I came upon the shortcut xact standing for transaction in Postgres database:

The word transaction is often abbreviated as xact.

Then I found that this is probably not Postgres-specific, and it is also used elsewhere:

TR: Used in the banking industry.
TRX: Used in the cryptocurrency industry.
XACT: Used in the business world.

How is "XACT" similar to "Transaction" so it became its abbreviation?
