News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Hey, I finally bought bitcoins and deposited them into my wallet. The only problem I'm having is the transaction is listed, but it is greyed out and the Status is; 0/unconfirmed.

Do I need to do something else, or do I just have to be patient and it will confirm itself?

Thanks guys.  Smiley

Just be patient - how long have you been waiting?

Only about 30 minutes. It's now 2/unconfimred so it looks like I was just being impatient. I'm very new to this, so I get a bit paranoid.

First off, if it says 2/unconfirmed then you should be fine Smiley  Each confirmation comes from every block that is solved.  If miners' luck is low and blocks are being solved slowly, it takes more time for the transactions to be confirmed.

Second, in my opinion embrace your paranoia.  You may thank yourself for it later.  Bitcoin is new, growing, and carries higher risks.  I have done my research enough to know what most of those risks are.  It's better to be safe, ask questions and continually try to learn rather than to assume the safety of your assets.

Welcome aboard Smiley  Glad to hear new people are making Bitcoin transactions out there.
