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.getIdentity()

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


The getIdentity method is used to retrieve the identity pubkey for the current node. This pubkey represents a unique identifier for the node in the Solana network.

Use cases for this method might include retrieving the identity of a node for tracking or monitoring purposes, or validating the identity of a node in scenarios where only certain nodes are trusted for certain operations.


This method does not require any parameters.

Return Object

The result field will be a JSON object with the following fields:

  • identity: The identity pubkey of the current node as a base-58 encoded string.
