I have downloaded and configured Besu as a Free Gas Network (https://besu.hyperledger.org/en/stable/HowTo/Configure/FreeGas/ ).

Creating transaction using Truffle works fine, but not in my application with ethereumjs tx:

        var rawTransaction = {
            "from": account,
            "gasLimit": web3js.utils.toHex(4000000),
            "to": contract._address,
            "value": "0x0",
            "data": encodedData,
            "nonce": web3js.utils.toHex(count),
    const customCommon = Common.default.forCustomChain(
          name: 'my-network',
          networkId: "2018",
          chainId: "2018",
      var transaction = new Tx(rawTransaction,{common:customCommon});
      //signing transaction with private key

      web3js.eth.sendSignedTransaction('0x' + transaction.serialize().toString('hex'))

Than I have an error:

Error : { Error: Transaction has been reverted by the EVM:

This works fine on ropsten for instance (with a different gas parameter, and no customCommon call...).

  • From the gas used 24221 it seems to have started executing the contract. What does the contract do?

    The contract was trying to create an ERC721 based token. But it's a good direction, I will try to simplify the contract to soo if it's something linked to the code itself.
