Message

The message does not need to be stored separately as a virtual object that exists only in the Ethereum runtime environment, and is an object that the contract delivers to other contracts. It looks very similar to a transaction, but it's actually quite different from a transaction. A transaction is characterized by an Externally Owned Account(EOA) calling, while a message is distinct from a transaction and is generated by a contract, not by EOA. You can call the contract from the contract or, depending on the contract, send a message when you transfer the ether from the contract to EOA.

The message contains the following values:


  • Message originator (from)
  • Message destination (to)
  • Ether that is passed along with the message (value)
  • Optional data fields (data)
  • STARTGAS (gasLimit)
