How to extract Ethereum Blockchain data

0 votes

I am trying to extract the data from Ethereum Blockchain. I have used an event in smart contract to get block data and I’m trying to extract like this:

gopi145@ubuntu:~/EventRegistration-POC/EventRegistration$ truffle console

truffle(development)> web3.eth.getTransaction('0x35e92857102b0dbacd43234d1ea57790405eb9bef956b245c6b7737bc23d011b')

{ hash: '0x35e92857102b0dbacd43234d1ea57790405eb9bef956b245c6b7737bc23d011b',

  nonce: 4,

  blockHash: '0x7c790dae57babfe40d68d8aad94913c2b748501c5734aec86cc3fcf0afc4f154',

  blockNumber: 5,

  transactionIndex: 0,

  from: '0x031e060414a0d2573f5b10bc75c0894d72288292',

  to: '0xa88a366e888bbccfb78092957ffc7760bc7c6db1',

  value: BigNumber { s: 1, e: 18, c: [ 60000 ] },

  gas: 200000,

  gasPrice: BigNumber { s: 1, e: 0, c: [ 1 ] },

  input: '0xa28f161c00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000400000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000002000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000b6d40676d61696c2e636f6d000000000000000000000000000000000000000000' }


But for some reason I am not able to decode the block. Need help.

You are using web3.eth.getTransaction(txHash)

web3.eth.getTransaction(txHash) will only return info like like blockHash, transactionIndex, from, to, etc.

You have to register the event using web3js.

This is the code I used:

Solidity code:

pragma solidity ^0.4.17;

//Contract for storing ticket info

contract TicketRes {

  event on_success_booking(address userId, string bookingId, string emailId);

  //Ticket info having two storage values i.e email and userID

  struct BookingInfo{

     string emailId;

     address userId;


  //Map for saving all the info, assuming all ticket has unique id as key. Value is ticket info

  mapping(bookingId=>BookingInfo) internal info;

  function Book() public {


   //Method will save all basic info, and will raise event.

  function onBookingCompleted(address id, string bookingId, string emailId) public {

       info[bookingId] = BookingInfo(emailId,userId);

       on_success_booking(id, bookingId, emailId);


 //You can get info by using bookingid at any point of time.

 function getBookingInfo(string bookingId) public constant returns(string, address){

       return (info[bookingId].emailId, info[bookingId].userId);



Now Javascript code:

// Contract deployed address.

var contractAddress = "0x06433f4fc50423f71329597f50fb0a42cfecb11f";

if (typeof web3 !== 'undefined') {

     web3 = new Web3(web3.currentProvider);

} else {

     // set the provider you want from Web3.providers

     web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider(""));


//Open build folder and you will find contact json file copy the appropriate JSON and paste it there.

var contractABI = web3.eth.contract(/** ABI Here **/);

//Connected contract to your local network

var contract =;

//Loading booking event function.

var booking_event = web3.sha3('on_success_booking(address,string,string)');

//Watching events, when onBookingCompleted() tran's mined then event get triggered. You can get all previous events also. for that need to apply filters., result) => {




   console.log("Result", result); //result.args holds values,, result.args.bookingId and result.args.emailid
