RPC Methods

Ethereum RPCs implemented in the imToken application.

Introduction

Here is the list of all Ethereum RPCs currently supported by the imToken App, for more information you can also refer to the Ethereum RPCs.

imToken's DApp browser no longer injects web3 into the DApp, we only inject the Provider.(you can get it using window.ethereum) For more information on how to start connecting to your wallet using Provider, please refer to:

// Modern application
window.web3 = new Web3(ethereum)
// Or with ethers
await window.ethereum.enable()
const provider = new ethers.providers.Web3Provider(window.ethereum)

Implemented RPCs

API wallet_addEthereumChain only works on versions higher than 2.8.4.

Returns

Params

type EthereumChain = {
chainId: string
chainName: string
nativeCurrency: {
name: string
symbol: string // 2-6 characters long
decimals: number // 18
};
rpcUrls: string[]
blockExplorerUrls?: string[]
}

Example

const chain = {
chainId: "0x64",
chainName: "xDAI Chain",
rpcUrls: ["https://dai.poa.network"],
iconUrls: [
"https://xdaichain.com/fake/example/url/xdai.svg",
"https://xdaichain.com/fake/example/url/xdai.png",

},
}
window.ethereum.request({
method: "wallet_addEthereumChain",
