Unable to deploy contract on Rinkeby network using infura and mnemonic of metamask account.

I am using Atom as IDE for writing smart contract using solidity.

As soon as I execute node deploy.js, I get error as invalid member of stdlib I tried reinstalling npm, solc, truffle-hdwallet-provider but to no luck. Even the console.log does not print anything on console.

enter image description here

Below is the dependency in my package.json:

"dependencies": { "ethereumjs-testrpc": "^6.0.3", "ganache-cli": "^6.4.3", "mocha": "^6.1.4", "python": "0.0.4", "solc": "^0.4.25", "truffle-hdwallet-provider": "^1.0.8", "web3": "^1.0.0-beta.37" }


   const HDWalletProvider = require('truffle-hdwallet-provider');
   const Web3 = require('web3');
   const {interface,bytecode} = require('./compile');

   const provider = new HDWalletProvider(
     'my mnenonic',
     'infure URL'

   const web3 = new Web3(provider);

   const deploy = async()=>{

   const accounts = await web3.eth.getAccounts();

   console.log('Attempting to deploy from account',accounts[0]);

   const result = await new web3.eth.Contract(JSON.parse(interface))
    .deploy({data: bytecode, arguments: ['Hi there!!'] })
    .send({gas: '1000000', from: accounts[0] });

   console.log('Contract deployed to', result.options.address);

  • Seems to be a problem with dependencies, try removing node_modules and running npm install. – Ismael May 5 '19 at 20:40
  • Already tried that. Didn't work. Seems like there is some sort of mismatch between solc, truffle-hdwallet-provider and web3. – Ankur B May 9 '19 at 15:58
  • It is hard to recommend somthing to try without a way to reproduce your error. A couple of things: * "ethereumjs-testrpc" is redundant with "ganache-cli" so it is better to remove it, * There are several bugs affecting recent versions of web3 v1.0, probably you want to force an specific version "web3": "1.0.0-beta.37" (ie remove the ^ in front of the version), if that doesn't work try with "1.0.0-beta.34". – Ismael May 9 '19 at 16:12
