eth_getUncleByBlockNumberAndIndex - Polygon

Polygon API - Returns information about an uncle of a block by number and uncle index position.


  • QUANTITY|TAG - A block number, or the string "earliest", "latest" or "pending", as in the default block parameter.
  • QUANTITY - the uncle's index position.
params: [
    "0x29c", // 668
    "0x0", // 0


Object - A block object with the following fields, or null when no block was found:

  • number: QUANTITY - the block number. null when its pending block.
  • hash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the block. null when its pending block.
  • parentHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the parent block.
  • nonce: DATA, 8 Bytes - hash of the generated proof-of-work. null when its pending block.
  • sha3Uncles: DATA, 32 Bytes - SHA3 of the uncles data in the block.
  • logsBloom: DATA, 256 Bytes - the bloom filter for the logs of the block. null when its pending block.
