1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Confirmations on: May 31, 2015, 04:42:52 AM
Hey all,

I'm curious about Bitcoin confirmations. I'm having a discussion with a friend and I'm sure there are tons of threads on this but what exactly is a confirmation? Is a confirmation a new block? Why do I get some confirmations done in a few minutes and other times t may take hours... Yesterday for example it took 15 minutes for 5 confirmations... Why does it happen faster sometimes?

Thanks much
