While waiting for cofnirmation what I am doing is that I am surfing in the social medias like facebook and as well as watching some youtube videos. And if that is still enough I am researching some good trend to come with bitcoin and as well as what are the new trends in the technology. Because I need to keep on updated.

I  also do the same.
I read some bitcoin`s blogs too, like http://cointelegraph.com

I honestly gave up waiting for confirmations when I do transactions.  As long as I see that the transactions are pending, I walk away for I know it is on its way!  Has anyone ever had a transaction that was denied or reversed?

hi

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

i am reading here and posting some stuff.

I refresh the blockchain page to see if there is a new block mined and if my transaction was included on that block.

Sometimes i read the news about crypto, IT or even local newspapers, but since the transaction fees are good I wouldn't worry too much.

Reversal is impossible, but denied can happen. I seriously doubt that any zero fee (i.e. free) transactions get confirmed at all these days, and I know from experience that using the relay minimum (1000 satoshis) can take days. I guess 1000 satoshis is kind of like the new zero fees tx's.

what i am doing is get relax for a while with my glass of coffee and watching some movie, beside that i make a chat with my group on WA and BBM. i don't take too much thinking how long confirmations will be finished, because when i see there is any transaction i receive in my wallet, and its just show 0 confirmations, i know it will finished by itself, so better i used my time for doing other activities.

Doing other things chatting with friends while waiting for confirmation, we do not know how long we will wait for it, and that's part of the bitcointransaction some times need more time to wait for it.

...

I am mostly online when waiting on a confirmation.  Typically when I send or receive BTC it is "important", so usually I do not leave to go on errands or similar.  If I am using bitmixer.io, that takes more time (call it 30 minutes for everything to clear), then perhaps I will leave to go do something "productive".

Often I check the financial markets or financial websites (Zero Hedge, etc.) while waiting.  Or even post here at bitcointalk...

Whenever there's a delay in confirmations even if I did pay the right amount of fee, I'd suspect an attack on the network and usually head towards /r/bitcoin on reddit to seek information on whether others are facing similar issues. If it's just me, I'd usually wait for the transaction to confirm and carry on with my usual work browsing videos or watching documentaries online or a couple of TV shows.

I just go do something else for a while and check back every now and then. I remember way back to my first few transactions though, I used to just stare at the confirmation page on the edge of my seat, refreshing and then wooting when the first confirmation finally happened. lol.

This is the most logic thing to do honestly. What else then find something else to do and check back in 1 hour. Sometimes I write it down (if it's a big amount) because yes there is no saying how long you will have to wait exactly. It's all a matter of time. So next time when you are waiting, try to find another job.

In the mean time you open a blockchain.info window with a autorefresh plugin. So you can check it while doing other tasks.

hi

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

i am reading here and posting some stuff.
It isn't very long time, I noticed that exchanges and Casinos transactions are very fast, and most of my transactions are from exchanges or casions to my wallet, thus I don't wait a lot, in this time I often read some news on twitter or on Bitcoin news sites, or I make some tweets.

There is a bunch of things to do, depends in what kind of mood I`m. Generally same like most people here, I`m reading news here, or on some social network, commenting, watching youtube, playing some free roll poker tournament.
I don`t think it`s horrible to wait transaction to confirm, I have patience. Usually when I`m sending bitcoin from wallet to casino, or otherwise it`s pretty fast. In some casino deposit is almost instant, and withdraw is going pretty fast also on some places.

I do nothing special when waiting for a confirmation, i just continue my work online and sometimes i disconnect and go offline and when i return back i find the transaction already confirmed.

While I'm waiting for confirmation I do usual daily things: reading news, browsing facebook, watching youtube videos and sports broadcasts. I don't really care about confirmation, because when I see pending transaction, I'm sure that I will receive money soon.

Hmm. Been a years or more since I started using Bitcoin and sending Bitcoin is part of my daily life (not really, maybe weekly?). I don't really mind the waiting times for normal transactions time and I usally do things that I normally do while waiting for my transactions to be accepted into the Bitcoin Blockchain system. These includes but not limited to, gaming, reading, posting and watching videos.
