Looks similar to Access Denied - Ethereum Ropsten

Confirmed this is happening to me on ropsten but mainnet works. I tried adding an API key but it is still blocked on ropsten.

I’ll open up a ticket on this and can hopefully get around to adding another ethereum API this week.

Added a new ethereum api, myetherwallet, to the mix. Should be resolved. In version 2.0.20 if you’re using pypi.

Hello,

I’m having the same issue with insufficient funds asking me for 500 trillion wei.
Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks in advance

Any help guys?
I really need to solve this

500 trillion wei is only 0.0005 ether. What’s the problem?

I have more than enough ether but i still get the insufficient funds error.

What could be the case?

Not sure, not seeing that problem myself. Typically it comes from either incorrect settings or the inability to access ethereum API’s.

Could you post your config & logs?
