In the Monero URI, is the tx_description stored on the blockchain? If so, is it encrypted? What is the maximum length of this field?

1 Answer 1


A monero: URI is not a transaction, it is a descriptor for how to create a transaction with some particular parameters.

The description is not stored in the blockchain. Of course, some software might decide to put this in a transaction, but that's on it.

It is not encrypted.

There is no defined maximum length, but some parsers might have limits.
