What Is Nonce?

A nonce is an abbreviation for “number only used once,” which, in the context of cryptocurrency mining, is a number added to a hashed—or encrypted—block in a blockchain that, when rehashed, meets the difficulty level restrictions. The nonce is the number that blockchain miners are solving for. When the solution is found, the blockchain miners are offered cryptocurrency in exchange.

I think CS is referring to the temporary number given when logging into work remotely… assuming your company uses 2FA (which it should).
