What Is a Transaction ID (TXID)?

A Transaction ID (TXID) in the context of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Tether, is a unique identifier assigned to a specific transaction on the blockchain. It serves as a reference or proof that a transaction has occurred, allowing users to track and verify the details of a particular transaction within the blockchain's public ledger.


The TXID is typically a long string of alphanumeric characters, unique to that specific transaction. It is generated using cryptographic hash functions, making it practically impossible to alter or fake. Users can look up this TXID on blockchain explorers (websites or tools that provide detailed information about transactions and blocks) to track the progress and details of the transaction. Users can use the TXID to check the status of their transaction, see how many confirmations it has received, and verify that it was successfully processed. This provides transparency and security in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.



Where to find a Transaction ID (TXID) on centralized exchanges or wallets?


On centralized cryptocurrency exchanges, finding a Transaction ID (TXID) for a specific transaction may vary depending on the exchange platform. However, here are some general steps to help you find the TXID for a transaction on most centralized exchanges:


1. Access Transaction History: Once you're logged in, navigate to the section of the exchange's website or mobile app that provides access to your transaction history or account activity. This section may be labeled differently on different exchanges but is often found under headings like "Account," "Wallet," "Funds," or "Transaction History."


2. Locate the Specific Transaction: In the transaction history or account activity section, you should see a list of your recent transactions. Look for the specific transaction you are interested in, whether it's a deposit, withdrawal, trade, or any other transaction type.


3. View Transaction Details: Click on or select the specific transaction you want to get the TXID for. This action should bring up a detailed view of that transaction.


4. Find the TXID: Within the detailed view of the transaction, you should see information about the transaction, including the TXID. The TXID may be labeled as such or simply referred to as "Transaction ID." It is typically a long alphanumeric string.


5. Verify on the Blockchain Explorer: If you want to verify the transaction on the blockchain, you can paste the TXID into a blockchain explorer specific to the cryptocurrency you were dealing with (e.g., a TRONSCAN for USDT TRC20 transactions). This will allow you to see the transaction's status, confirmations, and other details on the public blockchain. Some exchanges also provide options to click on the TXID to open a blockchain explorer.
