How to confirm the fact of sending funds in Monero blockchain?

Monero uses 2 types of “special” private keys: a private send key (used to send funds from your wallet) and a private viewing key that allows you to decrypt transaction and see the amount of funds sent.

Using this private viewing key, sender address, and Monero software, you can decrypt the transaction and confirm the sending.

The speed of the Monero blockchain

1. Monero is considered a fast blockchain, the average block exit time is about two minutes.

2. The block size in the Monero blockchain is elastic and is formed by the median of the size of the last "n" blocks. At the time of writing, the block size is 30 KB.

Commissions on the Monero blockchain

1. Transactions in the Monero network are very cheap, even in times of high network load (when a large number of transactions are sent to the network), the transaction cost is only a few cents. 

2. Like Bitcoin, Monero uses the Proof-of-work algorithm, which means it uses the computing power of many computers around the world to maintain the blockchain.

When will Bitcoin be credited to your wallet?

We send Bitcoin immediately after the exchange is completed, but the time before the first confirmation depends on several parameters:

  1. Commissions. In our exchanger miner fee is set so that the transaction was one of the first.
  2. Frequency of occurrence of blocks. Blocks in the Bitcoin network appear on average every 10 minutes, but it happens that a new block does not appear for an hour or more. In this case, the Commission may lose its relevance and the transaction may go a little longer than planned.

How to estimate the confirmation time of the transaction?

There are several ways to estimate the time of confirmation of the transaction, but you need to understand that it is impossible to calculate it accurately since many factors affect the passage of your transaction, you can read more in our article.

  • The easiest way to find out when the first confirmation of the network is to go in the service of collecting statistics from BitcoinFees Earn.com there you can see when your transaction gets into a block, depending on the fee which you sent it.

  • You can also use the Explorer Blockchair.com where you can see the priority of the transaction. The first number is what place in the queue is a transaction, the second how many transactions are pending (e.g. priority 1676/9495). Each block includes approximately 2500 transactions, we see that our transaction is in 1676 place in the queue, and therefore must pass in the next block.

It is important to note that to increase the number of confirmations, a new block must appear, blocks in bitcoin can go from 1 to 75 minutes. The average time of Bitcoin block appearance is 10 minutes.

You can read more in our article about the confirmation time in the Bitcoin network.

When can I spend the funds received?

  • If you request funds for a personal Bitcoin wallet, you can dispose of them immediately after one confirmation of the network.
  • If funds are sent to an exchange or other services where there is a need for multiple confirmations, then you will need to wait until the transaction receives the required number of confirmations.

How does the number of confirmations in the Bitcoin network increase?

After the first confirmation, they will only grow with newly mined blocks. If there is no next block for a long time, then the number of confirmations up to this point will remain unchanged.
