    If you're selling goods via BTC, make sure you do NOT give the buyer the goods until there's at least 1 confirmation. Apparently
    there's a way for buyers to retract the payment if there is 0 confirmations and they're using certain wallets. Wasn't aware of this as I've never had any issues and just gave buyer the goods since it was taking a while to confirm and the funds ended up disappearing from my wallet balance the next day. Just a friendly warning :)

    This is called a double spend. It's been an issue with BTC for months and months now. Happened to me a few times.
    ALSO, BTC confirmations are at an all time high right now - over 200k unconfirmed transactions. This means, unless the buyer puts a large fee, it will take days to get even one confirmation.
