I have been reading in different papers and comments these two concepts and I would like to know the difference between them(if there is, sometimes it is a bit confusing).
I understand that the block time is the period for collecting transactions, the time that to mine a block takes, and the confirmation time is the time to put a transaction in a block. I am not sure if it is correct. If it is true, is it possible to get the confirmation time of a transaction? What do these times depend on?
I know that there are more open questions here talking about this, but I do not get the concept very well and I cannot comment on the threads, so I would appreciate the help.
