I don't know where i'm doing mistake. I have deployed my contract through remix and truffle and it was deployed without any mistake but now i'm deploying it from web3 [email protected] version and EVM is reverting my transaction.

Here's my code.

    let privateKey = req.body.from_private_key;
    let fromAddress = req.body.from_address;
    let _startTime = req.body.startTime;
    let _endTime = req.body.endTime;
    let _goal = req.body.goal;
    let _wallet = req.body.wallet;

    _goal = web3.utils.toWei(_goal, 'ether');
    web3.eth.defaultAccount = fromAddress;

    let count = await                                                                           web3.eth.getTransactionCount(web3.eth.defaultAccount);

    let gasPrice = await web3.eth.getGasPrice();
    let gasLimit = 3000000;

    const result = await new web3.eth.Contract(JSON.parse(interface));

    const deployData = result.deploy({
      data: bytecode,
      arguments: [_startTime, _endTime, _goal.toString(), _wallet]

    let tx = {
      from: fromAddress,
      nonce: web3.utils.toHex(count),
      gasPrice: web3.utils.toHex(gasPrice),
      gasLimit: web3.utils.toHex(gasLimit),
      data: deployData,
      chainId: 0x04

      web3.eth.accounts.signTransaction(tx, privateKey).then(signed => {
      web3.eth.sendSignedTransaction(signed.rawTransaction).on('receipt', console.log)

Compiling from here:

const path = require('path')
const fs = require('fs');
const solc = require('solc')
const inboxPath = path.resolve(__dirname,'contracts','MyContract.sol')
const source = fs.readFileSync(inboxPath,'utf8');/
module.exports = 

And Response is :

From the stack trace in your transaction https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/vmtrace?txhash=0xa99d769d4965738eba5ebc33ccaf52c5b171bd66f758072bec55b7260932161c

Step    PC      Operation     Gas            GasCost    Depth
[1]     0       DUP1          2721080        0          1

Its seems the beginning of your bytecode is wrong.

  • Here is my deployed contract on rinkeby which is deployed through remix. i don't how starting of my bytecode is going wrong here in web3. rinkeby.etherscan.io/address/… Commented May 14, 2019 at 10:08
  • @HamzaYasin How do you create bytecode? The contract at the address you point starts with 0x6080604052600060045560006005.

  • I'm creating it through [email protected] Commented May 14, 2019 at 17:17
  • @HamzaYasin How do you create contract bytecode? From commandline (which command), from a script (which scripts)? If you execute console.log(bytecode) before deploy what does it looks like? Did you try first deploying a "hello world" contract to ensure your script is working? Either your bytecode is erroneouly generated or in another part of your script it cuts the beginning.

  • Please see above i have updated my question with my compiling scrypt. Another thing i have my contract is in flat file of solidity, it was consisting of 6, 7 contract files and i made it a single flat file to compile and deploy from here. Commented May 15, 2019 at 10:45
