If I deploy a smart contract, and then self destruct it. Then later send it ether by mistake, can I re-deploy it and be able to access that "lost" ether through the smart contract?


1 Answer 1


No, the address of a contract depends on the nonce of the sender. As you are creating a new transaction, your nonce will be different and the contract will be deployed in a new address.
