Is it possible to explicitly tell if a node is using Geth or Parity?

This can be from a raw RPC call or the Infura (or other provider) layer. Is there an explicit way to do this without making an arbitrary call and looking for the trace methods (for example)?


There are two types of call to tell whether you are running Nethermind or Geth :)

admin.nodeInfo web3.clientVersion

  • Awesome! That is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you. – Shane Fontaine Apr 24 '20 at 16:38
