Sending a Transaction

To send a transaction on the EVM, you must have the provider, the connected wallet, and a valid transaction object. We can make use of the ethers.js frontend library to help with building out our transaction.

Below is a code example that builds out a valid transaction object and prompts the transaction to send with permission from the signer.

import { TransactionResponse, Web3Provider } from "@ethersproject/providers";
import { utils } from "ethers";

 * Send 1 wei from the connected wallet to itself
 * @param {Web3Provider} provider a web3 provider
 * @returns {Promise<TransactionResponse>} a raw transaction object
export async function sendTransaction(
  provider: Web3Provider
): Promise<TransactionResponse> {
  try {
    const signer = provider.getSigner();
    const address = await signer.getAddress();
    const gasPrice = await provider.getGasPrice();
    const transactionParameters = {
      nonce: await provider.getTransactionCount(address),
      gasLimit: utils.hexlify(100000),
      to: address,
      from: address,
      value: utils.parseUnits("1", "wei"),
    return signer.sendTransaction(transactionParameters);
  } catch (error) {
    throw new Error("Error sending transaction");

And that's it! Call this function with the provider you created earlier and you've officially sent a transaction on the EVM with the ME wallet. Please reference our demo if you have any questions on how to put together a full project that natively connects to the ME wallet.
