I am trying to make a few transactions on binance test net using a script in solidity and truffle which is a clone of PANCAKESWAP. I was able to successfully compile and execute the script once. When I tried to do it again on different addresses for router and factory it gave me the following error:

StatusError: Transaction: 0xc94424b8c6037e75e0eaf5f21982e2f73f88e71e18e0e5e783c642d6210e686f exited with an error (status 0).

When i tried to do the same using a truffle command instead of the script it gave me the same error. The truffle command was:

pool.addLiquidity("0x84D2A9d0D51fd578c76908603bfdd91417F54915","0x22E692b514690757Bc26DE1C01d4Fc7207d30f90",4000,4000,7000,7000,"0xe95745a8F4E3cDb1cF5bfFD4A94F0B249e99f489",Math.floor(Date.now() / 1000) + 60 * 10).then(function(r){console.log(r);});

My liquidity functions are below: I have even tried remove the assert statement and replacing it with an if but face the same error.

    can you verify your contracts on BSC testnet, please? it would get great if you can add the router and factory address on which your script worked (possibly included successful txn id as well)

  • Would recommend you to get your contracts verified and deployed on the bsc testnet and also add it to tenderly (tenderly.co) and debug the failed tx there you will get the point of failure

    can you verify the router & factory involved successful transaction as well? I will update my answer accordingly in the future if I find anything suspicious.

your deploy script fails at:

await router.addLiquidity(...)

while making a call to addLiquidity(), when it reaches:

(uint reserveA, uint reserveB) = PancakeLibrary.getReserves(factory, tokenA, tokenB);

which in turn fails at:

(uint reserve0, uint reserve1,) = IPancakePair(pairFor(factory, tokenA, tokenB)).getReserves();

here the output of pairFor for tokenA and tokenB is 0x78715162d94936c07d811a03e3e0411a4270bf6c while your tokens pair is deployed at 0xb8c774F637C2B40d2a834Bb6c1EecD7c96166Cf9. _addLiquidity fucntion of router creates the pair if it doesn't exists (checks by calling getPair() == 0x000...0) and if pair exists then calls getReserves() which in turn calls pairFor(). If you have made changes to PancakePair then init_hash might change and address calculated by pairFor() to find pair might be different. You can try removing createPair call to factory and check without it.

  • I calculated the init_hash now and added it to the pancake library and deployed and verified the new router again. Then called liquidity function and it still gave me the same error. This is the failed transaction 0x8090a672625fa79932d617ec460ae17a7ea975389604753804ed

Okay after spending days on this issue I came to know that I was just changing the init_hash once before multiple deployments over testnet. The init_hash changes everytime, so you have to copy the init_hash from pancake pair file into pancake library each time. After doing so I was able to successfully add liquidity using my own router and factory address over bsc testnet.

  • I think I am running into the same issue as you. Can you explain a bit more where this init_hash is? I looked in PancakePair.sol but I cannot find it

    The init_hash is located in your PancakeFactory.sol file first you will deploy it and note down the value of hash. Then you will paste this hash value in PancakeLibrary.sol which is located in libraries folder of the periphery repo.
