How I can calculate Estimated Confirmation Duration


Can someone give me a formula to calculate Estimated Confirmation Duration of a pending transaction like etherscan.io do?

At EthGasStation.info, they have this calculator. On youtube you can find many tutorials how to properly use this tool, although it should be self explanatory.

    Thanks! But I want to calculate Estimated Confirmation Duration in my own block explorer, so I need a math formula. – Bach Duong Jul 16 '18 at 15:58
  • So it's a private net ? Then it's easy, it all depends on the amount of miners and transactions. If the block size fits all the transactions, you will hardly ever wait longer than a maximum of two blocks, often times it will only be one. – Nikita Fuchs Jul 16 '18 at 20:06
