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 message = {
  // Message content goes here...
const res = await tatum.rpc.getFeeForMessage(message)

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


The getFeeForMessage method is used to estimate the transaction fee for a given message. This is very useful when you are preparing to send a transaction and you want to estimate the transaction cost. This can be used in situations where you need to validate whether a user has enough funds to cover the transaction fee or to provide an estimate of the cost to the user.


  • message(string, required): Base-64 encoded Message for which the fee should be estimated.


  • 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: 1000

Return Object

The result will be a JSON object with value equal to Fee corresponding to the message at the specified blockhash
