When I send a transaction it generates hash number but the transaction index number not increased as per below. Can someone care to explain?

  blockHash: "0x71d79df1f93332f4cf3b239231a487ec61f4f0385447520078e51c56913fa091",

  hash: "0x46542d25d044f73cff4c19081284ac84623de6bcaceb1aadd0545d21cd44a056",

  • Give more background about how you are running the blockchain (what client: ganache, geth, parity, ..) how you broadcasted the transaction, how do you know it was not mined. – Daniel Luca CleanUnicorn Mar 24 '18 at 8:32

TransactionIndex is the position of the transaction within the block it was mined in. It is not a global index.

For example if you have transactions T1, T2 in block 1; transactions T3, T4, T5 in block 2 and T6 in block 3.

  • T1 have transactionIndex 0 in block 1, T2 have transactionIndex 1 in block 1.
  • T3 have transactionIndex 0 in block 2, .. T5 have transactionIndex 2 in block 2.
  • T6 have transactionIndex 0 in block 3

Having blockNumber and blockHash in the response means that the transaction was mined and included in in that specific block

Having to null means your transaction tried to create a contract

Is it possible that your transaction created an error and that's why you think it wasn't mined?

What does the receipt look like? Try running
