eth_getBlockByNumber
Returns information about a block by block number.

Parameters

Params - a string array containing (required):
  • QUANTITY|TAG(hex string|string, required) - integer of a block number, or the string "earliest", "latest" or "pending", as in the default block parameter.
  • Boolean(boolean, required) - if true it returns the full transaction objects, if false only the hashes of the transactions.

Returns

Object - A block object, or null when no block was found:
  • number(hex string). QUANTITY - the block number. null when its pending block.
  • hash(hex string). DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the block. null when its pending block.
  • parentHash(hex string). DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the parent block.
  • nonce(hex string). DATA, 8 Bytes - hash of the generated proof-of-work. null when its pending block.
  • sha3Uncles(hex string). DATA, 32 Bytes - SHA3 of the uncles data in the block.
  • logsBloom(hex string). DATA, 256 Bytes - the bloom filter for the logs of the block. null when its pending block.
  • transactionsRoot(hex string). DATA, 32 Bytes - the root of the transaction trie of the block.
  • stateRoot(hex string). DATA, 32 Bytes - the root of the final state trie of the block.
  • receiptsRoot(hex string). DATA, 32 Bytes - the root of the receipts trie of the block.
  • miner(hex string). DATA, 20 Bytes - the address of the beneficiary to whom the mining rewards were given.
  • difficulty(hex string). QUANTITY - integer of the difficulty for this block.
  • totalDifficulty(hex string). QUANTITY - integer of the total difficulty of the chain until this block.
  • extraData(hex string). DATA - the “extra data” field of this block.
  • size(hex string). QUANTITY - integer the size of this block in bytes.
  • gasLimit(hex string). QUANTITY - the maximum gas allowed in this block.
  • gasUsed(hex string). QUANTITY - the total used gas by all transactions in this block.
  • timestamp(hex string). QUANTITY - the unix timestamp for when the block was collated.
  • transactions(array of object). Array - Array of transaction objects, or 32 Bytes transaction hashes depending on the last given parameter.
  • uncles(array of hex string). Array - Array of uncle hashes.
