  1. Hey Carlos, thanks for the informative blog post. Would like you to clarify, did you mean 1 trillion or 1 billion, because the number and the words are contradicing themselves. I mean in the fund_account function. You put 1,000,000,000 but then say it as 1 trillion

  2. “secret_key”: “\u00d1R>\u00fe5\u0088\u009bm\u0014\u0095$u\u00aa\u00e3^\u00e8\u00a0\u0097\b\u00c…
    how to convert it to utf-8

  3. ‘charmap’ codec can’t encode character ‘\x9f’ in position 45: character maps to having this problem while decoding secret_key in create_account

  4. This is super informative and would love to give it a try! I only have one question – is it possible to use a custom token built on the Solana chain, such as by using the custom token address/ID?

  5. Hey, I have a question. Whenever I try to execute a command I get in my IDE, the error: ‘str’ object has no attribute ‘to_solders’. In discord I get the message “Failed to fund account”. Only the create command works for me. How can I solve this problem?

    1. Yo,
      After debbuging this a little bit, I found that the problem is when he is trying to use the public key,
      you should use PublicKey(account[“public_key”])
      instead of account[‘public_key’]
      hope that it helps to you or anyone that try to follow this tutorial 🙂

  6. Wow, nice tutorial thanks for sharing it. Does this still work? I was trying another youtube tutorial on creating wallets and transactions using solana.py and it doesn’t work anymore.
