Get the web3 client version.

// Request
curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"web3_clientVersion","params":[],"id":67}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8545

// Result
 {"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"result":"Ethermint/0.0.0+/linux/go1.14"}

eth_sign

The sign method calculates an Ethereum specific signature with: sign(keccak256(”\x19Ethereum Signed Message:\n” + len(message) + message))).

By adding a prefix to the message makes the calculated signature recognisable as an Ethereum specific signature. This prevents misuse where a malicious DApp can sign arbitrary data (e.g. transaction) and use the signature to impersonate the victim.

::: warning the address to sign with must be unlocked. :::

Parameters

  • Account Address
  • Message to sign
// Request
curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"eth_sign","params":["0x3b7252d007059ffc82d16d022da3cbf9992d2f70", "0xdeadbeaf"],"id":1}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8545

eth_getLogs

Returns an array of all logs matching a given filter object.

Parameters

  • Object containing:

    fromBlock: QUANTITY|TAG - (optional, default: “latest”) Integer block number, or “latest” for the last mined block or “pending”, “earliest” for not yet mined transactions.

    toBlock: QUANTITY|TAG - (optional, default: “latest”) Integer block number, or “latest” for the last mined block or “pending”, “earliest” for not yet mined transactions.

    address: DATA|Array, 20 Bytes - (optional) Contract address or a list of addresses from which logs should originate.

    topics: Array of DATA, - (optional) Array of 32 Bytes DATA topics. Topics are order-dependent. Each topic can also be an array of DATA with “or” options.

    blockhash: (optional, future) With the addition of EIP-234, blockHash will be a new filter option which restricts the logs returned to the single block with the 32-byte hash blockHash. Using blockHash is equivalent to fromBlock = toBlock = the block number with hash blockHash. If blockHash is present in in the filter criteria, then neither fromBlock nor toBlock are allowed.
