Code examples on the right side will not work, please refer to the examples below instead

For context, this has to do with OpenAPI compatibility with JSON-RPC requests. We're working on a solution here but in the meantime, check out the composer tool to make requests from the browser.

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

See eth_getBlockByHash
