so I'm trying to deploy my first contract on rinkeby using web3 and truffle/hdwallet-provider.

even with different gas prices it doesn't get mined.Please help out.

const HDWalletProvider = require("@truffle/hdwallet-provider");
const Web3 = require('web3');
const {abi , bytecode} = require('./compile');
const provider = new HDWalletProvider(
    'december blossom school two brief lunar siren truth purse violin car submit',
const web3 = new Web3(provider)
async function scan(message) {
    return await new Promise(function(resolve, reject) {
        process.stdin.once("data", function(data) {

async function getGasPrice(web3) {
    while (true) {
        const nodeGasPrice = await web3.eth.getGasPrice();
        const userGasPrice = await scan(`Enter gas-price or leave empty to use ${nodeGasPrice}: `);
        if (/^\d+$/.test(userGasPrice))
            return userGasPrice;
        if (userGasPrice == "")
            return nodeGasPrice;
        console.log("Illegal gas-price");

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(abi)
        .deploy({data:'0x' +bytecode ,arguments: ['hii']})
        .send({from: accounts[0],gas: 1500000,gasPrice: await getGasPrice(web3)})
    console.log('contract deployed to', result.options.address);

Output :

 node deploy.js

Enter gas-price or leave empty to use 1000000000: 1050000000

  • There's a pending transaction from 2 minutes ago. Is that yours? Previous ones are from 11 days ago BTW, and your question here is from 1 hour ago, so I can't quite see where your transaction has gone to. – goodvibration Mar 9 at 6:31
  • I was ill so didn't work a couple of dats, now tried it again,same result.I've tried everything i could think of – Ketan Verma Mar 9 at 8:14

According to this, you have used a gas-price of 0.00000000003 Ether (0.03 Gwei (30,000,000 wei)).

According to your question, you have used in your transaction a gas-price of 1,050,000,000 wei.

Conclusion: you are not telling the truth (though you are probably not doing it intentionally).
