Using grant allowances to execute transactions

As one of the primary use case of the Fee Grant module is to help with onboarding new users, this section of the guide will show how to allow users to execute transactions using the allowance granted to them.

Query a grant allowance

Now that an allowance has been assigned to an account address, you should be able to verify the details of that grant. The returned information will include the granter's address, the allowance amount, and any other conditions set by the granter, such as the expiration date of the allowance.

The following command using secretcli will give the details of a grant allowance:

secretcli query feegrant grant "granter_address" "grantee_address" 


  '@type': /cosmos.feegrant.v1beta1.BasicAllowance
  expiration: null
  - amount: "1000000"
    denom: uscrt
grantee: secret1q0rth4fu4svxnw63vjd7w74nadzsdp0f23e0uy
granter: secret1tq6y8waegggp4fv2fcxk3zmpsmlfadyc7lsd69

This can also be achieved via the following API endpoint where api_endpoint is an API endpoint connected to one of the Archway networks (Testnet or Mainnet). granter is the address that granted the allowance and grantee is the address that received the allowance:



  "allowance": {
    "granter": "secret1tq6y8waegggp4fv2fcxk3zmpsmlfadyc7lsd69",
    "grantee": "secret1q0rth4fu4svxnw63vjd7w74nadzsdp0f23e0uy",
    "allowance": {
      "@type": "/cosmos.feegrant.v1beta1.BasicAllowance",
      "spend_limit": [
          "denom": "uscrt",
          "amount": "1000000"
      "expiration": null

Basic Keplr example

The following example will allow a user to unwrap sSCRT into SCRT using a feegrant on mainnet.


Before moving forward, ensure that you have completed the following prerequisites:

  • Install the Keplr extension on your browser

  • Install the secret.js library within your project

Execute transaction

  1. Set the fee granter and contract addresses.

const smartContractAddress = "secret1k0jntykt7e4g3y88ltc60czgjuqdy4c9e8fzek";
const feeGranterAddress =  "secret1tq6y8waegggp4fv2fcxk3zmpsmlfadyc7lsd69";
  1. Define the transaction details which includes the message to the contract (MsgExecuteContract) and sign and broadcast the transaction.

const tx = await secretjs.tx
            new MsgExecuteContract({
              sender: secretjs.address,
              contract_address: smartContractAddress,
              sent_funds: [],
              msg: {
                redeem: {
                  denom: "SCRT"
            } as any)
            gasLimit: 150_000,
            gasPriceInFeeDenom: 0.25,
            feeDenom: 'uscrt',
            feeGranter: feeGranterAddress
