Matic Gas Station

Matic Gas Station aims to help dApp developers with gas price recommendations, so that they can use it before sending transaction off to Matic network.

origin

At Matic, we were receiving request from dApp developers for building a gas price recommendation service. So we took some inspiration from Eth Gas Station, and built one.

availability

Matic Gas Station has been deployed both on Matic Mumbai Testnet & Matic Mainnet, where it analyzes recent 500 transactions and recommends gas price.

usage

Matic-Mainnet

For getting gas price recommendation from this oracle, send GET request to https://gasstation-mainnet.matic.network

cURL

curl https://gasstation-mainnet.matic.network

JavaScript

fetch('https://gasstation-mainnet.matic.network')
.then(response => response.json())
.then(json => console.log(json))

Python

import requests
requests.get('https://gasstation-mainnet.matic.network').json()

interpretation

  • Example JSON response will look like this.
{
"safeLow": 1.0,
"standard": 9.0,
"fast": 29.0,
"fastest": 45.0,
"blockTime": 2,
"blockNumber": 2650006
}
  • {'safelow', 'standard', 'fast', 'fastest'} are gas prices in GWei, you can use these prices before sending transaction off to Matic, depending upon your need
  • 'blockNumber' tells what was latest block mined when recommendation was made
  • 'blockTime' in second, which gives average block time of network
