Returns block information by number.


QUANTITY|TAG - integer of a block number, or the string "latest"

Boolean - If true it returns the full transaction objects, if false only the hashes of the transactions.


Object - A block object, or null when no block was found:

  • number: QUANTITY - the block number.

  • hash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the block.

  • parentHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the parent block.

  • nonce: DATA, 8 Bytes - hash of the generated proof-of-work.

  • sha3Uncles: DATA, 32 Bytes - SHA3 of the uncles data in the block.

  • logsBloom: DATA, 256 Bytes - the bloom filter for the logs of the block.

  • transactionsRoot: DATA, 32 Bytes - the root of the transaction trie of the block.

  • stateRoot: DATA, 32 Bytes - the root of the final state trie of the block.

  • receiptsRoot: DATA, 32 Bytes - the root of the receipts trie of the block.

  • miner: DATA, 20 Bytes - the address of the beneficiary to whom the mining rewards were given.

  • difficulty: QUANTITY - integer of the difficulty for this block.

  • totalDifficulty: QUANTITY - integer of the total difficulty of the chain until this block.

  • extraData: DATA - the β€œextra data” field of this block.

  • size: QUANTITY - integer the size of this block in bytes.

  • gasLimit: QUANTITY - the maximum gas allowed in this block.

  • gasUsed: QUANTITY - the total used gas by all transactions in this block.

  • timestamp: QUANTITY - the unix timestamp for when the block was collated.

  • transactions: Array - Array of transaction objects, or 32 Bytes transaction hashes depending on the last given parameter.

  • uncles: Array - Array of uncle hashes.
