Response description:

  • txid: Transaction ID.

  • trigger: Triggers.

  • vmstate: VM execution state. HALT represents success, and FAULT represents failure.

  • gasconsumed: The transaction fee, which means the GAS consumed in the transaction execution.

  • notifications: The notification sent by the smart contract. If no notifications is returned it indicates the transfer is not successful. See the Note below.

  • contract: The contract sending the notification. Here is GasToken.

  • eventname: Event name of the notification.

  • state: Notification content, where ByteString is Base64-encoded wallet address and can be converted at


This example shows the log of a successful token transfer, however, in case of a failed transfer or NeoVM exception, the outcomes can be:

  • Failed transfer: no Transfer notification event is returned, execution ends in a HALT state with a stack value of False.

  • NeoVM exception: a Transfer notification event may or may not be returned, but execution ends in a FAULT state.
