Returns the receipt of a transaction by transaction hash.

This can also be used to track the status of a transaction, since the result will be null until the transaction is mined. However, unlike eth_getTransactionByHash, which returns null for unknown transactions, and a non-null response with 3 null fields for a pending transaction, eth_getTransactionReceipt returns null for both pending and unknown transactions.

This call is also commonly used to get the contract address for a contract creation tx.

Note: the receipt is not available for pending transactions.


DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of a transaction

params: [ 


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

  • transactionHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the transaction.

  • transactionIndex: QUANTITY - integer of the transactions index position in the block.

  • blockHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the block where this transaction was in.

  • blockNumber: QUANTITY - block number where this transaction was in.

  • from: DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the sender.

  • to: DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the receiver. null when its a contract creation transaction.

  • cumulativeGasUsed: QUANTITY - The total amount of gas used when this transaction was executed in the block.

  • gasUsed: QUANTITY - The amount of gas used by this specific transaction alone.

  • contractAddress: DATA, 20 Bytes - The contract address created, if the transaction was a contract creation, otherwise null.

  • logs: Array - Array of log objects, which this transaction generated.

  • logsBloom: DATA, 256 Bytes - Bloom filter for light clients to quickly retrieve related logs.

  • status: QUANTITY either 1 (success) or 0 (failure)
