I deploy the contract to the Rinkeby. Can I calculate the contract deployment cost from HardHat?

  • Use the hardhat gas report plugin then write and run a unit test , it will show u how much gas the deployment consumed.

If you npm install hardhat-gas-reporter in your project directory so that it appears in your package.json then whenever you execute a unit test file from your test folder it should log you a chart like this: Avg. Deployments is where you find the gas cost for deployment


You can deploy to a standalone hardhat fork of mainnet and monitor the logs. It will give you something like this:

  Contract deployment: <UnrecognizedContract>
  Contract address:    0x6345e5...
  Transaction:         0xee7f0f...
  From:                0xf39fd6...
  Value:               0 ETH
  Gas used:            3439611 of 3439611
  Block #18153240:     0x9963cd...
