As Veriphi’s study shows, BTC users have spent millions of dollars on useless fees. The main reason for this is the lack of such optimization tools as blockchain batching and SegWit.

However, according to the data taken from the recent report and some cryptocurrency news, the leading virtual currency isn’t so money-saving as it may seem in terms of fees.
The lack of technologies leads to overpricing
The problem of high fees is obvious to those users who understand Bitcoin’s processes. The small size of blocks, and the absence of such important protocol update as SegWit, and the procedure of transaction batching become the reason for additional expenses (three dollars on average) for every BTC-based transaction.
