  • thank you very much. It worked, except for that I needed more gas. I increased the gas to 21000, but then it told me: ReferenceError: 'web3toWei' is not defined at <anonymous>:1:98 Commented Jun 25, 2017 at 15:35

  • this is what I wrote: eth.sendTransaction({from:eth.coinbase, to: "0x4bf4c01831EB2Bf63e0D5318Ff6eEd3 9f892A2fC" ,value: web3toWei(4.99, "ether") gas:21000}) Commented Jun 25, 2017 at 17:36
  • You need a dot between web3 and toWei. See my previous comment.
