Step 1: Setup Moralis

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

Step 2: Get native balance of an address

In order to get the native balance of a wallet address, Moralis provides you the solBalance API endpoint to do so.

Here you'll need two parameters: address and network.

Once you have obtained both the address and network, you can copy the following code:

const Moralis = require("moralis").default;
const { SolNetwork } = require("@moralisweb3/common-sol-utils");

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

const address = "BWeBmN8zYDXgx2tnGj72cA533GZEWAVeqR9Eu29txaen";

const network = SolNetwork.MAINNET;

const response = await Moralis.SolApi.account.getBalance({



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:

"lamports": "0",
"solana": "0"

Congratulations 🥳 You just got the native balance of a wallet address with just a few lines of code using the Moralis Solana API!
