Cash is fast

Bitcoin transactions are broadcast to the blockchain network instantly, so anyone can view your transaction without any confirmations. But most processes want it confirmed.

Some online exchanges and digital wallets require three confirmations, which will take 30 minutes to be written into three blocks (or longer if the blockchain is running slowly).

Since Coin Cloud machines only require one confirmation when buying or selling, you’ll likely only be waiting 10 to 15 minutes to see a purchase in your wallet, or hold cash in your hands. But what if you could make it so you can just walk up and grab your money?
