What's the difference between total and available?

I just made a deposit from another exchange and it shows up in the "total" column on the balances page, but it does not show up in the "available" column. I had an open order, so I cancelled it, but I'm still not able to trade with my "total" amount. Is there a delay or something?

It turns out it was due to a delay. I checked two FAQs for beginners and didn't see mention of the delay.

 Hi,

 

The total column will include any pending deposits as well as any balance you have available to spend. When you make a deposit to Cryptopia (or any other exchange) it needs to be confirmed on its respective network before it will be in your available balance. Similar to how a bank will ocassionally show uncleared funds but not allow you to spend them until they have been fully processed. I hope this helps. I will look at adding something about this into our FAQ.

 

Thanks,

Jerry
