My whole balance locked after sending money. I have read about monero locking balance on the internet. Balance blocking is only monero blockchain feature or all cryptocurrencies? Bitcoin locks money too? I want to ask about solutions. What if I received one transaction 1000 XMR once and I want to send coins to several different wallets? Do I have to wait about 25 minutes between transactions? Is there a way to make it more comfortable and faster? Hooe for your help!

New outputs are locked for 10 blocks (unless the sender selects more), which is about 20 minutes on average. If all your monero is in a single output, then sending it will lock your entire balance for that number of blocks. There are two ways to avoid having to wait when sending to multiple recipients:

  • ensure your wallet is made up of several outputs, so only what you send gets locked
  • send to several recipients in the same transaction

For the first case, you can send to yourself, ie:

transfer MYADDRESS 10 MYADDRESS 10 MYADDRESS 10 MYADDRESS 10 MYADDRESS 10

This will send 50 monero to yourself, and you'll end up with 5 outputs of 10 monero each.

For the second case, something similar:

transfer ADDRESS1 10 ADDRESS2 5 ADDRESS3 2

The change will still be locked for 10 blocks, but you've paid the three recipients already.
