Why does it take a few minutes for my transaction to be confirmed?

  • Updated

Since NFTs and ordinals on our marketplace are secured by Bitcoin, pending transactions aren’t officially confirmed until an anchor Bitcoin block validates the transaction. While this takes about 10 minutes on average, transactions can be confirmed faster or slower than this based on when it is included in an anchor block.

You can speed up your transaction if it is taking an especially long time to be included in a block; this can be done via your wallet by upping the fees, but this assumes multiple blocks have passed without your transaction being included.
