Error verifying contract with no constructor arguments on Etherscan

:crazy_face:

I have same error. (Error! Invalid constructor arguments provided. Please verify that they are in ABI-encoded format)

Hi @shooter,

Welcome to the community :wave:

I recommend using the Buidler plugin to verify a multifile contract.

If you run into issues, then please post your contract, whether it was compiled with optimizer and the open source license it uses and I can have a look.

thx @abcoathup

i deployed the contract:


contract code is following:

pragma solidity ^0.5.17;

contract Context {
    // Empty internal constructor, to prevent people from mistakenly deploying
    // an instance of this contract, which should be used via inheritance.
    constructor () internal { }
    // solhint-disable-previous-line no-empty-blocks

    function _msgSender() internal view returns (address payable) {
        return msg.sender;
    }

    function _msgData() internal view returns (bytes memory) {
        this; // silence state mutability warning without generating bytecode - see https://github.com/ethereum/solidity/issues/2691
        return msg.data;

Hi @shooter,

I was able to verify using the flat contract file, solc 0.5.17. Your contract has no constructor arguments so just left that blank.

As an aside, your contract appears to be an ERC20 with some additional logic on minting. You may want to consider extending OpenZeppelin Contracts ERC20 implementation. https://docs.openzeppelin.com/contracts/3.x/erc20

I also suggest looking at: Points to consider when creating a fungible token (ERC20, ERC777)

@abcoathup

Wow, verified successful!
What you use tool genarate the abi file?

I used to abide by OpenZeppelin erc20 specification,writer the code,but arises verified error。

I breaked …

Hi @shooter,

I didn’t need to generate the ABI file. All I did was paste the flat contract into Etherscan, remove the constructor arguments from the field and set the Solidity compiler version.

A post was split to a new topic: Error verifying contract with constructor arguments on Etherscan
