With access to the contract abi, how can the data from a contract be read? You can get the byte code with eth_getCode but I don't understand how that can be converted to a readable form

1 Answer 1


I have found two methods for doing this:

  • The data in a contract can be iterated through using eth_getstorageat at 0x0, 0x1 etc. You can use the abi to find which variables are stored at each index.

  • Public variables are automatically assigned a getter function. This can be called with eth_call to return the value stored in that variable.
