I'm newbie to Ethereum, and finding answers of some questions that I have.
I have learned about SC deployment that deploying the contract cost 0.01072934 ether, or about $3.21 USD

So, where that cost goes? it that goes to miners? or anywhere else?


Yes, all ether that is paid for transactions is rewarded to the miner of the block a transaction is included in.

  • Does it include contract invocation too? not a transaction – Hina Khuman Jun 19 '18 at 13:28
  • Yes, because a contract invocation is only done by executing a transaction. – Henk Jun 19 '18 at 14:00

All the gas cost directly goes to miner who mined the blockchain that contains your transaction.

Check out the field Block Reward of this block (5816964) which is 3 + 0.0619125919 ether. It is the sum total of 3 ether static reward and Tx fees (gas cost) in decimals.

  • My question is for SC deployment not a transaction. – Hina Khuman Jun 19 '18 at 13:33
  • Contract deployment is also a transaction. Anything which change the state of blockchain is a Tx. – Sowmay Jain Jun 19 '18 at 13:35
  • So, what miner do in a contract deployment? what they verifies? – Hina Khuman Jun 19 '18 at 13:37
  • Anything which change the state of the blockchain is verified (whether the Tx comply with the sets of rules implied on blockchain) by miners. – Sowmay Jain Jun 19 '18 at 13:47
