This library eases the handling of Ethereum accounts, where accounts can be either external accounts or contracts (see Account Types docs).

Note that the library is not meant to be used to handle your wallet accounts, use e.g. the web3-eth-personal package from the web3.js library for that. This is just a semantic wrapper to ease the use of account data and provide functionality for reading and writing accounts from and to the Ethereum state trie.

Note: The library implements EIP-161 to determine empty accounts, and as such doesn't support hardforks before the Spurious Dragon.


npm install ethereumjs-account
