My code Problem: When I add 2nd log 0 on 3rd topics:, it gets me empty.

from web3 import Web3, HTTPProvider
from hexbytes import HexBytes
w3 = Web3(Web3.WebsocketProvider('my addresss....'))
event_signature_hash = Web3.keccak(text="eventName(uint32)").hex()
event_filter = w3.eth.filter({
    'topics':['0xe1fffcc4923d04b559f4d29a8bfc6cda04eb5b0d3c460751c2402c5c5cc9109c', '0x0000000000000000000000007a250d5630b4cf539739df2c5dacb4c659f2488d']

For transaction above I was able filter only 1st log only. And When I tried to add 2nd logs on topics it returns empty... Is there any way to filter whole log using topics?

How I did to get 2nd log 2 and 3rd log 2

    'topics': [

1 Answer 1


From the official documentation:

Given a transaction log with topics [A, B], the following topic filters will yield a match:

  • [] “anything”
  • [A] “A in first position (and anything after)”
  • [None, B] “anything in first position AND B in second position (and anything after)”
  • [A, B] “A in first position AND B in second position (and anything after)”
  • [[A, B], [A, B]] “(A OR B) in first position AND (A OR B) in second position (and anything after)”

So in order to retrieve the 1st log and the 2nd log, you need to use:

'topics': [
