Object Types

The Fordefi REST API provides endpoints for accessing the following core objects.


Your account (or workspace) on Fordefi that contains all your vaults, users, policies, and more. There can be one or more user in an organization. A user can be a member in more than one organization. An organization contains a user directory and a set of managed Vaults. Learn more


The basic unit to manage funds. A vault has a single public address but is multi-chain, meaning you can use it across all chains that are compatible with the address and are supported by Fordefi. For example, a single EVM vault can be used on all the EVM chains supported by Fordefi. Learn more.

A native currency or a token. A vault can have multiple assets across multiple chains, all under the same vault address. Learn more.


A transaction is any object that can be signed cryptographically (with a private key).

In general, it can be one of the following types:

  • EVM Transaction: a native currency transfer or a smart contract call on an EVM-based chain.
  • EVM Message: in which a message is signed for off-chain use on an EVM-based chain.
  • EVM Revoke Allowances: in which you create a transaction request for revoking an ERC-20 allowance.
  • Solana Transaction: a native currency transfer on a Solana-based chain.
  • Cosmos Raw Transaction: a general Cosmos transaction can be used for any transaction on any of the supported Cosmos chains.
  • Black Box Signature: in which a payload is signed for use, external to the Fordefi platform.
