Platform Chain (P-Chain) API

This API allows clients to interact with the P-Chain, which maintains Avalanche’s validator set and handles blockchain creation.

Endpoint

/ext/bc/P

Format

This API uses the json 2.0 RPC format.

Methods

platform.addDelegator

danger

Not recommended for use on Mainnet. See warning notice in Keystore API.

Add a delegator to the Primary Network.

A delegator stakes AVAX and specifies a validator (the delegatee) to validate on their behalf. The delegatee has an increased probability of being sampled by other validators (weight) in proportion to the stake delegated to them.

The delegatee charges a fee to the delegator; the former receives a percentage of the delegator’s validation reward (if any.) A transaction that delegates stake has no fee.

The delegation period must be a subset of the period that the delegatee validates the Primary Network.

info

Once you issue the transaction to add a node as a delegator, there is no way to change the parameters. You can’t remove a stake early or change the stake amount, node ID, or reward address. Please make sure you’re using the correct values. If you’re not sure, please reach out to us on Discord.

  • nodeID is the ID of the node to delegate to.
  • startTime is the Unix time when the delegator starts delegating.
  • endTime is the Unix time when the delegator stops delegating (and staked AVAX is returned).
  • stakeAmount is the amount of nAVAX the delegator is staking.
  • rewardAddress is the address the validator reward goes to, if there is one.
  • from are the addresses that you want to use for this operation. If omitted, uses any of your addresses as needed.

platform.addValidator

danger

Not recommended for use on Mainnet. See warning notice in Keystore API.

Add a validator to the Primary Network. You must stake AVAX to do this. If the node is sufficiently correct and responsive while validating, you receive a reward when end of staking period is reached. The validator’s probability of being sampled by other validators during consensus is in proportion to the amount of AVAX staked.

The validator charges a fee to delegators; the former receives a percentage of the delegator’s validation reward (if any.) The minimum delegation fee is 2%. A transaction that adds a validator has no fee.

The validation period must be between 2 weeks and 1 year for the Mainnet, and 24 hours and 1 year for Fuji Testnet.

There is a maximum total weight imposed on validators. This means that no validator will ever have more AVAX staked and delegated to it than this value. This value will initially be set to min(5 * amount staked, 3M AVAX). The total value on a validator is 3 million AVAX.

info

Note that once you issue the transaction to add a node as a validator, there is no way to change the parameters. You can’t remove stake early or change the stake amount, node ID, or reward address. Please make sure you’re using the correct values. If you’re not sure, please reach out to us on Discord.

Must be between 0 and 100, inclusive. For example, if delegationFeeRate is 1.2345 and someone delegates to this validator, then when the delegation period is over, 1.2345% of the reward goes to the validator and the rest goes to the delegator.

The cumulative weight of all validators in the Subnet must be at least snow-sample-size. For example, if there is only one validator in the Subnet, its weight must be at least snow-sample-size (default 20). Recall that a validator's weight can't be changed while it is validating, so take care to use an appropriate value.
  • from are the fund addresses that the user wants to use to pay for this operation. If omitted, use any of user's addresses as needed.

platform.getTxStatus

Gets a transaction’s status by its ID. If the transaction was dropped, response will include a reason field with more information why the transaction was dropped.

Signature

platform.getTxStatus({
txID: string
}) -> {status: string}

status is one of:

  • Committed: The transaction is (or will be) accepted by every node
  • Processing: The transaction is being voted on by this node
  • Dropped: The transaction will never be accepted by any node in the network, check reason field for more information
  • Unknown: The transaction hasn’t been seen by this node

Example Call

platform.getUTXOs

Gets the UTXOs that reference a given set of addresses.

Signature

platform.getUTXOs(
{
addresses: []string,
limit: int, // optional
startIndex: { // optional
address: string,
utxo: string
},
sourceChain: string, // optional
encoding: string, // optional
},
) ->
{
numFetched: int,
utxos: []string,
endIndex: {
address: string,
utxo: string
},
encoding: string,
}
  • utxos is a list of UTXOs such that each UTXO references at least one address in addresses.
  • At most limit UTXOs are returned. If limit is omitted or greater than 1024, it is set to 1024.
  • This method supports pagination. endIndex denotes the last UTXO returned. To get the next set of UTXOs, use the value of endIndex as startIndex in the next call.
  • If startIndex is omitted, will fetch all UTXOs up to limit.
  • When using pagination (ie when startIndex is provided), UTXOs are not guaranteed to be unique across multiple calls. That is, a UTXO may appear in the result of the first call, and then again in the second call.
  • When using pagination, consistency is not guaranteed across multiple calls. That is, the UTXO set of the addresses may have changed between calls.
  • encoding specifies the format for the returned UTXOs. Can only be hex when a value is provided.

Example

Suppose we want all UTXOs that reference at least one of P-avax18jma8ppw3nhx5r4ap8clazz0dps7rv5ukulre5 and P-avax1d09qn852zcy03sfc9hay2llmn9hsgnw4tp3dv6.

}
}' -H 'content-type:application/json;' 127.0.0.1:9650/ext/bc/P
