Balance vs. Unconfirmed?
How does a transaction get confirmation? How long does it normally take, and “where” are the unconfirmed Bitcoins?
I get that it's for security, but how does it make Bitcoin more secure? Does it mean it's possible to add coins to the Unconfirmed section of your wallet, and then have them rejected?
