💰Token Management

Request all available tokens and their balances, manage token approvals and more.

Get available tokens

getTokens

Retrieves a list of all available tokens on specified chains.

Parameters

  • params (TokensRequest, optional): Configuration for the requested tokens.

    • chains (ChainId[], optional): List of chain IDs or keys. If not specified, returns tokens on all available chains.

    • chainTypes (ChainType[], optional): List of chain types.

  • options (RequestOptions, optional): Additional request options.

Returns

A Promise that resolves to TokensResponse.

Example

import { ChainType, getTokens } from '@lifi/sdk';

try {
  const tokens = await getTokens({
    chainTypes: [ChainType.EVM, ChainType.SVM],
  });
  console.log(tokens);
} catch (error) {
  console.error(error);
}

getToken

Fetches details about a specific token on a specified chain.

Parameters

  • chain (ChainKey | ChainId): ID or key of the chain that contains the token.

  • token (string): Address or symbol of the token on the requested chain.

  • options (RequestOptions, optional): Additional request options.

Returns

A Promise that resolves to Token object.

Example

import { getToken } from '@lifi/sdk';

const chainId = 1;
const tokenAddress = '0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000';

try {
  const token = await getToken(chainId, tokenAddress);
  console.log(token);
} catch (error) {
  console.error(error);
}

Get token balance

Please ensure that you configure the SDK with EVM/Solana providers first. They are required to use this functionality. Additionally, it is recommended to provide your private RPC URLs, as public ones are used by default and may rate limit you for multiple requests, such as getting the balance of multiple tokens at once.

Read more Configure SDK Providers.

Managing token allowance

Token allowance and approval functionalities are specific to EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) chains. It allows smart contracts to interact with ERC-20 tokens by approving a certain amount of tokens that a contract can spend from the user's wallet.

Please ensure that you configure the SDK with the EVM provider. It is required to use this functionality.

Read more Configure SDK Providers.

getTokenAllowance

Fetches the current allowance for a specific token.

Parameters

  • token (BaseToken): The token for which to check the allowance.

  • ownerAddress (string): The owner of the token.

  • spenderAddress (string): The spender address that was approved.

Returns

A Promise that resolves to a bigint representing the allowance or undefined if the token is a native token.

Example

import { getTokenAllowance } from '@lifi/sdk';

const token = {
  address: '0xA0b86991c6218b36c1d19D4a2e9Eb0cE3606eB48',
  chainId: 1,
};

const ownerAddress = '0x552008c0f6870c2f77e5cC1d2eb9bdff03e30Ea0';
const spenderAddress = '0x1231DEB6f5749EF6cE6943a275A1D3E7486F4EaE';

try {
  const allowance = await getTokenAllowance(token, ownerAddress, spenderAddress);
  console.log('Allowance:', allowance);
} catch (error) {
  console.error('Error:', error);
}

getTokenAllowanceMulticall

Fetches the current allowance for a list of token/spender address pairs.

Parameters

  • ownerAddress (string): The owner of the tokens.

  • tokens (TokenSpender[]): A list of token and spender address pairs.

Returns

A Promise that resolves to an array of TokenAllowance objects.

Example

import { getTokenAllowanceMulticall } from '@lifi/sdk';

const ownerAddress = '0x552008c0f6870c2f77e5cC1d2eb9bdff03e30Ea0';
