Common IBC Commands

Nodes can use the Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC) command with cronosd. Here are the commonly used IBC commands on Cronos Chain:

#1 Querying commands for the IBC module on Cronos

./cronosd q ibc


  • channel: IBC channel query subcommands

  • client: IBC client query subcommands

  • connection: IBC connection query subcommands

./cronosd query ibc channel

#2 Querying command to see all channels with the node on Cronos

./cronosd q ibc channel channels 


./cronosd q ibc channel channels --node

Expected output:

- channel_id: channel-0
  - connection-0
    channel_id: channel-131
    port_id: transfer
  port_id: transfer
  state: STATE_OPEN
  version: ics20-1

#3 Querying command to find the specific blockchain channel

./cronosd q ibc channel client-state transfer channel-number


./cronosd q ibc channel client-state transfer channel-207 

#4 Query the trace info for all token denominations

./cronosd q ibc-transfer denom-traces --node
