Error: insufficient funds for gas * price + value

EDIT: if you’re a scammer, skip this one and don’t waste your time

  • I have a wallet with 1 MATIC.

  • There is a contract which has a solidity payable method which requires 10 MATIC in value to run.

I use Truffle to interact with the contract. Before broadcasting the transaction I’m calling eth_estimateGas to estimate the gas. But I receive the following error:

Error: Internal JSON-RPC error.
  "code": -32000,
  "message": "err: insufficient funds for gas * price + value: address 0xbf337198a81A1c0af6A8342c0e220137804b38bb have 1575618996177023627 want 10000000000000000000 (supplied gas 10010499)"

I find it peculiar because when I use Ganache network, and the fee from that contract is set to 200,000,000ETH, the gas is being estimated with no errors.

Can I estimate the gas required by a transaction on Polygon Network even if I don’t have the actual amount of funds? How should I approach this?
