Ok, I've tried your code and you're calling the connect method of web3Modal in const instance = await web3Modal.connect(); but you declare it some lines later in const web3Modal = new Web3Modal(options);. That's the reason why you're getting this error. I've found this repo in which the connection is made with the same packages you are using. I recommend you taking a look to it and if you keep with problems don't doubt in asking again ser :)

  • hi sit , pls refer to "updated" section. still enocunter same error .
