RPC API Reference

Theta offers two sets of RPC APIs. The rationale of this division is to separate the public interface accessible to all users and personal interface that manages a specific user's private wallet.

The Theta APIs is provided by the Theta Node. It is the RPC interface via which a user can interact with the Theta Node directly. As described in the setup guide, the Theta Node can be launched with the following command. By default the Theta node runs its RPC server at port 16888.

theta start --config=<path/to/config/folder>

The ThetaCli APIs is provided by the ThetaCli Daemon. It allows a user to interact with his/her personal Theta Wallet through RPC calls. The wallet can manange multiple accounts simultaneously. The encrypted private keys of the accounts are stored under ~/.thetacli/keys/encrypted/ by default. The RPC APIs supports account creation, lock/unlock, and sending Theta/TFuel. The ThetaCli Daemon can be run by the following command. If the port parameter is not specified, by default it runs at port 16889. Note that part of the ThetaCli Daemon's functionality depends on the Theta Node. Hence we need to have the Theta Node running when we launch the ThetaCli Daemon.

thetacli daemon start --port=<port>

In the examples below, we assume the reader has followed the setup guide to launch both the Theta Node and the ThetaCli Daemon on the local machine at port 16888 and 16889 respectively.

We have also implemented a JavaScript SDK Theta.js for ease of DApp development. Please refer to here for more details.

This API returns the block being queried in json format.

RPC Method: theta.GetBlock

Query Parameters

  • hash: the block hash

Returns

  • chain_id: ID of the chain
  • epoch: epoch of the block

  • hash: hash of the transaction
  • status: status of the block (see the Block Status note below)

Transaction Types

0: coinbase transaction, for validator/guardian reward
1: slash transaction, for slashing malicious actors
2: send transaction, for sending tokens among accounts
3: reserve fund transaction, for off-chain micropayment
4: release fund transaction, for off-chain micropayment
5: service payment transaction, for off-chain micropayment
6: split rule transaction, for the "split rule" special smart contract
7: smart contract transaction, for general purpose smart contract
8: deposit stake transaction, for depositing stake to validators/guardians

Block Status

0: pending 
1: valid
2: invalid
3: committed
4: directly finalized
5: indirectly finalized
6: trusted (the first block in a verified snapshot is marked as trusted)

A block and all the transactions included in the block are considered Finalized by the validators if the block status is either 4, 5, or 6

Block status transitions:

+-------+          +-------+                          +-------------------+
|Pending+---+------>Invalid|                    +----->IndirectlyFinalized|
+-------+   |      +-------+                    |     +-------------------+

            |      +-----+        +---------+   |     +-----------------+
            +------>Valid+-------->Committed+---+----->DirectlyFinalized|
                   +-----+        +---------+         +-----------------+

Example

In this example, we queried the block with hash 0x9f1e77b08c9fa8984096a735d0aae6b0e43aee297e42c54ce36334103ddd67a7. This block contains two transactions. The first one is a "coinbase" transaction (type 0), and the second is a "send" transaction (type 2). In particular, in the "send" transaction, address 0x2e833968e5bb786ae419c4d13189fb081cc43bab sent 10 Theta and 20 TFuel tokens to address 0x9f1233798e905e173560071255140b4a8abd3ec6, which cost 1000000000000 TFuelWei transaction fee.

GetBlockByHeight

This API returns the finalized block given the height. If none of the blocks at the given height are finalized (either directly or indirectly), the API simply returns an empty result.

RPC Method: theta.GetBlockByHeight

Query Parameters

  • height: the block height (need to pass in as a string instead of an integer)

Returns

Similar to the returns of the GetBlock API. Please see above.

Example

In this example, we query the block at height 3. The result is similar to the result of the GetBlock API.

GetTransaction

This API returns the transaction being queried in json format.

RPC Method: theta.GetTransaction

Query Parameters

  • hash: the transaction hash*

RPC API Reference


Theta offers two sets of RPC APIs. The rationale of this division is to separate the public interface accessible to all users and personal interface that manages a specific user's private wallet.

The Theta APIs is provided by the Theta Node. It is the RPC interface via which a user can interact with the Theta Node directly. As described in the setup guide, the Theta Node can be launched with the following command. By default the Theta node runs its RPC server at port 16888.

theta start --config=<path/to/config/folder>

The ThetaCli APIs is provided by the ThetaCli Daemon. It allows a user to interact with his/her personal Theta Wallet through RPC calls. The wallet can manange multiple accounts simultaneously. The encrypted private keys of the accounts are stored under ~/.thetacli/keys/encrypted/ by default. The RPC APIs supports account creation, lock/unlock, and sending Theta/TFuel. The ThetaCli Daemon can be run by the following command. If the port parameter is not specified, by default it runs at port 16889. Note that part of the ThetaCli Daemon's functionality depends on the Theta Node. Hence we need to have the Theta Node running when we launch the ThetaCli Daemon.

thetacli daemon start --port=<port>

In the examples below, we assume the reader has followed the setup guide to launch both the Theta Node and the ThetaCli Daemon on the local machine at port 16888 and 16889 respectively.

We have also implemented a JavaScript SDK Theta.js for ease of DApp development. Please refer to here for more details.
