Configure Transaction Nonces


2 min

Users conducting Stacks transactions in Leather are able to configure the nonce associated with their transaction.

A nonce is a sequential ID number that helps determine the order of transaction processing by miners. They must always occur sequentially (eg. a transaction with nonce 8 will not be confirmed until a transaction with nonce 7 has been processed).

Leather automatically assigns the correct nonce to ensure that each nonce is only used once per address. However, there may be circumstances when a user needs to edit the nonce for a transaction (such as overriding a previous transaction).

How to Edit Nonces in Leather

To edit a nonce in Leather when conducting a Stacks transaction:

  1. Click the “Edit nonce” option located on the bottom right of your transaction detail screen

  2. Enter your preferred nonce and hit “Apply”

If you’d like to check the nonce for a specific transaction, you can do so by visiting the Stacks Explorer.
