Mempool API

Connect to Blocknative transaction monitoring services directly with webhooks

Overview

This documentation describes how to connect to and use Blocknative's transaction monitoring service using webhooks. The service delivers near real time notifications of Ethereum transaction state changes via POSTs to your URL (webhook). Each state change is a JSON payload with all the transaction details.

To use our API with web sockets, please see the SDK.

API usage has rate limits. Please see Rate Limits for more details.

Getting Started

Setup API Key

  1. Create a Blocknative account by clicking the Sign up button on Mempool Explorer and following the instructions. Account creation requires email confirmation to complete.

  2. Blocknative will create a Default API key for your account that you can use. You can create additional API keys from your account page on explorer.blocknative.com/account by clicking the Add new API key button to the upper right.

  3. Secret keys additionally are available to be generated for API keys which allow secure usage of configuration modification endpoints.

Setup Webhook

Create a new webhook for an API key by clicking the "Add a Webhook" button to the right of the API key. This will reveal a form to enter the webhook specifics: URL, blockchain (currently Ethereum and Bitcoin are supported), and network. See below for Supported Networks. You can optionally include a username and password if your webhook used basic authentication.

We support Slack webhooks. If you want to create a Discord webhook, append /slack to the end of the Discord URL to use its Slack compatibility mode.

Slack webhooks must begin with https://hooks.slack.com/services. Discord webhooks must begin with https://discordapp.com/api/webhooks.

Slack and Discord limit the size of messages so notifications involving large contract inputs may be abbreviated. Normal, i.e. not Slack/Discord, webhooks are not abbreviated.

Add Address to Watch

Add an address to watch by clicking the Watch Address button and entering the address.

Ethereum addresses begin with a 0x followed by 40 characters (hexadecimal). Any valid Ethereum address can be used, including external accounts and smart contracts. The following Bitcoin addresses are valid:

To stop notifications for an address, use the View Address button next to Add webhook, and click the Delete icon next to the address you'd like to stop watching.

It is safe to add the same address multiple times or to unwatch addresses not being watched.

Authentication

No authentication is currently required to facilitate testing, apart from configuration modification endpoints. Basic auth (username/password) is supported and recommended for production use, and we are adding additional authentication methods based on customer requirements. We recommend HTTPS requests but also offer support for HTTP.

Secret keys

Secret keys are available to be generated per API key, which can be used to access these endpoints:

These end points require a 'credentials' header which takes the API key and associated secret key in one variable in the form "apiKey:secretKey".

Example: 9ed49579-a78b-4c82-b796-6db3aded6ed2:67ed12d1-f0ab-4f18-812c-58356684728b

Simulated Pending Payload

Blocknative will send pending-simulationnotifications when a watchedAddress is detected in the from or to field of the main transaction or internal transactions of a contract call. The notification will include details of the internal transactions and balance changes resulting from those internal transactions. The internal transaction details and balance changes are probabilistic based on simulating the transaction against the latest confirmed block. Fields are not ordered.

Examples

Direct send transaction

A direct send transaction is sending funds (ether) from one account to another. The hash is setup as a watched transaction and/or to address or the from addresses or both are setup as watched addresses.

}

As a direct ETH transfer, this transaction has 0x for its input.

Contract call transaction

When watched transaction is a contract call, or a watched address makes a contract call, a similar transaction notification is generated where the to address is the contract.

  "system": "ethereum",
  "nonce": 1066,
  "id": "e08fc37a-db98-4954-be23-757719c7317c",

  "apiKey": "15273e72873dba2cd065"
}

As a contract call, this transaction has a value for input. The value contains the contract method signature and and parameters to the method call.

If you would like to have your contract decoded (method and parameter names delivered in JSON message) please contact Blocknative at support@blocknative.com or on our Discord server with your contract address (for each supported network) and ABI.

Token transfer transaction

If the watched transaction is a ERC-20/ERC-721 transfer, or an ERC-20/ERC-721 token transfer or transferFromtransaction involves a watched address, the details of the transfer and token involved are included in the transaction notification.

speedup

a replacement transaction (same nonce and from, higher gas) was detected in the mempool with the same to, value and input parameters as the transaction being replaced

cancel

a replacement transaction (same nonce and from, higher gas) was detected in the mempool with different to, value or input parameters compared to the transaction being replaced

confirmed
