We know they can be confusing. As Charter Rode is built on a blockchain (distributed ledger) like Bitcoin, each log entry you make becomes a transaction that needs to be eventually committed to the final distributed ledger the (Sailing Resume Blockchain). Every log entry goes through its own journey through the below process to eventually be committed on Charter Rode and available for everyone in the world to see. Until your logbook entry is in the final confirmed status, it has not yet been securely and permanently added to the Sailing Resume Blockchain.
|Pending Verification||All new logbook entries start in this status. If you select self verification, the logbook entry immediately moves onto pending payment. If you select crewmate or Charter Rode verification, your logbook entry stays in this status until it is verified, and then moves into payment pending, or rejected and moves into rejected status.|
|Pending Payment||Once a logbook entry has been verified, it enters this status. If your wallet has sufficient CRT funds, then the CRT charges for the transaction are deducted from your wallet and the transaction is moved into the unconfirmed status.|
|Rejected||Logbook entries will only enter the rejected status if they are rejected by the verification authority, either a crewmate, Charter Rode, or some other valid verification authority that you have asked to verify your logbook entry. If you look at the transaction details, the reason why it was rejected is provided. In many cases you are able to re-submit your transaction after resolving the issue which will put the logbook entry back into the pending verification status.|
|Voided||Any logbook entry that is not yet in the confirmed status may be voided by you. Once the logbook entry is voided, no further processing will be completed. NOTE: If you void a logbook entry that is in the unconfirmed status, all CRT used to process and verify the transaction WILL NOT be refunded to your wallet.|
|Unconfirmed||When a logbook entry is in this status it means it is ready to be securely and permanently added to Charter Rode (the distributed ledger). Groups of up to 1,000 or more logbook entries across all users of Charter Rode are grouped together to form the next block on Charter Rode. Your logbook entry will stay in this status until there is enough Unconfirmed logbook entries to form and fill a new block on Charter Rode.|
|Confirmed||This is the final status for all logbook entries. This status means that your logbook entry has been securely and permanently added to the Sailing Resume Blockchain for the entire world to see. Your logbook entry is grouped with other users' entries to form a block on the Sailing Resume Blockchain.|
