Hey guys, guess I'm a complete noob
I've downloaded the Bitcoin client and have it on my system
I bought Bitcoins from Britcoin.co.uk, and had them sent to my Bitcoin ID 1BtY7jfRxij5V5SJEqa34Lc98kPf98KdRx
I didnt really do anything when I set this up but download and install the client, and use the ID it gave me, is this OK?
I ask because, Britcoin.co.uk shows it as "Completed"
I've been trying my best to wrap my head around everything I need to know, but still not sure what the "confirmations" and "blocks" refer to, just a vague idea.
It wasn't a huge amount (just 1.1 BTC)
How long can I expect to wait, and does my Bitcoin wallet have to be open all the time or will I just open it to find the 1.1 there.
Thanks a lot
Also not sure if it matters, got my wallet up right now, its showing "8 Connections" and something like 129628 blocks, constantly rising
What Britcoin says (copy pasta)
Withdrawing 1.1 BTC.
