trace_rawTransaction RPC Method

trace_rawTransaction executes a raw transaction but returns traces instead of posting it on chain.

Note: Chainnodes does not support trace_rawTransaction yet as erigon (opens in a new tab) hasn't implemented it to date. In the meantime you can easily replace this call with trace_call.

  • object - The trace object

    • output - The output (return value) of the call

    • stateDiff - The state changes that would happen due to the transaction in the given eth_call
