When you look at the box in the image, the top one shows bitcoin was purchased with “Credit card” and it’s already available. You can see the amount of Bitcoin you own in the “Your Portfolio” section.

The bottom one in the red box is purchased with “Bank Account” on December 21st and it’s arriving on 12/30/2017.
That’s why you don’t see that on the “Your Portfolio” section yet. It will arrive on the day.
