How to use it

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum

import { TatumSDK, Polygon, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum'

const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Polygon>({network: Network.POLYGON})

const response = await tatum.rpc.getBlockTransactionCountByNumber(47766249)

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


The eth_getBlockTransactionCountByNumber Polygon JSON-RPC method allows you to retrieve the number of transactions in a specified block. This method is particularly useful when you need to analyse the transaction activity of a specific block. You can use it to gain insights into network usage, analyse the impact of specific events on the Polygon network, or monitor transaction congestion in certain blocks.


  1. blockNumber: The block number for which the transaction count should be retrieved. It should be a hex-encoded value representing the block number.

    • Example: 47766249

Return Object

The returned object is a hex-encoded value representing the number of transactions in the specified block.

  • Example: "0xa" (10 transactions)
