Sorry, I am not sure for this issue, maybe you can ask Truffle Team for help.
Maybe you should use a new infura key, I am not sure.


Hi @Altaergo,

You didn’t say which provider you were using. I would check if they had any issues at the time.

You could try another provider (e.g. Alchemy or Infura). See:

Using Infura. Thanks for recommending Alchemy, I didn’t know about it

Hi @Altaergo,

I use both Infura and Alchemy. I generally don’t run into problems.

Did you have any luck deploying?
