Deployment failed with error: Returned error: sender doesn't have enough funds to send tx

Any idea what can cause this to happen?

Hi @CrackerHax,

My first thought is that gasPrice is set very high in network.js.
Are you able to share your network.js?

I was able to reproduce by setting the gasPrice to 5e18.

Deploy

Fails with high gas price.

$ npx oz deploy

network.js

Default gasPrice is 5e9.

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    development: {
      protocol: 'http',
      host: 'localhost',
      port: 8545,
      gas: 5000000,
      gasPrice: 5e18,
      networkId: '*',
    },
  },
};

Box.sol

// contracts/Box.sol
pragma solidity ^0.5.0;

contract Box {
    uint256 private value;

    // Emitted when the stored value changes
    event ValueChanged(uint256 newValue);

    // Stores a new value in the contract
    function store(uint256 newValue) public {
        value = newValue;
        emit ValueChanged(newValue);
    }

    // Reads the last stored value
    function retrieve() public view returns (uint256) {
        return value;
    }
}

gas: 0x1fffffffffffff, no price

Hi @CrackerHax,

What network are you deploying to for development? I am using ganache-cli
What version of OpenZeppelin CLI are you using.

If I use your gas limit, then I get Exceeds block gas limit for a regular deploy using OpenZeppelin CLI 2.8.

network.js

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    development: {
      protocol: 'http',
      host: 'localhost',
      port: 8545,
      gas: 0x1fffffffffffff,
      networkId: '*',
    },
  },
};

Deploy (regular)

$ npx oz deploy

Thing is I updated the contract maybe 7 or 8 times and it suddenly just started doing this.

Hi @CrackerHax,

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to reproduce through upgrades, I ran about 8 upgrades on my development network (ganache-cli).

Are you still getting the error?

I’m not getting an error message just a really high gas price. I am going to have to start over and redeploy all my contracts from scratch.
