In case we want to deploy a contract by web3.js we can easily determine the balance of the contract at time of deployment as follows:

const thisContract = new web3.eth.Contract(abi);
        data: bytecode,
        arguments: [< parameters of the constructor>]
       from: "0x3455D7167A2EE2d660EE85F8e90C6b3B1cCB7163",
       gas: 5000000 ,
       gasPrice: '3000000000',
       value: 5000 // here we determine the balance of the contract 
    function(error, transactionHash) {
        console.log('function exec');
    }).then(function(newContractInstance) {
    console.log('Contract Instance:' + newContractInstance.options.address);

In this example, the balance of the contract is value: 5000.

However, when we want to do this by remix, is there any option to determine the value of the balance of the contract at time of deployment ?

Make the constructor payable and set a non-zero value for the ether before hitting deploy (see image)

enter image description here

Hope this helps.

  • Thank you, in fact I asked this question, because I have a problem to make a settlement between payer and recipient using an Ethereum base blockchain (testnet) named Tobalaba (link) I explained the problem here (link) So, I decided to test this contract by remix to find what is the problem. I appreciate any idea to solve this problem. Thanks
