A more optimistic version of ethcall

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import ethlens from '';



Utility library to make calls to Ethereum blockchain.

Uses MakerDAO's Multicall contracts to make multiple requests in a single HTTP query. Encodes and decodes data automatically.

Inspired and powered by ethers.js.

Forked from Destiner's ethcall library.

npm install ethlens


  • Contract(address, abi): create contract instance; calling contract.call_func_name will yield a call object.
  • all(calls): execute all calls in a single request.
  • tryAll(calls): execute all calls in a single request. Ignores reverted calls and returns null value in place of return data.
  • calls: list of helper call methods
    • getEthBalance(address): returns account ether balance


import { Contract, Provider, getMulticall } from 'ethlens';
import { InfuraProvider } from '@ethersproject/providers';

import erc20Abi from './abi/erc20.json';

const infuraKey = 'INSERT_YOUR_KEY_HERE';
const provider = new InfuraProvider('mainnet', infuraKey);

const daiAddress = '0x6b175474e89094c44da98b954eedeac495271d0f';

async function call() {
    const ethcallProvider = new Provider(getMulticall(1));

    const daiContract = new Contract(daiAddress, erc20Abi);

    const uniswapDaiPool = '0x2a1530c4c41db0b0b2bb646cb5eb1a67b7158667';

    const ethBalanceCall = ethcallProvider.getEthBalance(uniswapDaiPool);
    const daiBalanceCall = daiContract.balanceOf(uniswapDaiPool);

    const data = await ethcallProvider.all([ethBalanceCall, daiBalanceCall]);

    const ethBalance = data[0];
    const daiBalance = data[1];

    console.log('eth balance', ethBalance.toString());
    console.log('dai balance', daiBalance.toString());


Deployless Multicall

If you query a chain on which Multicall is not deployed, or if you query a historical block before the deployment of the contract, the deployless version will be used instead. In short, deployless Multicall "emulates" the deployed contract and returns the exact same data. Note that you can't query ETH balance using deployless version.
