Blockchain Payment Verification

We will get a better understanding of how the payment can be verified in the "blockchain" network throughout this article. Verification of a payment on a blockchain can be carried out in three straightforward steps:

  1. Note down the transaction ID that you will receive from your exchange wallet.
  2. Put your transaction ID in the blockchain. A website can provide access to blockchain.
  3. Verify the details of a transaction and check if it has been confirmed.

Types of Blockchain Payment Verification

There are two different kinds of payment verification in blockchain technology:

  1. Simple payment verification
  2. Full payment verification

Now, let's move on to providing a concise explanation of each of these two forms of blockchain payment verification, beginning with "simple payment verification."

Simple Payment Verification

Using simple payment verification, a client does not have to download the entire chain in order to quickly determine whether or not the transaction was recorded on the blockchain.

Simple payment verification requires the client to download only the block headers, which are considerably smaller than the full block. To verify that a transaction is included in a block, the SPV client requires a Markle branch as proof of inclusion. SPV clients provide excellent security.

Features of Simple Payment Verification

The following is a list of some of the most frequently encountered characteristics of blockchain's simple payment verification:

  • The longest chain can easily be detected.
  • The user only needs to save a copy of the block header of the longest proof of work chain and retrieve the Markle branch, which then connects the transaction to the block.
  • The user can see that the transaction has been approved by the network node by tagging it at a point in the chain.

Now that we've covered that, let's move on to the next type of blockchain payment verification, which is called "full payment verification," and discuss it in a nutshell.

Full Payment Verification

Full payment verification is usually required by heavyweight wallets. They would verify that the bitcoin used in the transaction came from the mined block. This can be verified by scanning the blockchain transaction by transaction until the source is found. A bitcoin wallet application is used to download the complete blockchain, and it can take several days, which is inconvenient.

Time Required for Payment Verification

Usually, the time required for payment verification in blockchain varies from 5 minutes to 2 hours if all the procedures have been done properly. If a problem arises, this process could take up to five working days.
