from solcx import compile_standard, install_solc

# Compile our solidity

# get bytecode

bytecode = compiled_sol["contracts"]["SimpleStorage.sol"]["SimpleStorage"]["evm"][

# get abi
abi = compiled_sol["contracts"]["SimpleStorage.sol"]["SimpleStorage"]["abi"]

# for connecting to ganache

w3 = Web3(Web3.HTTPProvider(""))
chain_id = 5777
my_address = "not fill here"
private_key = "not fill here"

# Create the contract in python
SimpleStorage = w3.eth.contract(abi=abi, bytecode=bytecode)

I'm getting an error while importing web3 as "Import "web3" could not be resolved"

I'm working in the venv and all package install with pip btw.

How can I fix the problem?

It works regardless of the VS Code error, better still you can restart your VS Code and the error will be gone


hi I'm also doing that same course, its not at all problem unless u installed web3.py successfully its fine VS code will show it as error but Web3 will work fine when every u run

python deploy.py

enter image description herein terminal

  • Thanks so much! I wasn't printing anything before I saw this so never would have realized that lol Commented Nov 7, 2021 at 6:19

For me it wasn't working with the error. So, the solution for me was installing web3 globally on my local system, outside of the virtual env using pip3 install web3 command. I'm using python3 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.


change your version of python interpreter To " python 3.8.9 " to fix it.
