Returns the value from a storage position at a given address.


Supported on Klaytn (mainnet) only.



20-byte DATAAddress of the storage.
QUANTITYInteger of the position in the storage.
QUANTITY | TAG | HASHInteger or hexadecimal block number, or the string "earliest", "latest" or "pending", or block hash.

NOTE: In versions earlier than Klaytn v1.7.0, only integer block number, the string "earliest" and "latest" are available.


DATAThe value at this storage position.

API Endpoint

The format of a Klaytn API endpoint is

Here is an example:


Calculating the correct position depends on the storage to retrieve. Consider the following contract deployed at 0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251 by address 0x391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298.

contract Storage {
    uint pos0;
    mapping(address => uint) pos1;

    function Storage() {
        pos0 = 1234;
        pos1[msg.sender] = 5678;

Retrieving the value of pos0 is straight forward:

curl https://open-platform.nodereal.io/{{apiKey}}/klaytn/ \
  -X POST \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "klay_getStorageAt", "params": ["0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251", "0x0", "latest"], "id": 1}' 


Retrieving an element of the map is harder. The position of an element in the map is calculated with:

keccak(LeftPad32(key, 0), LeftPad32(map position, 0))

This means to retrieve the storage on pos1["0x391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298"] we need to calculate the position with:

keccak(decodeHex("000000000000000000000000391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298" + "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001"))

The Klaytn console which comes with the klay library can be used to make the calculation

> var key = "000000000000000000000000391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298" + "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001"
> klay.sha3(key, {"encoding": "hex"})

Now to fetch the storage:

curl https://open-platform.nodereal.io/{{apiKey}}/klaytn/ \
  -X POST \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "klay_getStorageAt", "params": ["0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251", "0x6661e9d6d8b923d5bbaab1b96e1dd51ff6ea2a93520fdc9eb75d059238b8c5e9", "latest"], "id": 1}'
