How Long Will I Wait?

Typically, BTC Nitro customers use our service because they don’t want to wait any longer for their transaction to be confirmed and because they don’t know how long it might take if left to confirm in the normal way.

Because there are so many things which affect blockchain confirmation times, it is not possible to provide an estimate of how long any transaction will take to be confirmed i.e we can’t predict it either.

Variables such as the size of the mempool, mining pool hashrates and block difficulty all play a part in determining how long you will need to wait. As all of these things are not in our control, we can’t hurry up or do anything to confirm your transaction more quickly than this. Once we submit your transaction to the mining pools, they will make their best effort to include it in a block that they will mine.

The only guidance we can provide is based on historical confirmation wait times which are:

๐Ÿ•ย  32% of accelerated transactions are confirmed within 1 hour
๐Ÿ•—ย  54% of accelerated transactions are confirmed within 8 hours
๐Ÿ•›ย  96% of accelerated transactions are confirmed within 24 hours

In any case, the fee you payed us is guaranteed and if weโ€™re not successful within 24 hours, you can request a refund using the form on the support page.
