Why can't I see my transaction in the blockchain?

You can view most digital currency transactions on the network's respective blockchain, which records and verifies the legitimacy of transactions. However, when transferring from a Coinbase account to another Coinbase account, the transactions occur off the blockchain. This makes confirmation instantaneous, causes transactions to be fee-less, and allows for micro-transactions as small as one satoshi (0.00000001 bitcoin). For these "off-chain" transactions, you won't be able to view the bitcoin transfer in the blockchain, and there won't be an "Advanced Details" link when you click on the transaction.

 

Still can't find what you're looking for?
