getTransactionProof

How to use it

// Import required libraries and modules from Tatum SDK
import { TatumSDK, AlgorandAlgod, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum';

// Initialize the Tatum SDK for Algorand
const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<AlgorandAlgod>({ network: Network.ALGORAND_ALGOD });

// Define the input parameters in a single object
const params = {
    round: ROUND_NUMBER,                   // Specify the round in which the transaction appears.
    txid: 'TRANSACTION_ID',                // Specify the transaction ID for which to generate a proof.
    format: 'json',                        // Optional: Configures whether the response object is JSON or MessagePack encoded. If not provided, defaults to JSON.
    hashtype: 'sha512_256'                  // Optional: The type of hash function used to create the proof, must be one of: sha512_256 or sha256.
};

// Generate a proof for a transaction in a block
const transactionProof = await tatum.rpc.getTransactionProof(params);

// Log the transaction proof
console.log('Transaction Proof:', transactionProof);

// Always destroy the Tatum SDK instance when done to stop any background processes
await tatum.destroy();

Overview

The getTransactionProof method allows you to get a proof for a transaction in a block.

Example Use Cases

  1. Transaction Verification: Developers can use this method to get a proof for a transaction in a block in order to verify the authenticity and integrity of the transaction.

Request Parameters

The getTransactionProof method requires the following parameters:

  • round (integer, required): Specify the round in which the transaction appears.

  • txid (string, required): Specify the transaction ID for which to generate a proof.

  • hashtype (enum: sha512_256, sha256, optional): The type of hash function used to create the proof, must be one of: sha512_256 or sha256.

  • format (enum: json, msgpack, optional): Configures whether the response object is JSON or MessagePack encoded. If not provided, defaults to JSON.

Return Object

The method returns an object representing the proof of the specified transaction in a block. The object includes the following properties:

  • hashtype (string): The type of hash function used to create the proof, must be one of: sha512_256 or sha256.

  • idx (integer): Index of the transaction in the block's payset.

  • proof (string): Proof of transaction membership.

  • stibhash (string): Hash of SignedTxnInBlock for verifying the proof.

  • treedepth (integer): Represents the depth of the tree that is being proven, i.e. the number of edges from a leaf to the root.

Please note that the structure of the returned object may change in different Algorand RPC versions.
