I could create a transaction on bep20 using web3.js The result of my transaction is here:


The amount of asset in transaction is 252,000,000 Babydoge, but in the data section, you can see this:

Function: transfer(address recipient, uint256 amount)

MethodID: 0xa9059cbb
[0]:  00000000000000000000000066ab3910a28331fce99de609dd29790f76a9f4e8
[1]:  00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000003e2c284391c0000

Which as you know 3e2c284391c0000 in that data is mentioning the amount I was intended to send! Which its decimal equivalent is 280,000,000 Babydoge, why?? why didn't it transfer 280,000,000 Babydoge??

Interesting point is 280,000,000 - 28,000,000 = 252,000,000 which is happened in transaction actually, Where's wrong that I couldn't see?

Any help would be hightly appreciated

This is because BabyDoge token has a token transfer tax feature.

For ERC-20 tokens, transfer() function can have an arbitrary implementation and do whatever they want, including not giving you the right amount of tokens.

Most of tokens doing trickery like this are scams.

  • but what you say about link that's the same token, with a correct execution of transfer() function

  • I don't care what your link says. Neither does a blockchain. You can to go BSCScan and read the source code of the Babydoge contract yourself. I gave you a correct answer and any argument about is waste of time. Commented Apr 7, 2023 at 9:27
  • sorry buddy, I have no idea how the contract of babydoge is written, I have no experience in there, I just say from the same contract, there are some transactions which I showed you in that link, which act normal, why did my transaction go wrong?...
