Transaction Examples

Transactions

To send transactions and trigger actions on the blockchain, you must have an instance of Api.

The signature provider must contain the private keys corresponding to the actors and permission requirements of the actions being executed.

CommonJS

const { Api, JsonRpc } = require('eosjs');
const { JsSignatureProvider } = require('eosjs/dist/eosjs-jssig');  // development only
const fetch = require('node-fetch');                                // node only
const { TextDecoder, TextEncoder } = require('util');               // node only
const { TextEncoder, TextDecoder } = require('text-encoding');      // React Native, IE11, and Edge Browsers only

const privateKeys = [privateKey1];

const signatureProvider = new JsSignatureProvider(privateKeys);
const rpc = new JsonRpc('http://127.0.0.1:8888', { fetch });
const api = new Api({ rpc, signatureProvider, textDecoder: new TextDecoder(), textEncoder: new TextEncoder() });

ES Modules

import { Api, JsonRpc } from 'eosjs';
import { JsSignatureProvider } from 'eosjs/dist/eosjs-jssig';  // development only

const privateKeys = [privateKey1];

const signatureProvider = new JsSignatureProvider(privateKeys);
const rpc = new JsonRpc('http://127.0.0.1:8888');
const api = new Api({ rpc, signatureProvider })

Examples

Buy ram

const result = await api.transact({
  actions: [{
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'buyrambytes',
    authorization: [{
      actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      permission: 'active',
    }],
    data: {
      payer: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      receiver: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      bytes: 8192,
    },
  }]
}, {
  blocksBehind: 3,
  expireSeconds: 30,
});

Stake

const result = await api.transact({
  actions: [{
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'delegatebw',
    authorization: [{
      actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      permission: 'active',
    }],
    data: {
      from: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      receiver: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      stake_net_quantity: '1.0000 SYS',
      stake_cpu_quantity: '1.0000 SYS',
      transfer: false,
    }
  }]
}, {
  blocksBehind: 3,
  expireSeconds: 30,
});

Example: Unstake

const result = await api.transact({
  actions: [{
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'undelegatebw',
    authorization: [{
      actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      permission: 'active',
    }],
    data: {
      from: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      receiver: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      unstake_net_quantity: '1.0000 SYS',
      unstake_cpu_quantity: '1.0000 SYS',
      transfer: false,
    }
  }]
}, {
  blocksBehind: 3,
  expireSeconds: 30,
});

Create New Account (multiple actions)

const result = await api.transact({
  actions: [{
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'newaccount',
    authorization: [{
      actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      permission: 'active',
    }],
    data: {
      creator: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      name: 'mynewaccount',
      owner: {
        threshold: 1,
        keys: [{
          key: 'PUB_R1_6FPFZqw5ahYrR9jD96yDbbDNTdKtNqRbze6oTDLntrsANgQKZu',
          weight: 1
        }],
        accounts: [],
        waits: []
      },
      active: {
        threshold: 1,
        keys: [{
          key: 'PUB_R1_6FPFZqw5ahYrR9jD96yDbbDNTdKtNqRbze6oTDLntrsANgQKZu',
          weight: 1
        }],
        accounts: [],
        waits: []
      },
    },
  },
  {
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'buyrambytes',
    authorization: [{
      actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      permission: 'active',
    }],
    data: {
      payer: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      receiver: 'mynewaccount',
      bytes: 8192,
    },
  },
  {
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'delegatebw',
    authorization: [{
      actor: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      permission: 'active',
    }],
    data: {
      from: 'useraaaaaaaa',
      receiver: 'mynewaccount',
      stake_net_quantity: '1.0000 SYS',
      stake_cpu_quantity: '1.0000 SYS',
      transfer: false,
    }
  }]
}, {
  blocksBehind: 3,
  expireSeconds: 30,
