Simple Summary

Include eth_chainId method in eth_-namespaced JSON-RPC methods.


The eth_chainId method should return a single STRING result for an integer value in hexadecimal format, describing the currently configured “Chain Id” value used for signing replay-protected transactions, introduced via EIP 155: Simple replay attack protection | EIP-155]].


Currently although we can use net_version RFC1831 - Remote Procedure Call Protocol Specification Version 2 (RPC) call to get the current network ID, there’s no RPC for querying the chain ID. This makes it impossible to determine the current actual blockchain using the RPC.
