RESPONSE

RESULT FIELDS

  • ADDRESSES - arrays of hex codes as strings representing the addresses owned by the client

NOTE: While this JSON-RPC method is supported by Infura, it will not return any accounts. Infura does not support "unlocking" accounts. Instead, users should send already signed raw transactions using eth_sendRawTransaction.

BODY

  "result": []

blockNumber

Returns the current "latest" block number.

call

Executes a new message call immediately without creating a transaction on the block chain.

Method Limitations

To prevent abusive of the API, the gas parameter to eth_estimateGas and eth_call are capped at 10x (1000%) the current block gas limit. You can recreate this behavior in your local test environment (ganache, besu, geth, or other client) via the rpc.gascap command-line option.

    • from: [optional] 20 Bytes - The address the transaction is sent from.
    • to: 20 Bytes - The address the transaction is directed to.
    • gas: [optional] Integer of the gas provided for the transaction execution. eth_call consumes zero gas, but this parameter may be needed by some executions.
    • gasPrice: [optional] Integer of the gasPrice used for each paid gas
    • value: [optional] Integer of the value sent with this transaction
    • data: [optional] Hash of the method signature and encoded parameters. For details see Ethereum Contract ABI

estimateGas

Generates and returns an estimate of how much gas is necessary to allow the transaction to complete. The transaction will not be added to the blockchain. Note that the estimate may be significantly more than the amount of gas actually used by the transaction, for a variety of reasons including EVM mechanics and node performance.

Method Limitations

To prevent abusive of the API, the gas parameter to eth_estimateGas and eth_call are capped at 10x (1000%) the current block gas limit. You can recreate this behavior in your local test environment (ganache, besu, geth, or other client) via the rpc.gascap command-line option.

REQUEST PAYLOAD

  • TRANSACTION CALL OBJECT [required]
    • from: [optional] 20 Bytes - The address the transaction is sent from.
    • to: 20 Bytes - The address the transaction is directed to.
    • gas: [optional] Integer of the gas provided for the transaction execution. eth_estimateGas consumes zero gas, but this parameter may be needed by some executions.

    • value: [optional] Integer of the value sent with this transaction
    • data: [optional] Hash of the method signature and encoded parameters. For details see Ethereum Contract ABI

If no gas limit is specified geth uses the block gas limit from the pending block as an upper bound. As a result the returned estimate might not be enough to executed the call/transaction when the amount of gas is higher than the pending block gas limit.

REQUEST

POST https://<network>.infura.io/v3/YOUR-PROJECT-ID

HEADERS

Content-Type: application/json

REQUEST PARAMS

  • BLOCK PARAMETER [required] - an integer block number, or the string "latest", "earliest" or "pending", see the default block parameter

POST https://<network>.infura.io/v3/YOUR-PROJECT-ID

HEADERS

Content-Type: application/json

REQUEST PARAMS

  • FILTER OBJECT

LIMITATIONS

To prevent queries from consuming too many resources, eth_getLogs requests are currently limited by two constraints:

  • A max of 10,000 results can be returned by a single query

  • Query duration must not exceed 10 seconds

If a query returns too many results or exceeds the max query duration, one of the following errors is returned:

{
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": 1,
  "error": {
    "code": -32005,
    "message": "query returned more than 10000 results"
  }
}
{
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": 1,
  "error": {
    "code": -32005,
    "message": "query timeout exceeded"
  }
}

If this happens:

  • Limit your query to a smaller number of blocks using fromBlock and toBlock.
  • If querying for commonly used topics, consider limiting to a single Smart Contract address as well.

getStorageAt

Returns the value from a storage position at a given address.

REQUEST

POST https://<network>.infura.io/v3/YOUR-PROJECT-ID

HEADERS

Content-Type: application/json

REQUEST PARAMS

  • ADDRESS [required] - a string representing the address (20 bytes) of the storage
  • STORAGE POSITION [required] - a hex code of the position in the storage
  • BLOCK PARAMETER [required] - an integer block number, or the string "latest", "earliest" or "pending", see the default block parameter

RESPONSE

RESULT FIELDS

  • STORAGE VALUE - a hex code of the integer indicating the value of the storage position at the provided address

BODY

{
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": 1,
  "result": "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000"
}

Calculating the correct position depends on the storage to retrieve. Consider the following contract deployed at 0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251 by address 0x391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298,

contract Storage {
    uint pos0;
    mapping(address => uint) pos1;

    function Storage() {
        pos0 = 1234;
        pos1[msg.sender] = 5678;
    }
}

Retrieving the value of pos0 is straight forward:

Retrieving an element of the map is harder. The position of an element in the map is calculated with:

keccak(LeftPad32(key, 0), LeftPad32(map position, 0))

This means to retrieve the storage on pos1["0x391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298"] we need to calculate the position with:

keccak(decodeHex("000000000000000000000000391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298" + "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001"))

The geth console which comes with the web3 library can be used to make the calculation:

> var key = "000000000000000000000000391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298" + "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001"

"0x6661e9d6d8b923d5bbaab1b96e1dd51ff6ea2a93520fdc9eb75d059238b8c5e9"

Now to fetch the storage:

Rate Limits

Infura accounts will be subject to rate limits after exceeding their daily request limit. We will also rate limit projects that send too many JSONRPC requests during a short time window. These rate limits are in place to ensure the reliability of our service for everyone using it.

How do I know if I'm being rate limited?

If you are rate limited, your JSONRPC responses will have HTTP Status code 429 and contain a JSONRPC error response like so:

{
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": 1,
  "error": {
    "code": -32005,
    "message": "project ID request rate exceeded",
    "data": {
      "see": "https://infura.io/docs/ethereum/jsonrpc/ratelimits",
      "current_rps": 13.333,
      "allowed_rps": 10.0,
      "backoff_seconds": 30.0,
    }
  }
}
  • The "data" section contains 3 fields about your rate limit:
    • current_rps: The current rate per second determined by Infura
    • allowed_rps: The current allowed rate which you should stay under.
    • backoff_seconds: The suggested amount of time to wait before sending more requests.

Note that allowed_rps can and will change based on overall network conditions, so the current value should be used.

What should I do if rate limited?

The easiest solution is to pause JSONRPC activity for the amount of time returned in "backoff_seconds".

  • If you are consistently being rate limited consider some of these work-arounds:
    • Make sure you are using a Project ID in your URL. Requests without a Project ID will be severely rate-limited or even outright blocked.
    • Cache Ethereum data locally. Barring exceptionally rare deep reorganizations of the chain, blocks more than a couple blocks below the head of the chain can be cached indefinitely. Ask for the data once then keep it locally.
    • Limit RPCs at DApp startup. Likewise, limit the number of RPCs your DApp calls immediately at startup. Only request data as the user accesses that portion of the DApp, and cache anything from older blocks for next time.
    • Don't poll Infura in a tight loop. New blocks come roughly every 15 seconds, so requesting new data at a faster rate usually doesn't make sense. Consider using eth_subscribe to be notified when new blocks are available.

What factors does Infura use to determine rate limits?

Rate limiting will be applied account wide after the accounts daily request limit is exceeded.

  • For rate limiting designed to protect our service in the event of an attack, we use a combination of:
    • Source IP address
    • JSONRPC Method
    • Project ID

Our system constantly adjusts these types of rate limits based on overall usage and possible abuse. Typically only very aggressive usage should ever experience rate limits. Customers running into any rate limits are encouraged to contact us; we'll work with you to determine how best to avoid being rate limited in the future.
