This script is a demo of how to use the ContractKit to send a transaction on the Celo network (
With npm installed, run this script with the command:
// Import ContractKit
const ContractKit = require('@celo/contractkit')
// Create a new instance of ContractKit, connecting to Celo via the public API
const contractKit = ContractKit.newKit('')
// Specify an arbitrary recipient of the transaction
const recipient = '0xB9727f7f1e1f4a5229a49E260fBBBD410d10f2Ff'
// Specify an amount to trasnfer, and convert it to the appropriate units
const transferAmount = '0.10'
const weiTransferAmount = contractKit.web3.utils.toWei(transferAmount, 'ether')
// If you want to create a new account: const account = kit.web3.eth.accounts.create();
// You can faucet an account here:
// Import an existing, funded account
const bankAccount = {
privateKey: '0x51788d6e1eae7c73e1663d63404f8633ceffb3543005e6ab3509129caeb483d7',
address: '0xFAfD7d820bf9294d344393A43cDB0F693e91Cfab'
// Add the account private key to contractKit so it can sign transactions
async function transferStableToken() {
// Get the stable token (cUSD) contract
const stableToken = await contractKit.contracts.getStableToken()
// Get + print the balance of the bank account
const balance = await stableToken.balanceOf(bankAccount.address)
console.log(`Stable Token balance of ${bankAccount.address}: ${balance}`)
// Transfer the specified amount to the specified recipient
const tx = await stableToken.transfer(recipient, weiTransferAmount).send({
from: bankAccount.address,
// Get + print the transaction hash
const hash = await tx.getHash()
console.log(`Transaction hash`,hash)
// Get + print the transaction receipt
const receipt = await tx.waitReceipt()
console.log(`Tranaction receipt`, receipt)
// Get + print the new account balance
const newBalance = await stableToken.balanceOf(bankAccount.address);
console.log(`Stable Token balance of ${bankAccount.address}: ${newBalance}`)
