Starknet API method that returns the nonce for a given account.

  • address — the string of the address of the account.


  • result — the nonce of the account, represented as a hexadecimal string.

Use case

A practical use case for starknet_getNonce is to retrieve the nonce for an account before sending a transaction. The nonce is an important factor in transactions, as it determines the order in which the network processes transactions from a given account. For example, if an account has a nonce of 10, the next transaction sent from that account should include a nonce of 11 to ensure that it is processed after all previous transactions.
