eth_getTransactionByHash

How to use it

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum

import { TatumSDK, Base, Network } from "@tatumio/tatum";

const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Base>({ network: Network.BASE });

const tx = await tatum.rpc.getTransactionByHash(
  "0x48e0232d926a32d220feb670db77936c0a69db7a23c09c7e49bd63b9b2b16388"
);

await tatum.destroy(); // Destroy Tatum SDK - needed for stopping background jobs

Overview

eth_getTransactionByHash is an method that allows you to query transaction details based on its hash. This method is useful when you want to retrieve information about a specific transaction, such as its sender, receiver, value, and more. Common use cases include tracking transaction status, monitoring incoming transactions, or analyzing historical transaction data.

Parameters

The eth_getTransactionByHash method takes one parameter:

  • transactionHash: The hash of the transaction you want to retrieve. This should be a 32-byte hash string with a 0x prefix.

    • Example: "0x48e0232d926a32d220feb670db77936c0a69db7a23c09c7e49bd63b9b2b16388"

Return Object

The method returns a transaction object with the following fields:

  • hash: The hash of the transaction (32 bytes).

  • nonce: The number of transactions sent by the sender prior to this one (integer).

  • blockHash: The hash of the block in which the transaction was included (32 bytes), or null if the transaction is not yet mined.

  • blockNumber: The block number in which the transaction was included (integer), or null if the transaction is not yet mined.

  • transactionIndex: The index of the transaction in the block (integer), or null if the transaction is not yet mined.

  • from: The address of the sender (20 bytes).

  • to: The address of the receiver (20 bytes), or null for contract creation transactions.

  • value: The value transferred in the transaction, in wei.

  • gasPrice: The price of gas for the transaction, in wei.

  • maxFeePerGas - The maximum fee per gas set in the transaction.

  • maxPriorityFeePerGas - The maximum priority gas fee set in the transaction.

  • gas: The maximum amount of gas the transaction is allowed to consume.

  • input: The data payload of the transaction (string), or 0x for simple value transfers.
