I've seen many topics, but I've yet not solved my problem. Please, help me!

 var EthereumTx=require('ethereumjs-tx').Transaction
 const Web3=require('web3')
 const web3 = new Web3('https://rinkeby.infura.io/v3/85xxxxxxxxxxx2af25e829b8d9df')
 const account1='0xbd77caf08fe49d3f5aef6f83fc23b8d2129b468f'
 const main = async () => {
    const count = await web3.eth.getTransactionCount('0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxf5aef6f83fc23b8d2129b468f');
    const nonce = web3.utils.toHex(count);
    const block = await web3.eth.getBlock('latest');

  const gasLimit = web3.utils.toHex(3000000)
  const gasPrice = web3.utils.toHex(22 * 1e9) // 5 gwei
 const privateKey = Buffer.from(

        const txParams = {
          from: "0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx9b468f",
          gasPrice: gasPrice,
          gasLimit: gasLimit,
          to: '0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxb91a04e',
          value: web3.utils.toHex(web3.utils.toWei('1','ether')),
          data: '0x7f7465737432000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000600057',
         chainId: '0x03'

// The second parameter is not necessary if these values are used
const tx = new EthereumTx(txParams, { chain: 'rinkeby', hardfork: 'petersburg' })
const serializedTx = tx.serialize()
    const raw ='0x'+serializedTx.toString('hex')
    // broadcast the trasnaction 



I've got this error

Error: Returned error: insufficient funds for gas * price + value

    For Rinkeby chainId is 4, not 3. Check private key is valid, after signing tx.getSenderAddress() should return the same as from if correct.

  • Please share everything except for your Infura project ID and your private key (i.e., the value of the from field, the value of the to field, and the account address which you pass to getTransactionCount (which should be the same as the value of the from field)). May 24 '20 at 8:48
  • Do you have at least 1.066 ether in the account whose private key is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx? May 24 '20 at 8:52
  • If your account is the same used in the example then it has zero balance in rinkeby.
