This is more of a curiosity question than anything. However, when I copy an ERC20 contract from ETHERSCAN or BSCSCAN, or copy the safemoon.sol contract from github and try to deploy it via Remix Deployer (on the correct network) on the testnet or mainnet do I create a contract successfully, but there are no tokens minted and no token tracker. When I use the import function then it works.
I guarantee this is something simple I’m missing. And yes, I understand that deploying a copied contract may contain vulnerabilities and is not best practice, and if I move forward with this project
I’ll be hiring a developer, however I just want to understand this issue.
