Cross-Chain Contract Calls

Cross-Chain Contract Calls: This feature enables contract calls across chains, buy NFTs, stake or donate without needing gas on the destination chain!
This is a beta feature! The user submits transactions to our already audited contract on the source chain. The contract on the destination chain to forwarding calls is currently in audit. To be able to test the new features, we deployed the destination contract to Polygon and Binance Smart Chain.

With this feature, you can make arbitrary contract calls across blockchains. All you need to do is prepare the callData for the contract call you want to make on the destination chain (e.g. stake KLIMA in the example below). Pass that callData along with information about where you want to pay for it to the endpoint. The response contains information on how many tokens must be submitted to pay for all transfer and swap fees.

Parameters

About the contract call:
Parameter
Explaination
Example Data
toChain
(required)
The chain the contract is deployed on. Can be the chain id or chain key.
137 or POL
toToken
(required)
The token required to perform the contract interaction (can be something to stake, donate or to be used as payment).
0x4e78011ce80ee02d2c3e649fb657e45898257815
toAmount
(required)
The amount of token required by the contract interaction. The LI.FI API will try and generate a quote that guarantees at least that amount on the destination chain.
300000000
toContractAddress (required)
The address of the contract to interact with.
0x4D70a031Fc76DA6a9bC0C922101A05FA95c3A227
toContractCallData (required)
The callData to be sent to the contract for the interaction on the destination chain.
0x7d7a...
toContractGasLimit (required)
The estimated gas used by the destination call. If this value is incorrect, the interaction may fail -- choose this carefully!
900000
toApprovalAddress (optional)
If the approval address is different thant the contract to call, specify that address here.
0x4D70a031Fc76DA6a9bC0C922101A05FA95c3A227
contractOutputsToken (optional)
Some contract interactions will output a token (e.g. staking), specify the token address to forward the token to the user. Omit this parameter if no token should be returned to the user.
0xb0c22d8d350c67420f06f48936654f567c73e8c8
toFallbackAddress (optional)
If the call fails, use this address to send the bridged tokens to. If none is specified, the sending address will be used.
0x552008c0f6870c2f77e5cC1d2eb9bdff03e30Ea0
How does the user want to pay:
Parameter
Explaination
Example Data
fromChain
(required)
The sending chain. Can be the chain id or chain key.
56 orBSC
fromToken (required)
The token that the user pays with. Can be the address or the symbol.
0x1af3f329e8be154074d8769d1ffa4ee058b1dbc3
fromAddress (required)
The wallet that will send the transaction and contains the starting token.
0x552008c0f6870c2f77e5cC1d2eb9bdff03e30Ea0
Additional options:
Parameter
Explaination
Example Data
slippage (optional)
The maximum allowed slippage for the transaction as a decimal value. 0.05 represents 5%.
0.02
integrator (optional)
A string containing tracking information about the integrator of the API.
my-dapp
referrer (optional)
A string containing tracking information about the referrer of the integrator.
0x552008c0f6870c2f77e5cC1d2eb9bdff03e30Ea0

Example: stake KLIMA on Polygon

The example below demonstrates how to stake KLIMA token (KlimaDAO) into sKLIMA (staked KLIMA). The process involves
  • sending some DAI token from Binance Smart Chain (BSC) to Polygon (POL)
  • swapping DAI for KLIMA
  • performing a contract call to the KLIMA staking contract.
The callData will be executed by our executer contract, not by the users wallet, so ensure that the contract does not expect the user to be msg.sender. The staked tokens are sent to the executor which will then forward them to the user if the contractOutputsToken parameter is set.
In the end, the contract will produce the staked KLIMA token sKLIMA which will then be transferred back to the user.
