hi

what are you doing while your are waiting for a confirmation of a transaction.

i am reading here and posting some stuff.

how funny, exactly the same over here. made some cleaning up on some small wallets (imported the keys on electrum) and now i am waiting for almost 2 hours without a confirmation.
the fee was high (50 cents), but one output is very small (600 sat.) which seems to be the problem. this never happened before so this is new to me.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

I just transfer the funds and keep it in mind that it will be processed within a few minutes so I do not bring out time for the wait but I continue to complete my other works and tasks and a after a few minutes i often come and check that where it reached.

I also come to this forum and continue my participation in the bitcoin community and in that time the confirmation has taken place and I see the bitcoin transferred to the target address, the time of confirmation is not much longer it is only smaller time so I do not bother with that.

waiting for bitcoin transaction confirmation is really a big problem. some time it make you confused, because it take so much time that make you worry that if you have may not sent the bitcoin to some where else. there the bitcoin transaction conformation process should be make fast and without any delay.

This is brilliant! Not very tuneful, but I'm sure there's some artistic merit  Grin

This is not a big problem for me,I usually don't wait for the confirmation of a transaction,most of the times I close my wallet or even turn off my PC if I don't have something else to do.If the transaction is important then I'm killing some time watching videos,reading articles or browsing bitcointalk and check every five minutes until it's done.

I entertain myself while watching some series or YouTube videos. Every 5-10 minutes I check whether or not my transaction has a confirmation already. That being said, I only check once every few minutes for confirmations when it's an important transaction. When it's not important, I'll either look back after a few hours, or some times even the next day. I know it will get confirmed since I always add appropriate fees.

A majority of the time I am going and doing something else, like reading things or looking at some information related to whatever I am waiting for.

Worst case I just walk away and do something else while I wait for the confirmation to go through, but a majority of the time I'm aiming to do at least something with my time.

while waiting for transaction confirmation, sometimes I post here to get some coins. I also open my facebook, chat with my friend, and sometimes I do my college assignments, clean my room or another home activities, that's busy enough.

the same for me, i just do transactions to other websites usually so the confirmations come at the same time on all of the websites

when the first time i sent payment, i keep on checking every 5 minutes, but now i just let it be, because sometimes the transaction can take up to 3 hours, so if i keep on checking, it will waste my time, and so far every transaction i sent dont have any problem, so every time i send i just pray nothing bad will happen
