eth_getBlockByNumber
Returns information about a block by block number.
Parameters
  • QUANTITY|TAG - integer of a block number, or the string "earliest", "latest" or "pending", as in the default block parameter.
  • Boolean - If true it returns the full transaction objects, if false only the hashes of the transactions.
params: [
'0x1b4',
true
]
Returns
Object - A block object with the following fields, or null when no block was found:

  • parentHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the parent block.
  • nonce: DATA, 8 Bytes - hash of the generated proof-of-work. null when its pending block.
  • sha3Uncles: DATA, 32 Bytes - SHA3 of the uncles data in the block.
  • logsBloom: DATA, 256 Bytes - the bloom filter for the logs of the block. null when its pending block.

  • size: QUANTITY - integer the size of this block in bytes.
  • gasLimit: QUANTITY - the maximum gas allowed in this block.
  • gasUsed: QUANTITY - the total used gas by all transactions in this block.
  • timestamp: QUANTITY - the unix timestamp for when the block was collated.
  • transactions: Array - Array of transaction objects, or 32 Bytes transaction hashes depending on the last given parameter.
