As you can see in this line,

func (b *LesApiBackend) GetEVM(ctx context.Context, msg core.Message, state *state.StateDB, header *types.Header) (*vm.EVM, func() error, error) {
    state.SetBalance(msg.From(), math.MaxBig256)
    context := core.NewEVMContext(msg, header, b.eth.blockchain, nil)
    return vm.NewEVM(context, state, b.eth.chainConfig, vm.Config{}), state.Error, nil

The GetEVM function has a side-effect that sets the balance of from address to MaxBig256. What's the logic behind it?


This is only the temporary EVM for running tnx to get the value then it doesn't make and changes in the state/blockchain
