I'm just starting out with alt-coins, and have executed a few transactions with both bitcoin and dogecoin and they all seem to "go through" in less than a minute. I've transferred small amounts between wallets (my own) done some gambling and everything seems to transact within 2 minutes tops.
I just made a small deposit to cryptsy and it took 90 minutes to get confirmed. I'm wondering why it took so long this time. (FWIW I do have 3 wallets up right now, Bitcoin-QT, Multibit, and Dogecoin-QT, if that matters.) My network connection seems to be working normally.
My wallet indicated it was confirming (1 of 6, 2 of 6, etc.) and I've never seen that before.
Any clues, anyone?
