Transactional finality is the guarantee that cryptocurrency transactions can’t be altered after they’ve been completed. It is used to measure the amount of time a user has to wait to receive confirmation that a transaction made on the blockchain won’t be changed, or canceled. On Avalanche®, transaction finality is usually around one second.
