When the coinprism API reports asset balances for a given bitcoin address, it returns a balance and an unconfirmed balance.

How many block confirmations does coinprism require to consider a transaction "confirmed"?  Is a transaction considered confirmed as soon as it is incorporated into a block, or not until the transaction's block is buried under the customary 6 confirmations?  Is there a way to control that confirmation criteria in the API REST request?

Thanks,
-Danny

The transaction is confirmed when it has at least one confirmation. Unconfirmed transactions are not yet in a block.
