I was trying to use Oraclize just for testing. I was facing problems deploying a sample contract from quick-start section of oraclize doc. I tried to use both testrpc and private network for deployment of smart contract.
On connecting remix to testrpc and deploying contract, I was hit by an error stating:
creation of browser/ExampleContract.sol:ExampleContract errored: Error: sender doesn't have enough funds to send tx. The upfront cost is: 1000000000000000000000000000001934427 and the senders account only has: 99999999999990327865 at runCall (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:69347:10) at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:11327:24 at replenish (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:8420:17) at iterateeCallback (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:8405:17) at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:8380:16 at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:11332:13 at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:64434:16 at replenish (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:64381:25) at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:64390:9 at eachLimit (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:64314:36) at /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:65494:16 at VM.AsyncEventEmitter.emit (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ethereumjs-testrpc/build/cli.node.js:64085:3)
So ideally saying the upfront cost of deploying this contract is 1000000000000000000 ethers.
Now when I tried connecting this to my private network and tried the same, I was git by an error stating:
creation of browser/ExampleContract.sol:ExampleContract errored: Gas required exceeds limit: 2002192. An important gas estimation might also be the sign of a problem in the contract code. Please check loops and be sure you did not sent value to a non payable function (that's also the reason of strong gas estimation).
In both cases, the gas estimate too high preventing me from deploying contract.
I also tried to deploy the same contract using Ethereum-Wallet connected to my private network. But this time instead of importing
oraclizeAPI.sol, I pasted it's code above my code (AFAIK, there is no way to import contracts files in ethereum-wallet yet).But here also I was hit by
Intrinsic gas too low error.
PS: I have successfully deployed the same contract on Ropsten using MEW. Also I was able to deploy same contract using truffle and testrpc. So what's the problem with remix.
