuck, that transaction can, in some cases, be made to “jump the queue.” The easiest way to make your transaction jump the queue is using an option called Opt-In Replace-by-Fee (Opt-In RBF). This lets you re-send the same transaction, but with a higher fee.
