How to Get Transaction History for an Address of a Smart Account


As an example of account types, you can read the Ethereum Accounts article.

The Moralis Wallet API streamlines the retrieval of transaction history, making it easier for developers to access and use transaction data for various purposes.

Why Retrieve Address Transaction History?

  1. Display Full Transaction History: Provide users with a complete view of their blockchain transactions for wallet and financial tracking.

  2. Filter Smart Contract Interactions: Easily review transactions related to smart contract interactions for auditing and analysis.

  3. Analyze Profit and Loss: Calculate gains and losses by accessing historical transaction data for investment evaluation.

  4. Security Auditing: Conduct security audits and vulnerability assessments on smart contracts and blockchain applications.

  5. Dispute Resolution: Resolve disputes and investigate discrepancies using an objective transaction record.

Learn the most efficient method for obtaining and getting a complete transaction history for smart contract accounts. It includes external, internal, token, ERC-20, ERC-721, and ERC-1155 token transfers, all in a single API request.

This step-by-step tutorial shows how to retrieve transactions from a smart account, simplifying the process and offering code examples in multiple programming languages.


This tutorial uses Moralis' getWalletTransactions RPC method.

Step 1: Set Up Moralis​

Read our article, Setting Up Moralis: Getting Started, and make sure to finish all the steps. Only after that can you go ahead to complete this guide.

Step 2: Method to Get and Retrieve Transactions for a Given Smart Account Address​

You can use the getWalletTransactions API endpoint to get all transactions for an address of a smart account. This endpoint allows you to fetch transactions for a given address of a smart account.

You will need two essential parameters:

  • address
  • chain

Once you have obtained both address and chain, you can use the code snippets below to retrieve the transactions:

// Import Moralis and EvmChain from required libraries
const Moralis = require("moralis").default;
const { EvmChain } = require("@moralisweb3/common-evm-utils");

// Define the main function to retrieve transactions
const runApp = async () => {
// Initialize Moralis with your API key and other configurations
await Moralis.start({
apiKey: "YOUR_API_KEY",
// ...and any other configuration

// Define the smart account address you want to retrieve transactions for
const address = "0x350845DD3f03F1355233a3A7CEBC24b5aAD05eC5";

// Specify the Ethereum chain (e.g., ETHEREUM) for the transactions
const chain = EvmChain.ETHEREUM;

// Use Moralis.EvmApi.transaction.getWalletTransactions to fetch transactions
const response = await Moralis.EvmApi.transaction.getWalletTransactions({

// Log the JSON response

// Run the main function to retrieve transactions

Step 3: Run the Script​

To run the script, enter the following command:

node index.js

Code example of the JSON response:

"page_size": "100",
