Simulate Transfer Erc20

Overview

The simulateTransferErc20 function within the Transaction Simulator extension is instrumental for simulating ERC20 token transfers on EVM-based blockchains. This function allows developers to comprehend and test the behavior of ERC20 token transfers without interacting with the live blockchain. This guide delineates the steps to utilize the simulateTransferErc20 function to enrich your blockchain projects.

How to Simulate an ERC20 Transfer

Utilize the provided library to simulate an ERC20 transfer on an EVM-based blockchain.
Typescript
Javascript
// Import necessary libraries
import { TatumSDK, Network, Ethereum } from '@tatumio/tatum';
import { TransactionSimulator } from '@tatumio/transaction-simulator';
​
// Initialize the SDK for a specific blockchain network
const tatumSdk = await TatumSDK.init<Ethereum>({
network: Network.ETHEREUM,
configureExtensions: [
TransactionSimulator,
]
})
​
// Define Your Payload
const tokenTransferPayload: TokenTransfer = {
to: 'recipient_address',
from: 'sender_address',
gas: '0xB411', // optional
gasPrice: '0x4B16C370A', //optional
value: 500, // example token amount to send
tokenContractAddress: 'your_erc20_token_contract_address'
};
​
// Call simulateTransferErc20
const tokenSimulationResult = await await tatumSdk.extension(TransactionSimulator)
.simulateTransferErc20(tokenTransferPayload);
​
// Check simulation results
console.log(tokenSimulationResult);
// Import necessary libraries
import { TatumSDK, Network, Ethereum } from '@tatumio/tatum';
import { simulateTransferErc20, Erc20Transfer } from '@tatumio/transaction-simulator';
​
// Initialize the SDK for a specific blockchain network
const tatumSdk = await TatumSDK.init<Ethereum>({
network: Network.ETHEREUM,
configureExtensions: [
TransactionSimulator,
]
})
​
// Define Your Payload
const tokenTransferPayload: TokenTransfer = {
to: 'recipient_address',
from: 'sender_address',
gas: '0xB411', // optional
gasPrice: '0x4B16C370A', //optional
value: 500, // example token amount to send
tokenContractAddress: 'your_erc20_token_contract_address'
};
​
// Call simulateTransferErc20
const tokenSimulationResult = await simulateTransferErc20(tokenTransferPayload);
​
// Check simulation results
console.log(tokenSimulationResult);

Parameters

  • to: Address of the recipient.
  • from: Address of the sender.
  • gas: (Optional) Gas limit for the transaction.
  • gasPrice: (Optional) Gas price for the transaction.
  • value: Amount to send in wei.
  • tokenContractAddress : Token address you want to interact with.
