I get "gas required exceeds allowance or always failing transaction" in web3.js when I call
web3.eth.getGasPrice(). The error suggest that I am trying to mine a contract. I do not, I only want to get the recent gas price on Ropsten.
When I call the same function while connected to Ganache, all works as expected.
- I started Geth on Ubuntu to testnet
- I checked eth.syncing, after a while it returned "false". It has tons of ldb-data so I assume it is really synched.
web3.js reports it connects properly
npm -version web3 6.4.1 (1.0.0-beta.36)
Geth Version: 1.8.15-stable
I ran out of ideas. I assume that I missed a specific use in Geth.
