EVM

Methods

Find below a list of JSON-RPC methods supported on CrossFi, sorted by namespaces.

Curl Examples Explained

The curl options below might return a response where the node complains about the content type, this is because the --data option sets the content type to application/x-www-form-urlencoded. If your node does complain, manually set the header by placing -H "Content-Type: application/json" at the start of the call.

The examples also do not include the URL/IP & port combination which must be the last argument given to curl e.x. 127.0.0.1:8545

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 recognizable 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 β€œor” 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.
