Transactions will show as Pending until they have been confirmed and committed by the Ethereum network. 50 network confirmations are required to finalize a transactions.
Once a transaction is verified, its status will change from Pending to Confirmed. When a transaction is confirmed, it has been committed to the blockchain and cannot be reversed.
All Jibrel transactions rely on Jnode, the network’s dedicated Ethereum node service. When Jibrel users complete a transaction, it gets signed locally, ensuring your private keys are never shared, and then the encrypted transaction is broadcast to the Ethereum network.
With blockchain technology still in its nascent phase, nodes may lose sync with the rest of the network for short periods of time. During these periods, transactions may take longer to confirm than normal.
If your transaction has not been confirmed for over 45 minutes, it is likely that the transaction involved is facing one of the following issues:
The network is experiencing high volume: Sometimes there is a high volume of digital currency being sent globally, and there are more transactions than there is space available in each new block to include the transaction.
Insufficient fees (gas) to complete the transaction: All bitcoin transactions require a miner fee to be confirmed by the bitcoin network. When sending bitcoin you will be prompted to add a miner fee to make sure the transaction gets confirmed. If an insufficient fee is included, your transaction may never confirm.
