How to get ERC20 token metadata by token addresses

Prerequisites

Before getting started, make sure you have the following ready:

  • Node v.14+ or Python
  • NPM/Yarn or Pip

Step 1: Setup Moralis

First register your Moralis account and get your Moralis API Key.

Once you have your Moralis API Key, install the Moralis SDK in your project.

npm install moralis @moralisweb3/common-evm-utils

Step 2: Get ERC20 Token Metadata By Multiple Token Addresses

In order to an ERC20 token metadata, Moralis provides you a getTokenMetadata API endpoint to do so.

Here you'll need two parameters: addresses and chain.

Once you've obtained both the addresses and chain, you can copy the following code:

const Moralis = require("moralis").default;
const { EvmChain } = require("@moralisweb3/evm-utils");

const runApp = async () => {
await Moralis.start({
apiKey: "YOUR_API_KEY",
// ...and any other configuration
});

const addresses = [
"0xC02aaA39b223FE8D0A0e5C4F27eAD9083C756Cc2",
"0x514910771AF9Ca656af840dff83E8264EcF986CA",
];

const chain = EvmChain.ETHEREUM;

const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.token.getTokenMetadata({
addresses,
chain,
});

console.log(response.toJSON());
};

runApp();

Step 3: Run the script

To run the script, enter the following command:

node index.js

In your terminal, you should see the following JSON response:

[
{
"address": "0x514910771af9ca656af840dff83e8264ecf986ca",
"name": "Chain Link",

"created_at": "2022-01-20T10:39:55.818Z"
}
]

Congratulations 🥳 you just got the price of an ERC20 metadata by multiple token addresses with just a few lines of code using the Moralis Token API!
