eth_getTransactionByHash

How to use it

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum
  
import { TatumSDK, XinFin, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum'
  
const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<XinFin>({ network: Network.XINFIN })  

const tx = await tatum.rpc.getTransactionByHash('0x501bc07b1e3346dabe68c6c0bee7fa52ea59c829396cd621cde0b61829321e58')

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

Overview

eth_getTransactionByHash is a 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: "0xa536596d043c03d709aaccbc53f421963fe3537274e86444cd984404cf9ecb13"

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.
