For security reasons, we require a digital asset/cryptocurrency deposit to receive a number of confirmations on its blockchain before the funds can be credited to your account. 

What are confirmations? 

When a transaction is broadcasted to the network, it has to wait to be included in a block by the miners. Once a transaction has been included in a mined block, the transaction has received 1 confirmation. With each subsequent block, the number of confirmations increases for the transaction.

Why are there confirmation requirements? 

To avoid the risks of double spending, funds aren’t credited until a certain number of confirmations have taken place (as listed below).

The more confirmations received, the more permanent / irreversible the transaction is.

How long do confirmations take?

Each block is found at a different rate depending on the blockchain.

For example, on the Bitcoin blockchain, a block is mined on average every 10 minutes, and Bitcoin.com Exchange only credits Bitcoin deposits to a client’s account after 1 confirmation. 

However, sometimes it can take Bitcoin miners 30 or even 60 minutes to mine a single block (1 confirmation). This is outside of our control.
