What If Your Transaction ID Exists But Your Bitcoin Hasn’t Arrived?
Occasionally, transactions take more time to send. You may see the transaction ID on the Tokenview Block Explorer but the coin has yet to arrive in the recipient's wallet.
Don't worry, the transaction will eventually complete. But why do bitcoin transactions some times get delayed?
The Reasons are following:
- Different cryptocurrencies.
- Exchange requirements
- Blockchain maintenance
Regular Bitcoin Cash (BCH) transactions typically transact in seconds and, for larger amounts, they usually complete within an hour. However, Bitcoin Core (BTC) transactions have been known to take several days to complete when the network is busy.
Crypto exchanges have different requirements when it comes to how many confirmations they require. Until this number has been reached, you won’t see the Bitcoin in your wallet. You can check how many confirmations your exchange requires by reading their website.
Occasionally, blockchains undergo planned maintenance. During this time, transactions will be delayed as most wallets and exchanges temporarily freeze transfers. You’ll get advance notice of this and all transactions will complete once the maintenance is finished.
