How To Access Cronos via Ethereum API

Step 1: To access the available Ethereum methods, use the native access endpoint with http-rpc at the end:

  • Network: Cronos Mainnet
  • Request Type: POST
https://svc.blockdaemon.com/cronos/mainnet/native/http-rpc

Step 2: You should authorize your request. Learn more: Authentication Guide

Step 3: Specify an Ethereum method in the request body:

{
    "jsonrpc": "2.0",
    "id": 1,
    "method": "YOUR_METHOD",
    "params": []
}

Example Request

Here is a cURL example for using eth_blockNumber to get the current block number in Cronos Mainnet:

curl -X \
POST https://svc.blockdaemon.com/cronos/mainnet/native/http-rpc \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "method": "eth_blockNumber", "params": []}'

The following is a typical response you will get:

{
    "jsonrpc": "2.0",
    "id": 1,
    "result": "0x22105c3"
}
