zkevm_isBlockVirtualized | zkEVM

Polygon zkEVM API method that checks if a specific block has been virtualized. In the zkEVM, virtualization is the process of converting a block's data into a zero-knowledge proof. This method allows you to verify if a block has been virtualized and is part of the blockchain.

Parameters

  • blockNumber β€” (string) the block number to check if it has been virtualized, encoded as a hexadecimal value.

Response

  • result β€” (boolean) true if the specified block has been virtualized, and false otherwise.

    console.log(`Is Block ${blockNumber} Virtualized?: ${isVirtualized}`);

//replace 0xd29e with any block number
isBlockVirtualized("0xd29e");
