Networks: Network
The Networks namespace provides constants and functions for working with blockchain networks supported by the SDK.


The Networks namespace can be imported like so:
import { Networks } from "@synapseprotocol/sdk";
// or, for potentially better tree shaking:
import { Networks } from "@synapseprotocol/sdk/common";

Example Usage

import { Networks, ChainId } from "@synapseprotocol/sdk";
import { BigNumberish } from "@ethersproject/bignumber";
// Print the name of a network respective to the passed chainId param.
function printNetworkNameFromChainId(chainId: number) {
const n: Networks.Network = Networks.fromChainId(chainId);
printNetworkNameFromChainId(ChainId.POLYGON); // outputs "Polygon"
const nativeCurrency: string = Networks.AVALANCHE.chainCurrency;
console.log(`The native currency symbol for the Avalanche network is ${nativeCurrency}`); // nativeCurrency will output as "AVAX"

The Network class

The Network class defined in Networks is primarily used as a "data wrapper", in that each instance of a Network is useful for retrieving information about the defined network, such as its name, nativee currency symbol, and Chain ID.
For the majority of use cases, you should only ever need the provided, pre-defined Network instances.
A network contains the following read-only attributes:
  • name (string) - The primary or official name of the network, for example "Binance Smart Chain"
  • chainCurrency (string) - The native currency symbol for this network. Examples: "BNB" on Binance Smart Chain, "AVAX" on Avalanche.
  • chainId (number) - The network's Chain ID. For pre-defined Network instances, this will use a constant defined in the ChainId namespace.
  • tokens (Token[]) - An array containing Token instances for all tokens which the Synapse Protocol supports on this network.
  • tokenAddresses (string[]) - An array of strings containing the actual, on-chain address of all entries in tokens.
The Network class also provides the following functions:
  • supportsToken
    • Returns true if the Token passed to it is supported by the Synapse Protocol on the given network.
    • Params:
      • token: Token - A Token instance
    • Returns:
      • boolean
      • true if token is supported for use on the network by the Synapse Protocol, false otherwise
  • zapIsL2BridgeZap
    • Returns true if the Synapse Bridge Zap contract for this network is a L2BridgeZap, rather than a L1BridgeZap. Currently, Bridge Zaps for all networks except the Ethereum mainnet are L2BridgeZap contracts.

Exported functions

  • fromChainId
    • Returns a Network instance based on the passed Chain ID, if it corresponds to a network which is known and supported by the Synapse Protocol.
    • Params:
      • chainId: BigNumberish
    • Returns:
    • Network
    • Network instance if it corresponds to a supported network, or null.
  • tokensForNetwork
    • Returns the array of Tokens which are supported by the Synapse Protocol on a given network, based on the passed Chain ID.
    • Params:
      • chainId: BigNumberish
    • Returns:
      • Token[]
      • Array of Tokens supported for use on the network respective to chainId (if chainId corresponds to a supported network), or null.
  • networkSupportsToken
    • Returns true if the passed token is supported by the Synapse Protocol on the passed network.
    • Params:
      • network: Network | BigNumberish - This param can be either a Network instance, or the Chain ID of a Synapse Protocol-supported network.
      • token: Token - A Token instance to check network support for.
    • Returns:
      • boolean
      • true if token is supported by the Synapse Protocol on network, false otherwise.
  • supportedNetworks
    • Returns an array of Network instances corresponding to all networks supported by the Synapse Protocol.
    • Returns:
      • Network[]
      • Array which contains the pre-defined Network instances ETH, OPTIMISM, BSC, POLYGON, FANTOM, BOBA, MOONBEAM, MOONRIVER, ARBITRUM, AVALANCHE, AURORA, and HARMONY.
