What is a transaction hash?

A blockchain transaction hash (also called a transaction ID) is a unique set of characters assigned to every transaction.


Blockchain explorers like etherscan.io or ethtx.info can be used to review a transaction. The transaction hash is best sent by copying/pasting from your wallet or a block explorer.


Sending screenshots of transactions can distort and pixelate the transaction ID characters. Sending screenshots may delay a support agent's resolution to your issue.



It's recommended to double check that you've copied the hash correctly.
