How Can I Check the Status of My Ethereum (ETH) or Tether (USDT) Transaction?

Ethereum and Tether transactions on Paxful or externally rarely fail but you can always check if your transactions went through.

When you send ETH or USDT from one wallet to another, you can check the status of the transaction through Etherscan for ETH and Ethereum based Tether (ERC-20), and Tronscan for Tron based USDT (TRC-20). Check out the steps below to get started:

Each transaction has a transaction ID (also known as a transaction hash). The IDs generally look like a bunch of random numbers and letters and looking something like this:

  • 0x931d387731bbbc988b312206c74f77d004d6b84

To find your transaction ID in your Paxful wallet:

  1. Log in to your Paxful account and head to your walletusdt_send_out_step_1.png
  2. Scroll down to your Tether or Ethereum transactions at the bottom of the page and select “all transactions” to see your full transaction historyusdt_send_out_step_2.png
  3. Once you find the transaction you’re looking for, copy the transaction IDusdt_sent_stp_3.0.png

Once you have the transaction ID:

  1. Head over to or
  2. Paste in the transaction ID
  3. From there, you can track your transaction. It usually takes 12 confirmations (it can take up to 30 on some platforms) for your transaction to complete, so hang tight!
