I created a forked mainnet off Ethereum mainnet using my alchemy address and created the fork using Hardhat, I was able to see the fake contracts in the forked mainnet.

I'm running the following code using Hardhat and ethers on my Visual Studio code:

//Lesson 61 - Connecting to Mainnet Fork

     it("Send a transaction / swaps a Token", async () => {
        //const hre = require("hardhat")

        //const hre = require("hardhat");
        //const assert = require("assert");
        const [ownerSigner] = await ethers.providers.getSigners();
        console.log(ownerSigner); //Not working..!!

});

I ran npx hardhat test and I get the following error:

Read and Write to the Blockchain ✔ connects to a provider, factory, token, and a router 1937067327436140972299 This is amount.string ✔ Gets the Price of amountsOut (2639ms) 1) Send a transaction / swaps a Token

2 passing (3s) 1 failing

  1. Read and Write to the Blockchain Send a transaction / swaps a Token: TypeError: ethers.providers.getSigners is not a function at Context. (C:\Users\User\flashloanTest\hardhatTest\test\sendSwapTX.js:86:58) at processImmediate (node:internal/timers:478:21)

I've been struggling with this for a day now, any ideas please? High appreciate your help.

thanks in advance.

You can see the error is ethers.providers.getSigners is not a function

Change it to:

ethers.provider.getSigner() => signer

ethers.getSiger() => signer

ethers.getSigners() => signer[]

  • Could you post your git repo? I don't see any problem with your code.

  • Hi,Sure, here is my git repo - github.com/fuzzyshak/HardhatSwap/upload/main note: I installed hardhat using npm, then I installed ethersJS using 'npm install ethers^5.7.2 as this is the best version that works with the code.
