Quickly test a running stack

A quick and easy method for testing a running CDK stack, whether in validium or rollup mode, is by sending a zero-value transaction and examining the result.

Get the URL

First inspect the logs to find the zkevm-node-rpc details. For example, in the Kurtosis stack you should see something like:

zkevm-node-rpc-001    http-rpc: 8123/tcp ->

Send transaction with cast

In a terminal window, run the following command where the mnemonic is used just for testing and the address can be any valid account address.

cast send --legacy --mnemonic 'code code code code code code code code code code code quality' --value 0 --gas-price 0 --rpc-url 0x0bb7AA0b4FdC2D2862c088424260e99ed6299148

You should see something like this as output:

Status 1 signifies a successful transaction.

Send transaction with MetaMask

  1. Add the network details manually to MetaMask and accept the defaults and auto-populating fields.

    MetaMask manual network entry

  2. In local/test setup you will find a pre-funded account with private key: 0x12d7de8621a77640c9241b2595ba78ce443d05e94090365ab3bb5e19df82c625. Import the account into MetaMask.
