Using the ELA CLI

The ELA CLI is a command line interface that helps you talk to a ELA (mainchain) node.

This tool is built at the same time as the ELA node (make command). You will find more details here.

Here are a few base features for this tool:

  • ELA mainchain transactions
  • Mainchain to sidechains ELA transactions


This tool is not intended to be used by regular application developers in the future. Short term, it can help transferring ELA among the Elastos chains, but this is a process that will be automatized in a near future.
