Every single transaction on the blockchain is assigned a unique transaction ID, also known as a transaction hash. Often, the terms can be found with the abbreviations tx or txn substituted for transaction.

Explaining the cryptography behind this number in full would require a few more articles. However, for our purposes, it will do to simply understand this hash number as a condensed form of the transaction’s data — in other words, details such as the addresses involved, the timestamp, and the quantity of tokens exchanged. 

Option 1: View transactions by token type

Accessible from the wallet view, which displays all the token types previously added or held by the wallet, this method is useful if you want to distinguish between tokens. 

From here, tap the relevant token type to bring up its transactions, and select the one you’re looking for. Scroll down to see your activity, and then tap on the transaction to view its details

Option 2: Transaction history

Tap the Transaction history in the tab bar to view all activity. After finding the transaction you want to investigate, tap it to bring up its details. Whichever method you use, you’ll be presented with basic information and the transaction status. At the bottom you’ll see an option to view on Etherscan. Select this to open Etherscan within the app’s native browser. You’ll then be able to easily locate the transaction ID listed as ‘transaction hash’ on Etherscan.

As with Extension, the block explorer links will update according to the network you’re using at the time.
