When a transaction is confirmed it is included in a block. Each block that occurs after serves as an additional confirmation. The default number of confirmations for a Dimecoin transaction to be fully confirmed is set at 6. The more confirmations a transaction has, the more reliable it becomes. Transactions become immutable once they reach full confirmation.
