How to use it

// Import required libraries and modules from Tatum SDK
import { TatumSDK, Tezos, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum';

// Initialize the Tatum SDK for Tezos
const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Tezos>({ network: Network.TEZOS });

// Fetch the checkpoint for a specific Tezos chain using the deprecated getLevelsCheckpoint method
const checkpoint = await tatum.rpc.getLevelsCheckpoint({
  chainId: 'main'  // Specify the Tezos chain ID (usually 'main' for mainnet)

console.log(`The checkpoint for the chain is:`, checkpoint);

// Always destroy the Tatum SDK instance when done to stop any background processes
await tatum.destroy();


DEPRECATED: This method is deprecated. It is recommended to use ../levels/{checkpoint, savepoint, caboose, history_mode} instead. The getLevelsCheckpoint method provides information about the current checkpoint for a specified chain in Tezos.

Example use cases:

  1. Legacy System Support: While this method is deprecated, it may still be relevant for legacy systems or applications that have not transitioned to newer endpoints.

  2. Checkpoint Retrieval: Checkpoints are crucial for validating the blockchain's integrity. The method allows for quick retrieval of the current checkpoint for audit or validation purposes.

Request Parameters

The getLevelsCheckpoint method requires:

  • chainId (string, required): The identifier of the Tezos chain from which the checkpoint information is being requested.

Return Object

The getLevelsCheckpoint method returns an object containing details about the current checkpoint for the specified chain.
