Confirmations

The inclusion of a transaction in a block. A bitcoin or ethereum transaction is considered unconfirmed until it has been included in a block on the blockchain, at which point it has one confirmation. Each additional block is another confirmation.

Here are the number of confirmations that Coinbase requires to consider a transaction final for some of the assets on our platform.
