I can create a provider fairly easily to Rinkeby, Ropsten and the other testnets but I can't seem to figure out how to create a provider that connects to a hardhat mainnet fork.

1 Answer 1


In hardhat, I suppose you must have enabled mainnet forking already

hardhat: {
  forking: {
    url: ''https://mainnet.infura.io/v3/key',
      blockNumber: 13413700,

Then, you can get the ethers provider by using hre.ethers.provider in your code.
