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.getVoteAccounts({ votePubkey: 'beefKGBWeSpHzYBHZXwp5So7wdQGX6mu4ZHCsH3uTar' })

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


The getVoteAccounts method is used to fetch the current list of vote accounts and their associated stake in the network. This is particularly useful when you want to understand the current validators in the Solana network and their voting records. It can be used in situations where you need to analyse the active participation in the network's consensus protocol.

      • Example: true

    • delinquentSlotDistance (number, optional): Specify the number of slots behind the tip that a validator must fall to be considered delinquent. NOTE: For the sake of consistency between ecosystem products, it is not recommended that this argument be specified.

      • Example: 10

Return object
