How long do transactions take to confirm?

Once you upload a file to Akord, you can immediately view a cached version of the file while in the background we're sending the file to Arweave.

If you go straightaway to the file menu and select "View transaction", you will likely be greeted with a message from viewblock saying the file is not found.

Don't panic! It takes some time for the Arweave network to confirm a transaction. The exact time varies and depends on a number of factors:

  • File size

  • Transaction rate on Akord's side

  • Arweave network - if the network is processing many transactions at that time then it will take longer to confirm your file.

Under normal circumstances you should expect your file to be confirmed and accessible on viewblock in ~15 minutes.

If you do not see your file after 1 day, please contact us on the help channel in our Discord.
