How to use it

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum

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

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

const res = await tatum.rpc.getProgramAccounts('BPFLoaderUpgradeab1e11111111111111111111111')

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


The getProgramAccounts RPC method retrieves all accounts owned by a specific program on the Solana blockchain. This method can be useful when monitoring the state of a program or tracking the accounts associated with a particular smart contract.

Currently pagination is not supported. Requests to getProgramAccounts should include the dataSlice and/or filters parameters to improve response time and return only intended results.


The getProgramAccounts method accepts a program ID and an optional object:

  • programId(string, required): Pubkey of program, as base-58 encoded string

    • Example: "BPFLoaderUpgradeab1e11111111111111111111111"

  • options (object, optional): Configuration object containing the following fields:

    • commitment (string, optional): Specifies the confirmation level of data to be fetched.

      • Values: finalized confirmed processed

    • minContextSlot (number, optional): The minimum slot that the request can be evaluated at

      • Example: 123456

    • withContext (boolean, optional): Whether to wrap the result in an RpcResponse JSON object

      • Example: true

    • encoding (string, optional): The encoding format for the returned Account data

      • Example: base58 base64 base64+zstd jsonParsed

    • dataSlice (object, optional): Limit the returned account data using the provided `offset: number` and `length: number` fields;

      • only available for "base58", "base64" or "base64+zstd" encodings.

      • Example: { offset: 0, length: 100 }

    • filters (array, optional): An array of filter objects to filter the accounts based on certain conditions.

      • Example: [{ memcmp: { offset: 0, bytes: "base64" } }

Return object

The getProgramAccounts method returns an array of objects, each containing the following fields:

  • pubkey: The public key of the account.

  • account: An object containing:

    • data: The account's data, encoded according to the requested format.

    • executable: Whether the account is executable.

    • lamports: The account's current balance.

    • owner: The account's owner public key.

    • rentEpoch: The epoch at which the account will owe rent again.

    • size: The data size of the account

If withContext is set to true, the response will also include a context object:

  • context: An object containing details about the context in which the data was fetched.

    • slot: The slot at which the data was fetched.
