Reject a transaction


There are certain scenarios where user want to reject a certain transaction. For example,

  1. Wrong operation. User input some wrong parameters during transaction initialization.

  2. Disagreement among MSafe managers.

  3. Transaction is not able to be executed because of expiration.'

To reject a transaction, user can either do it in Web App or CLI. The limitation of transaction reject is as follows:

  1. Only transactions in the pending status can be rejected.

  2. Reject a transaction is basically submitting a conflicting transaction with the same sequence number as the transaction to be rejected. In our specific implementation, reject is basically submitting a transaction that calls an empty function momentum_safe::do_nothing.

  3. There is a competing mechanism for executing conflicting transactions - only the first transaction that have collected enough signatures and submit to blockchain can be finalized.

  4. The moment when one conflicting transaction is confirmed on blockchain, other conflicting transactions will become stale immediately.
